The tenth annual Monster Track Race theme this year was A Day in the Life of a NYC Messenger. Riders came from all over the US, Europe, and Japan to experience the exhilarating ride in NYC traffic. The checkpoints were all based on real life stops of a NYC messenger.
My favorite stop was Continuum Cycles because it is what I call the default location for the messengers I know. That’s where I know I can find the messengers who aren’t busy making deliveries. I love that the only rule is No Brakes and I love that the snow waited on the race to end!

A two man relay race is being held in Fullerton this Friday the 19th of December. The race will take the Skyline route, a very posh neighbourhood in the hills of Fullerton with amazing views and turns.
L.A. Record, F Yeah Fest and Eagle Rock Music Fest will be hosting a Toys 4 Tots & Blanket Drive under the guise of a rocking Christmas Party. Held on December 19th at the very cool Eagle Rock Center for the Arts, the evening will feature music by Blank Blue, Entrance, and Underground Railroad To Candyland, as well as a DJ set by Dennis Owens from Goodfoot.
Admission to this Charity event is $5 for those who show up with a sealed toy or blanket and $7 for those without. While the gift of giving is incentive enough to not show up empty handed, Santa and his helpers will be rewarding those who come bearing a present for the cause. You could receive anything from a bottle of whiskey to a banana seat bicycle to the Beatles discography… even a boatload of Incase stuff.
The party starts at 8pm and is all ages, so everyone can participate in the jingle bell rock. Come on out and do some good while having a blast!
This weekend Incase again returns to Poplife at the White Room in Miami! Shake off your pre-holiday stress with a good old fashioned dance party featuring DJ regulars Induce, Mike Deuce & Aramis. We’ll be handing out iPod, iPhone & notebook cases under the mistletoe for all you sweaty lovers in love! Come spend one of your last nights of the year with us!
Incase is stoked to sponsor Graffiti Rider, an all-city scavenger hunt style alleycat ride/race paying homage to the history of Graffiti in NYC.
Riders will seek out famous pieces and graffiti spots, meet old school writers who will judge their style, and show skills with spray paint, KRINK markers and sharpies.
The race will start with a BBQ in Brooklyn. Riders will have approximately six hours to travel around the five boroughs and return with a completed manifest.
