One Day Until Super Prime Super Party!

On Saturday, June 28, the Downer Avenue neighborhood erupts in a bike race known as the ISCorp Downer Classic. It's a full-on all-day party.

And the biggest party by far is the Ben's Cycle Super Prime Party. For $25, you get a wristband that entitles you to as much food and drink as you need, plus a super-awesome t-shirt designed by our very own Steve Tiber. 

We'll use the money we raise at the party to give "significant amounts of cash" to the winner of the men's and women's primes, the rider who wins a particular lap during the race. Last year, Ben's handed out $1,000 to the women's winner, and we hope to double that this year!

Finally, one of the highlights of the event is the annual tricycle race, pitting area shop owners in a bitter contest. This year, Vince invited special celebrity guest Scott Ford, defenseman for the Milwaukee Admirals, to ride a specially-fabricated tricycle. 

It's going to be off the hook!

5 p.m.       Pro Women's Race
6:30-ish    Trike Race
