Shine up your trikes: Tour de Castro's wheelin' through

Three on one!

Sat/22 -- hereforthwith known to the State of California and someday to the US and World as Harvey Milk Day -- is going to be a big gay deal. One of the primo partyish events, however, will be the tricycle-team race Tour de Castro, put on by those gloriously roamin'-handed Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Grab two-to-five friends to make your trike-team, and register by Sat/15 for a totally fun-filled way to celebrate Ms. Milk AND raise money for AIDS. Straight people totally accepted! (We're open like that). Bonus: It's also a bar crawl. Details after the jump.


The Tour de Castro is a race, bar crawl, costume, raffle, and fundraiser extravaganza benefiting AIDS/LifeCycle 9 bike riders who are still need of donations to reach the minimum $3,000 required to participate in the annual ride. As in previous years, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence want to make sure everyone rides!

Teams of 2 to 5 riders will race to several Upper Market/Castro neighborhood “pit stops”. Participants are asked to find sponsors who pledge a donation to the riders for each stop they successfully complete. A grand prize is awarded to the team raising the most donations. The first three contestants to win the “race” also will win prizes. Other prize categories include best gluts [sic], best costume, most outrageous and best decorated tricycle.
