Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
4/14/10
 
Greetings Riders,
 
Well, Arizona Bikeweek 2010 is officially under way. The pre-rally dealership parties are history and riders are looking forward to the charity rides this week and the start of Cyclefest at Westworld. I was told that there are over 200 vendors that will be setting up this year. That should create some good eye candy and browsing before the concerts get underway each night. As usual, we will be doing the Wednesday Ride for Kids out of Buddy Stubbs. I think we have done this one for at least 7 years in a row now and it is always enjoyable. It is tough for me to turn down a good day ride out of town. Should be fun. Since I am always looking for longer rides, I might do the Firefighter Ride on Friday as well. That one takes you on a nice ride through Globe, Roosevelt Lake, Jake's Corner and back to Westworld. Saturday, I plan to join the huge Torch Ride out of Chester's to Westworld and the Make-A-Wish Ride on Sunday. Throw in hosting 3 Bike Nights in between and that should keep me busy for the week.
 
See all of the remaining Arizona Bikeweek activities on their event calendar at www.azbikeweek.com . My photos from the week so far can be found HERE. Rusty Childress has taken some excellent photos as usual, they can be seen HERE.
 
I mentioned the Make-A-Wish Ride above. This could very well be the best kept secret for a potentially big ride to ever hit the valley. I will tell you more about that in just a minute, but right now I would like to share with you a story that I did not know, and that is how Make-A-Wish got started. I'm sure most everyone has heard of the Make-A-Wish foundation, it is one of the most recognizable charities of all time. But what you might not know is that Make-A-Wish started with a DPS officer right here in Phoenix 30 years ago. Here is how the story goes.
 
The Make-A-Wish Foundation traces its beginning to one boy’s wish. In 1980, 7-year-old Chris Greicius was being treated for leukemia. Every day, he dreamed of becoming a police officer. U.S. Customs Officer Tommy Austin had befriended Chris and his mother, Linda Bergendahl-Pauling. He also promised Chris a ride in a police helicopter. When Chris’ health worsened, Austin contacted Ron Cox, an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer, and planned a day that would lift Chris’ spirits.

On April 29, 1980, Austin and a caring group of DPS personnel started Chris’ day with a tour of the city in a department helicopter, which also flew him to headquarters. Three cruisers and a motorcycle officer greeted him before his meeting with the DPS command staff. There, Chris was sworn in as the first honorary DPS patrolman in state history. But his experience didn’t stop there. Cox contacted John’s Uniforms, which agreed to make a custom-tailored DPS uniform for Chris. The store owner and two seamstresses worked through the night to finish it. The officers presented the official uniform to Chris on May 1 and arranged a motorcycle proficiency test so he could earn wings to pin on his uniform. Needless to say, Chris passed the test with flying colors on his battery-operated motorcycle.
 
On May 2, Chris was back in the hospital. He asked to arrange the room so he could always see his uniform, his motorcycle helmet and his “Smokey Bear”-style campaign hat. DPS motor officer Frank Shankwitz presented Chris with his motorcycle wings. He accepted them with a smile that lit up the room. The following day, Chris passed away, but not before seeing his dream come true and experiencing the hope, strength and joy that came from receiving his wish. See Chris Greicius picture in uniform.
 
They saw how happy Chris was knowing his wish came true, and that the wish seemed to take some of Chris and Linda's pain away – replacing the anguish with smiles and laughter. They thought that if one boy's wish could create such happiness, maybe they could do the same for other children. They presented the plan to the people who helped grant Chris' wish. Linda and others endorsed the plan. Thus, the Chris Greicius Make-A-Wish Memorial – which later became known as the Make-A-Wish Foundation – was born.
 
As most of you know that have followed my toy rides over the last 8 years, where we bus in 150-200 homeless kids and allow them to pick out any 3 gifts to take home with them from the thousands of toys that the riders drop off, I really have a heart for helping kids and have always had a silent admiration for the Make-A-Wish Foundation for what they do for terminally ill children. So when I was approached by Marcia Roeder of the Wish Riders to help get the word out about the upcoming Wish Riders Highway 101 Run, I was more than happy to join the cause and do what I could to let riders know about this amazing, one of a kind event that will be taking place this Sunday.
 
