Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
9/12/18

Greetings Riders,

If you missed the newsletter last week with photos of the Pacific Coast Highway from the ocean side. Click Here to View. These are excellent photos of the PCH from a vantage point that you have probably never seen.


After several years in the making to find a venue in the East Valley, the Cyclerides.com Bike Night at Tempe Marketplace is finally kicking off on Thursday, September 13th and ends on November 15th. Event time is 5-9 PM. Come early to get your parking spot. This is a fantastic venue conveniently located at the Loop 101 & 202. We will utilize the street and courtyard area in the center of Tempe Marketplace and will be able to cruise through and park our motorcycles on the street that is normally closed to traffic. There is a built in stage, tables, umbrellas and misters in the area that will keep you cool.

We will have Live Music every week from 6-9 PM and will open the first bike night with the 74th Street Band on September 13th. There will be Vendors as well as Food and Drink specials throughout the complex.
Go to the Desert Wind Booth for VIP tickets to the Dave and Busters great 2nd story patio that overlooks the road and band. You will be able to hang out in and watch the bikes cruise through. California Pizza Kitchen is on the ground level with an outdoor patio and Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que with a large outdoor patio where all the bikes exit, as well as many other places throughout the district. Click Here for all of the restaurant specials throughout the complex.

I am really excited to bring a Cyclerides.com Bike Night to the East Valley in such a great location. This will give everyone on the East side a good reason to get on their motorcycles, and head out to a great venue to have dinner with your riding buddies and watch the motorcycles cruise by. Should be a great time! Come out to Tempe Marketplace on Thursday, September 13th to help us kick it off. Thanks to Tempe Marketplace for allowing us to do this and to our presenting sponsors: Desert Wind Harley-Davidson, Ridenow Powersports Chandler, Indian Motorcycle Chandler and Nash Powersports, along with our associate sponsor Law Tigers who help make this happen.

Live Music for September will include: 74th St. Band, Backstage Crew September 20th and Skarlett Fever on September 27th. I look forward to a great turnout for opening night on Thursday, September 13th for the inaugural Cyclerides.com Bike Night at Tempe Marketplace. Please forward this to your riding buddies in the East Valley. See you there!

Update:
The opening night of the Cyclerides.com Bike Night at Westgate Entertainment District was fantastic!! Thanks to all who came out in the heat to kick off the season. I was truly amazed by the huge crowd for opening night. Hopefully the East Side riders will embrace our Cyclerides.com Bike Night Tempe Marketplace just the same. For those of you that attended the opening night at Westgate and those that didn't, below are some photos that I took from the night. See if you can find your picture or your bike in the crowd. There was a professional photographer shooting video that night. I will include that in the newsletter next week. Thanks again for helping us kick it off in such a great way!
