8th Annual SLUG Cat 06.27 @ Saturday Cycles


On Saturday, June 27, SLC cyclists donned their masks and rallied together at Saturday Cycles to compete in the 8th Annual SLUG Cat Presented By New Belgium Brewing and Sparrow Electric!

Given only a manifest of clues and a copy of SLUG Mag’s 8th Annual Bike Issue, riders were off to solve riddles and and compete in challenges ranging from trivia questions at SLUG‘s GREENbike station to throwing tires at the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective.

Not even the blazing sun could stop the riders from giving it their all in this scavenger hunt–style race. Their hard work was rewarded with a free slice of ’za courtesy of Lucky Slice and some schwag from our incredible sponsors.