Apparently ABC Television feels the same about the Make-A-Wish Foundation because they are in the midst of shooting a one hour television show featuring the big hearts of motorcycle riders across the United States called The Wish Riders. Wish Riders is a one-hour television special taped in honor of the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s 30th anniversary. Wish Riders will follow an eclectic group of bikers on amazing journeys to where they'll help someone facing a tough road. Full of colorful personalities, loud bikes, and emotional, life-changing moments, the initial episode will be filmed in part at the world famous Arizona Bike Week, including filming of this ride from the ground and from the air.
 
Here is where the Wish Riders need your help. On Sunday, April 18th, the Wish Riders Highway 101 Run will begin from 9 area Harley-Davidson dealerships. The start times for each dealership will be timed so that all of the 9 rides will meet up at Westworld for Arizona Bikeweek. This will all be filmed for the TV show, including activities at Arizona Bikeweek throughout the week, which will be shown on ABC television in early summer. All rides leaving the dealerships will converge on Westworld at the same time. Don't miss the concert with Mogollon Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm in the Handlebar Saloon. Rumor has it that we could see some big surprises at this show. Mogollon Rocks!
 
Here are the details:
Time: On site registration is from 8 - 8:30am on Sunday, April 18th.
Location: Ride leaves from 9 local Harley Dealerships. Choose your start location when you register online.
Cost: $35 per rider, $20 per passenger.
Includes:
1.  Ride for Make-A-Wish to Arizona Bike Week at Westworld. 
2.  Limited edition pin and patch (limited to the first 1,000 registrants) Riders who register the morning of AZ Wish Ride, Sunday, April 18, 2010, will not receive a pin or patch. You must register online or in person at a dealership to reserve your pin and patch. Just click Join The Team.
3.  General Admission Ticket to Arizona Bike Week Cyclefest, April 18th, 2010.
Click Here for More Details and Online Registration.
 
I have set up a Cyclerides.com Fundraising page for this event, just like the dealerships are doing and would ask that if you have an interest in participating in this ride to sign up online as part of the Cyclerides.com Team. Let's make the Cyclerides.com family of riders the winning team. Click Here to Register Now and secure your pin and patch for this historic ride. Click Join The Team to register for ride.
 
As with a lot of charities, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is way down on donations this year. I know a lot of you reading this can't make the ride. But if you just want to donate, you can do that as well in the name of the Cyclerides Team. Click Here to Donate any amount.
 
Things are being added and changing daily with this ride. Regularly check the Cyclerides.com Facebook for updates.
 
I look forward to seeing you on the ride. I will be leaving from Arrowhead HD.

For those of you on the East side of town, you have not been forgotten. This is something that I have wanted to do for a few years, and it is finally happening. I will be starting a new bike night in Downtown Scottsdale on Wednesday nights. Many of you might remember a few years ago when Arizona Bike Week had the Tuesday night party on Craftsman Ct. in Downtown Scottsdale. We will be re-creating that great party by blocking off Craftsman Ct. between 3rd Ave. and 5th Ave., just West of Scottsdale Rd. each Wednesday night for motorcycle only parking. This is the same location as the Downtown Scottsdale Block Party.
 
Four bars and restaurants on this street will be participating in this event with Bike Night specials including:
Upper Deck Sports Grill,
Dos Gringos, 
Whitehouse and
Acme Bar & Grill. 
Three of these places have outdoor patios and are set up perfect for a bike night. Plenty of trees and a nice ambiance around. We will have LIVE Music, vendors, food specials, drink specials and plenty of plenty of fun as we head into riding season. 
 
The Weather is Supposed to be 83 degrees and sunny this Wednesday.
This would be the perfect time to give the Cyclerides.com Downtown Scottsdale Bike Night a try. Live Music!
 
Special Thanks to Hacienda Harley-Davidson in Scottsdale as our first sponsor of this event. Be sure to stop by their display to see the latest in Harley-Davidson and Custom motorcycles.
