Our goal is an interactive bike ride and celebration involving our beautiful city and you!
We’ve come a long way this first year and want to celebrate with everyone, as well as, strive to keep growing. We are so thankful to the Chicago bicycling community that has been such a wonderful support to us. Over the past year we have performed at such events as; Tour De Fat Chicago, Critical Mass, Midnight Marauders, The Bike Winter Cycle Swap and Schubas Bike Bash. It was time for us to make our own event and give back to everyone that has been there to cheer us on!
Most Alley Cats are about speed, however, that's NOT OUR STYLE. We encouraged a fun-spirited scavenger hunt to seek out our favorite spots that hold significance to The Racketeers. Riders had 2.5 hours to leisurely find their way to our secret places.
