The ride often does more than provide local roadies a chance to drill it on a Tuesday evening. Throughout December, all riders will need to contribute at least one can of food to get on the course with donations going to a local food bank. Over Halloween, the ride featured costume and pumpkin carving contests.
And on Jan. 19, Fleming and the Underground Crit will hold the Not So Underground Crit, a true-blue official criterium race on the course with actual prizes and officiating, with proceeds going to a local non-profit.
