We Debut Our New Broom Wagon

Veteran Peckerheads have come to accept over the years that the Invitational is a self-supported ride. Support vehicles are for TOSRV, we have always reasoned. Our rugged individualists would be insulted at the thought of riding home in a minivan. In fact, some of our best stories have come from those who cracked and had to find their way home. Who doesn't remember when Neil Llewellyn was going so slow he fell over on Dill Road. Or when I dry-heaved my way home over the 20 miles in '06. Or when AARP Peckerhead Jack Bargaheiser plowed himself under 50 yards from the finish? Good times, baby, good times.

For Peckerhead management to sign off on a follow car, such a vehicle would have to present a set of distinct advantages that our riders could appreciate. We think we may have found such a mode of transport. See above.

Dangerous. Impractical. Environmentally hostile. A parachute!

2015 PKR Update

Whew. Preparations this year have been like no other. I guess selling your house and preparing to move while rolling PKR style will do that.

Anyway, we are totally up and running full-steam, though there will likely be more last minute stuff than usual.

PKR HQ will be at 651 Sloane for one final year.

Your invitations will drop in the mail early this week or - if you're lucky - be hand delivered by Mgt.

For those that ordered PKR kit (THANKS!), things are right on schedule. Podiumwear has even agreed to cover drop shipping on all orders. So your stuff should arrive directly at your doorstep.

In other news, the routes are not yet marked. We are actively looking at some road closures and other stuff. So routes may be shifting around a bit up to the last minute. However, the 2014 routes are representative.

Finally, our sponsors have once again come through huge and we'll be delivering the baddest SWAG bags in cycling to luck raffle winners. Make sure - when you are throwing your money around - that you direct a good deal of it at the sponsors.

More to come. PKR Mgt.
