Bent Wheel Bash 2017 Random Items

Before you head out our way for the race this weekend, here’s a few things to remember:

  1. Bring cash, if you can, for the gate fees. We will be able to take cards closer to the buildings, but not at the gate.
  2. The Specialized Demo Van will open up Saturday at noon. Make sure to give yourself enough time to try out some of their newest bikes.
  3. The Toasted Traveler food truck will be open on Saturday from 4-7 and on Sunday from 10-3. Try out their delicious sandwiches!
  4. BikeTown will have a booth set up with some clearance clothing for sale…shorts, jerseys, gloves…come ready to shop.
  5. Bent Wheel Bash t-shirts will be on sale in the registration building for $15. All proceeds benefit the Abilene Police Department.
  6. The weather forecast is looking pretty good, but this is March in West Texas so be prepared for anything, especially a bit of wind.

It’s going to be a great weekend. We can’t wait to see you at Bent Wheel Bash 2017!
