Waste Warriors; an Alleycat!

Take part in a cool event hosted by Second Cycle, a community bike shop up in the Hilltop neighborhood. You could win a Destiny City Comics gift card. Destiny City Comics will also be an optional stop on the ride.

Info taken from 2nd Cycle’s event listing on Facebook:

“WARRIORS, COME OUT AND PLAY!

Ride your bike, and clean up the streets of Tacoma at the same time! We will be awarding prizes based on quantity and quality of trash collected. Quickest ride will get a prize, too.

This alleycat includes a waste themed manifest. At least one stop will have a timed trash pick-up thanks to the City of Tacoma Government.

All riders welcome! Ride at your own pace. This event is all about having fun and cleaning up our community.

Guaranteed to be Tacoma’s trashiest bike ride!

After party will be at 7 Seas Brewing Co. (21+)”
