Are you ready to witness a mad-cap adventure through a post-apocalyptic world full of human-powered vehicles and bicycles? Can you handle the thought of hordes of zombies, flying monkeys, robots and maybe even a Mad Hatter or two invading your safe zone? If so, then you must find your way to the third annual Obtainium Cup Contraptor’s Road Rally in Vallejo.
During this 4-mile trek, you will observe teams in contraptions of their own design tackle many hazards including flying monkeys, brain-eating zombies and mad tea parties. And if you are observing the race from the comfort of your own bicycle, feel free to join in the adventure, but please observe road etiquette and rules.
