There will be a bike swap at 9AM and a day of bicycle racing this Saturday at Chimborazo Park as part of the five-day 2012 North American Cycle Courier Championships.
The NACCC is the premier bike messenger event on the continent:
The hardest working couriers throughout the continent converge to socialize and face off for a chance at the title of Courier Champion. Over the years the championship has been to various major cities with each locale influencing the courses, rules and style of the competition. This year Richmond, Virginia will be showcasing it’s downtown’s inclines and historic cobbled streets for the event. The weekend event will be a grueling logistical challenge of strength, speed, and mental capacity. Open forums, parties, and side events turn the weekend into a true celebration of sport, friendships and culture.
We invite everyone to attend as well as compete. There are several Championship Titles up for grabs. Tons of side events and parties for everyone’s entertainment. All current working messengers and food delivery persons please sign up for the Messenger Category. If you’ve worked in the past (no matter how long) please enter the Ex-Messenger Category. For all commuters, civilians, industry personal and volunteers sign up in our “Open” category. A helmet, bag, and lock are required at all times during competitions. Your event registration signs you up for both qualifiers, all the side events and social gatherings as well as an official T-shirt.
