Get ready Birmingham for some fast racing this Saturday night! I want a lot of people to be there to cheer everyone on so I’m going to start out with the quick details and directions to the race.
Check out the official 2008 Pepper Place Race Flyer online.
Saturday, September 13, 2008 – 8:45 PM
My race is at 8:45pm and it will last about an hour. Lennie Moon (along with several other of my teammates) is racing my race as well as a race earlier in the evening at 6:30pm. There are kids races even earlier in the day at 2:00pm. Analise and Josiah are both going to race! Former Tour de France winner Floyd Landis will be at the races and making guest appearances throughout the night.
The address of a good place to park is:
2817 2nd Ave S
Birmingham, AL 35233
From 280 at the Summit, head west towards Birmingham
Follow 280 onto Red Mountain Expressway into downtown Birmingham
Exit 280 at the 3rd/4th Avenue South exit (maybe 1/2 mile past St. Vincents Hospital)
At the end of the ramp, turn left onto 27th St
Turn right onto 2nd Ave South
The race course will be immediately in front of you
Look for parking on the street on 2nd Ave, 28th St, or any of the parking lots nearby
A large (hopefully!) group of my friends and family will be on the corner of 2nd Ave and 28th St.
