    Somo Squealer - What, when, how?

    So I heard someone talking about the Squealer at Somo as a fun grassroots gathering. Can anyone fill me in on the what, where, when, ...

    Feel free to PM or post up here.

    Is it happening? I think it's the same folks who put on the Flight of the Pigs, so it may have seen it's last days.

    EDIT: I may be incorrect. Looks like it indeed might be happening. It's Easter weekend. Not sure exact day. You ride National End to End and have to carry an egg. Broken egg result in a time penalty. Not sure who is organizing it, however.
    Nobody gives a s#$t you singlespeed.

    The Squealer looks to be making one last appearance.

    I haven't done the event, but I think the route starts up on Ridgeline, down to Mormon Loop, up Mormon Loop to National. Take National all the way west to the finish at Bajada. It's a timed event with riders starting in 30 second intervals or something like that.

    You find your designated egg on route, perhaps bribing the bunnies to speed things up. Carry the egg to the finish unscathed to avoid time penalties.

    Looks to be every Saturday before Easter and starts pretty early. March 26th this year. An article from DC on the gathering in 2011. Dude, you won the Squealer! - Drunkcyclist.com

    I was hoping there would be one last one. I plan on doing it even if it's by myself.

    Jim definitely said at FotP that they will be doing the squealer one last time so stay tuned. Make sure you are on his mailing list.

    I messed up and signed up for both the Squealer and the AES Sedona ride. Since I paid to squeal looks like I'll miss the Sedona one again. Next year for sure.
