Big Fricken Bike Party

Postby Ken » Thu Jul 30, 2009 11:26 am

Like my kids ask 3 or 4 times a week... "Dad, are we gonna have a big bike party tonight?"

Well, I say we do it...

Let's start kicking around a date to invite mtb friends from Des Moines, Quad Cities, Northeast Iowa, etc. to the area to enjoy the two trail systems we presently have. We could center it around the event weekend we already have (BevTT / Take A Kid Mt. Biking Day - Oct. 3 & Sugar Bottom Scramble - Oct. 4) or we could pick another date. If not Oct. 3-4, to my knowledge the dates that interfere with the least events in these other areas include:

November 7-8
November 14-15
November 21-22

looking forward to the beverly time trial/sugar scramble--lamba/icorr ftw and of course great sponsors like wob!

we should organize some fun joint group rides either at beverly, sugar, or go down in force to the quad cities to ride their awesome trails. i remember one july 4th weekend when a huge contingent of forcers came to sugar--it was so much fun! :romance-grouphug:

I have tickets to the Chicago Bears vs. the Philadelphia Eagles on November 22nd, so I vote down that weekend.
