If any of you are into biking and competing this is your event.
My wife and I did this last year, and it was INSANE. Think of it as a version of the Amazing Race, but on bikes riding around Minneapolis.
Crazy gear/bike are NOT required. My wife did it last year with a mountain bike with street tires, and I rode my single speed road bike.
Its an all day event, with New Belgium throwing an after party with games and prizes. Not to mention adult big wheels.
Heres some info from the website:
TIME: Packet Pickup – Saturday, 11-2
Ride – Sunday, 9am
After-Party – Sunday, 10-2 (bring your friends!)
The New Belgium Brewing Urban Assault Ride is the country’s biggest bike scavenger hunt series, hitting the streets of 10 cities in 2011. You and your fun-loving teammate will grab your favorite two-wheeled steed and complete funky obstacle courses at checkpoints all over town. It’s fun. The after-party is wild. There are prizes. There might even be a moustache contest. I’m just sayin’. One thing’s for sure - you’ll definitely hurt from smiling after a full day of beer, bikes, and big wheels!

Post up with any questions or if you've done it before. SO fun!
