Last Bike Night - Tomorrow 9/8/2010
Tomorrow night will be the last Bike Night for the 2010 season. We'll be back next year for another great season of cruising Longmont. This year has been an outstanding year. Lots of new people tried Bike Night, many folks returned after a few years hiatus and then there are the regulars riding every week rain or shine. Together you all made Bike Night's 8th season the best yet!
Tomorrow night we'll have schwag! Acme Bikes stepped up for another great 8th season. Acme has been there from the start and continues their support! Acme donated several t-shirts, a ringer, and what I'm sure will become highly sought after merchandise - a frog and alligator squeakers! If you like Kelly's parrot or Jennifer's sumo wrestler (or Rastler for you Iowans) you'll love these squeakers.
Perky's donated 5 gift certificates for free lattes. Mmmmm caffeinated (or not) goodness.... Visit Perky's when you have a chance and give Neil some love. I learned tonight they make most of their pastries on site along with their organic Ice Cream.... yum.
This year we set a record for the most people ever on a Bike Night ride. The highest turn out was 110 people in early June. The average number of riders dropped from a whopping 73 in June to a record 55 through the season. Still those are some excellent numbers.
We will meet at 6:30 as usual at Roosevelt Park then ride through Old Town in our Hawaiian shirts, up to Sunset Hill then back to Abondanza's for pizza and beverages. We will hold a raffle for the schwag, then.
Please pass the word and let all your friends know about the last ride.
