That’s right! From 7 pm Friday until 7 pm Saturday we rode our bikes around a 3 mile loop in Charlotte known as the Booty Loop. It was a charity race and we had a team of 6 riders. Each rider took turns so that we had a rider on the course for the entire 24 hour race period. Yes, that meant someone had to ride at night. My husband rode from 11:30 pm until 1 am, 4 am to 5:30 am and then again from 4 pm to 5:30 pm. (He’s asleep right now.) I rode from 7 pm until 8:30 pm on Friday and then 5:30 pm until 7pm on Saturday.
It was pretty awesome seeing hundred of bikers packed into a 3 mile loop. The only thing that would have made the event better was a way to keep track of our team’s total miles. We were not wearing time chips and the race only kept track of 24 hours of biking, not distance. That being said, it’s a great race. It was very organized and well supported. There were even people cheering at 4 am!
So, why is it called the Booty Loop? This 3 mile loop is located in one of Charlotte’s nicest neighborhoods with canopy trees and million-dollar homes. The sidewalks are wide and the lawns are watered and groomed. It’s simply a great place to strut your stuff and a great place for a charity race. Can’t wait for next year!
