2009 Columbus Bum Shuffle Pics and Ride Report

The Bum Shuffle is an alleycat race. I rode with my friend Michael and saw many, many friends who I have not seen in a while. Trenton and Heidi were there from Octopus. If you have not heard they were highlighted in Mountain Bike magazine in the winter gear section.

They handed us the map with the checkpoints and we plotted our route. We headed north to Cooke, west on Cooke to High. Down High where we passed several checkpoints. Then down Doddridge and through the brush to the trail. Down the trail to Fifth for a checkpoint. West on Fifth to Grandview. At Grandview and Goodale we stopped at the park for a checkpoint. Then down Goodale and across Vine to High. Up High to Goodale for a stop and then down High to Long to B1 Bicycles for the last stop. Up 4th to the finish line. We completed it in 1:16. They were tallying all the points for the awards ceremony at the after party. I only picked up some bonus points on a few items. I missed one of the bonus cards and never picked up any cans for bonus points.

I had a great time and it was nice seeing all of my friends from various businesses and other cyclists. B1 Bicycles, Rad Dog, Octopus Caps, Seagull Bags and Stanridge. I hope I win one of the cool prizes.
