It's here! The best, the most original, the most fun club activity night in Alberta is here! The 2016 edition of the DBA BEAT THE WIENER Night Relay is this Friday July 8th in Voyaguer Park in Devon!
We'll meet in the green space that is just past the parking lot of the bike park. It's not the main green space with the skills park... you'll exit the north end of the bike park parking lot, and it's just past the white sea can on your left.
For those of you who are new to the DBA, the Beat the Wiener relay is exactly what it sounds like! You will begin your lap by placing a wiener on the grill. While you are out on your lap, your teammates can only turn your wiener once.... so you better be fast and beat your wiener before it burns! Before the next rider on your team can place their wiener on the grill and head out on their lap, you must be finished eating your wiener (Note: we have learned in past years that cheese smokies aren't a good idea!) And no, buns are not required :-)
This relay is for mountain, CX, or fat bikes.
Teams will be determined on Friday (we just throw gloves in a pile and draw teams).
BYO-wieners, snacks and drinks.
NO COCKTAIL sized wieners! Wieners must be at least the length of your average sized hot dog bun.
This relay is TOTALLY FREE (we're just here to have fun!). Bring your friends... we do require that all participants are members of the DBA or an ABA affiliated club. Riders without an ABA membership can also choose to sign a waiver of liability under the "one ride" ABA policy. This is a DBA club activity - NOT an ABA race.
All riders must have at least a rear red light. We do recommend having some sort of front white light, but who am I to tell you how to race your race ;-) You can be as creative as you want... a little duct tape and a flashlight always works!
We will meet at 7pm to set up the grill, pre-ride the course, choose teams, and do wiener inspection - we have to make sure all wieners are at least regulation size!
Racing will be from 8-11pm! Our winning team will be determined by who completes the most laps... as long as your last lap is started prior to 11pm, even if your rider heads out at 10:59pm, it will still count!
And as always, friends and family are always welcome to watch and heckle... I mean, cheer on the riders!
