The Charm City Flower Rat is a beginner-friendly, Alley-Cat-style bike race that I organized in the spring of 2023 in Baltimore, MD.
As a part of organizing I created all of the graphics for the race including a logo, social media cards, flyer, t-shirt, headers, illustrations, a spoke card, and more!
Leading up to the race I reached out to a number of local business in Blatimore who generously donated prizes for the riders. They were all feature on the Flower Rat Instagram account.
I also created a physical flyer that was hung up around the city!
Leading up to the race I created a series of social media cards to reach out for volunteers at checkpoints and as a countdown to the race.
I also used the spoke card design on a t-shirt that I hand printed. At the end of the race I also set up a tie-dying station where racers could customize their shirts.
For the day of the race each rider was given a manifest that contained each checkpoint in the race, a hint to their location, a map of the race area, and a list of activities that would give each team bonus points.
During the race, each team had to complete as many checkpoints as possible before the race ended. Some noteable checkpoint activities included pieing your teammate in the face, taking an "Easter Photo", Drawing a portrait of your teammate and their bike, and a tea party.
