The 2009 Rad-Massaker Alleycat is a bicycle race being held on June
14th to raise money for Cycles of Change (, a
non-profit dedicated to brining cycling to low income areas of the Bay

Following on the success of the 2006 & 08 Oakland Scrape Alleycat Races
(, which raised over $3000 for
the San Francisco Bike Messenger Association's Broken Bones Fund, we
have decided to put together another race, because a. Cycles of Change
a worthy charity doing great things for the community, and b. last
year's race of off the hook!

The Rad-Massaker is an “Alleycat” style race in which participants are
given a list of checkpoints spread across the city at the start and
must determine the best route on their own as opposed to following a
set course. Originated by bike messengers in the 1980's, alleycats are
meant to simulate the types of daily challenges they faced on the job.

This year we are seeking sponsors from the cycling community and
beyond for donations of either cash, to cover our costs, or product to
be given out as awards at the end of the race. All sponsors will have
thier names prominatley featured on a poster which will be placed at
bike shops all around the Bay Area. If you provide one, we are also
happy to hang a sponsor's banner at the finish area after-party as we
did last year.
There's a good chance we will produce a limited t-shirt with sponsors on back!
Location of this years race is under wraps as is the finish.

If you are interested in being a sponsor, please give me a call at
510-812-5696 or send an email to

We will be happy to pick up product directly from you, or you can send
by mail to:
