Trykes relay

This month’s SSOM celebrates all things pride with “Pride on Main.” Watch dudes in high heels bolt down Main at the Drag Races or watch leather-clad ladies scoot their way to the finish line at the Tryke Races.

Pride on Main is presented by Below Zero Lounge. All proceeds from the Drag Races and Tryke Races benefit Pride 2015. Tips from the Cincinnati Sports Leagues Beer Garden will be donated to Caracole, our beer ambassadors in July.

SSOM runs 12-5 PM in historic Over-The-Rhine and is always free and open to the public.

Take a look at what you can expect this Sunday (and join our official Facebook event for updates).
