Cirque du So Gay
Throw on your flashiest helmet, apply some glitter eyeliner, and hop on that bike: It's time for the Cirque du So Gay ride. In this alleycat race/bike tour, participants will take to the streets in search of various LGBT hot spots where they'll complete tasks such as changing bike tires, answering trivia questions on gay history, and entering costume contests for prizes. Riders can choose between the Virgin route, intended for folks wishing to take a more lackadaisical pace, and the Harder! Faster! for those who like to zoom along as quickly as possible. After the race ends, head over to the Saloon for performances, a dance party, and the "lip sync for your bike" contest. Proceeds benefit community organizations.
