GREAT Time!!!

Thank you everyone who rode out the rain and whatnot to come out to the 2nd Annual Big Wheel Pub Crawl. It was GREAT time this year again. There's some pictures available from KT, you can click HERE to get those. Also, Chris posted a bunch of videos up on Youtube. You can click HERE to see those, plus a a video from last year.

Shirts

There are some extra shirts, so $25 dollars today at Wicker park can get you a shirt. If you already purchased a shirtless ticket ( I like to say topless), you'll be first with option of an extra $5 getting you a shirt.

Reminder

Just a reminder that registration including a T-shirt (which I must say are sweeeeet) will end tomorrow at midnight. T-shirts are of limited quantity so you may see some sizes selling out soon. If you haven't registered yet, what's wrong with you!?!?!? Click HERE to register now. We'll still have registration without a shirt available for $20. This will still get you a wristband for the drink specials and let you participate in the races.

The races this year will run nearly the same as last year. We'll have 2 divisions, modified/rubber tired and a plastic on concrete division (no modified rides). We'll no longer split the girls and guys into groups The push start will be ELIMINATED this year due to the big controversy with last year's push starts.

Depending on our numbers come Saturday, we may be splitting into some groups so we can actually fit in some of the bars.

And back by popular demand, there will be a photo scavenger hunt. I'll be working on that tonight. Alright, can't wait to see everyone Saturday, remember, 4pm I'll be at Wicker park, just across from Pontiac Cafe.

Although, its not affiliated with the Big Wheel Pub Crawl in anyway, the Big Wheel Pub Crawl staffers will be heading to Ohm in Wicker Park to dance the night away after the crawl.

Quick Update!

The Drink Specials are listed on the map (click on link to the right). You can also check out the Big Wheel Rally site on the right to check out ways to modify your Big Wheel. If you're still looking for a ride, I saw the Original Big Wheel at K-Mart for $19.99. We'll still be having a best ride contest, so decorate, modify or straight out pimp it. C-ya Saturday! This year's proceeds will go towards Chicago Children's Charites (chicagochildrenscharities.org)
