College students + Alcohol + Bicycles = Police



Texas Tech’s annual “Tour de Tech Terrace” bicycle event (in which students ride 10 miles, visiting 10 houses for 10 drinks along the way) was somewhat less successful this year than in the past.  Of the 1105 students who started, only 50 made it to the last house.  Police shut down the event after neighbourhood residents complained of students being drunk and noisy (which, really, is the definition of a student).

First-year student and future Texas Tech punching bag Bobby Cramer told the student newspaper that he didnt’ participate but wanted to witness the inevitable bicycle crashes.  “Just go slow and be safe,” he said, “just like my mom taught me.”
