Urban Assault Ride Dates Announced

I had a blast at last years UAR when it came through Seattle. What’s the Urban Assault Ride you ask? Basically, two person teams race around the city on an organized bike scavenger hunt. You start the race with a manifest. You plan your own route, and at each check point there is a “Mini-Olympics” style challenge. Once your manifest is complete, you race back the start line, for a massive party hosted by New Belgium Brewing, (makers of Fat Tire Beer.) Last year the challenges included a paper boy toss, mini-keg stilt walk, Bike Joust, and a kid’s sized tricycle race. You don’t have to be in Seattle to participate since the UAR road show might be coming to a town near you. Check out the dates announced below, and learn more about the event after the jump, and if you sign up, tell’em bikehugger sent you!

I was so psyched to see Madison in the list of cities, but it’s not listed on the website!  I might cry!

I was given the list directly from the UAR marketing guru. I bet it just hasn’t hit the website yet.
