On behalf of the Bicycle Longmont Board I have to say we packed the place! Way to go Longmont. It was an excellent turnout. You guys filled the Dickens out of the Dickens. And, what a great time. The crowd, the movie, all of it great friends and a lot of good cheer.
As you can tell we had a great time.
Quickly - I need to say one thing - THANK YOU MIKE DION! - We were given the incredible surprise tonight when Mike Dion the filmmaker of Ride the Divide showed up out of the blue to answer questions. It was a great time, made even greater by having him there. So - Mike - Thank you!
Tomorrow night will be equally as great.
If you liked Ride the DIvide come and check out BIcycle Dreams. It's similar to Ride the Divide in that you can see extraordinary human beings accomplish amazing feats. It's truly a movie that will stick with you.
If you haven't gotten tickets, tickets will be $15 at the door. However, know that there will be a panel discussion and an after party at Oskar Blues Brewery at Pike and Sunset. I think you'll get your $15 worth, really.
Having said that.... We will drop a bunch more Bicycle Dreams tickets off at Crackpots tomorrow morning. These tickets will remain $10. It's Friday and we need easy math on Fridays. So that means you get a deal so - ya' know - I wouldn't complain.
A little bit about the Panel Our panel will include Rick Boethling - Race Across America - Race Director, Terri Gooch & Tim Case both have competed in Multiple RAAM rides. We will also feature Ryan Van Duzer. Ryan has ridden across the USA a number of times and will share his insights into RAAM as well.
Also if you need to hedge your bet on the cruiser bike - we'll be selling tickets tomorrow night too at Vance Brand.
We hope to see you there.
Allrighty, it's late and time to refuel for tomorrow. S
Sleep well St. Vrain Valley!
