Maintain and The Bicycle Company ( have teamed up to bring you VELOS LOCOS: Alley “Rat” Race, a scavenger hunt and race through the heart of El Chuco.

We’ve got some dope give aways for the winning teams including some Chrome merchandise ( and other great bike paraphernalia. For the $10 entry fee every person will get some sweet schwag, Maintain merch, and a free slice of pizza from Pizza Joint (

The start/finish will be at The Pizza Joint. 4-person teams will receive a detailed map with multiple labeled checkpoints upon registration. Once the race starts, teams must ride to every checkpoint and take a cell phone photo with their ENTIRE team at each spot. For example, if one of the checkpoints is Los Logartos at San Jacinto Plaza (wink, wink..) all you gotta do is ride downtown to the alligator statue and snap a shot of your entire team next to it. Do the same for every checkpoint on the map and return to The Pizza Joint for free pizza and high-fives. Simple, right? Heh, heh…

The Maintain Creative Coalition will be providing beats and live painting at the finish. Even if your not gonna ride come and enjoy a free event full of food, art, and music. If you are gonna ride get ready cause things are gonna get gritty.


Proceeds for this event are to raise funds for El Paso’s first ever bicycle co-op. All proceeds from this event go straight towards the purchase of materials needed to get the place up and running (bike tools, bike stands, etc.). We are so close!
