I hope everyone is enjoying this Chamber of Commerce riding weather we are
having right now. It just doesn’t get much better than this. Last
week in the newsletter I mentioned the ride up South Mountain as a possible ride
getaway here in town. I got so much response on that from people who had also
forgotten about it, that I wanted to mention it again in case you didn’t see it
last week. This is a nice little destination with a fantastic view at the top.
Here to Read.
It is hard to believe that we are already on the doorstep of November 1st.
Which means only 55 days till Christmas. Where has this year gone?
I was just getting good at putting 2013 on my checks! With the calendar turning
to November it also means that the Cyclerides.com Westgate Bike Night presented
by Arrowhead HD and Ridenow Powersports is also about to come to an end. There
are only 3 nights left to the Fall season. This Thursday night we will be one
street to the North due to the Coyotes game. The last 2 nights, November 7th and
14th we will be in the normal location. November 7th will be NASCAR night at
Bike Night. There will be a NASCAR on display as well as 7 of the Next drivers
there to sign autographs in center court. 74th Street Band will be our Live
Music for the evening. Ride in and enjoy our last 2 nights of the season.
Many of you have inquired about the Cyclerides.com Toys To Kids event for
this year. It will be on Saturday, December 7th. I have 120
underprivileged and homeless kids from Children First Academy scheduled to
attend the event. It will be held once again in the fountain park area at
Westgate between the Theaters and Yardhouse. This is a great place for this
event as there is a huge Christmas tree in the center with grass for the kids to
sit on. Times will be announced soon, but will be around 10:30-11;00 AM and will
last for one hour. Put it on your calendar.
I haven’t had a new Cyclerides.com T-Shirt for probably the last 3 or 4
years. Mostly because I really wasn’t inspired by anything new to
put on them. That all changed on this last ride we took back East starting in
Nashville, TN. Those of you that take multi-day rides know that pretty much all
you want to do is lose yourself in the fact that you have nothing else to do for
that period of time, other than enjoy the opportunity to see the country from
the seat of a motorcycle. I know for me, that when I park that bike after an
8-10 hour day, I already can’t wait for the next morning to get on and do it all
over again, and again, and again.
After about the 3rd day on this trip, I realized that I was on an infinite
loop that I could do for a long time. Riding along the Blue Ridge
Parkway, reflecting on our trip so far, I came up with these words for a T-Shirt
to celebrate what a good ride is. “Ride – Eat – Sleep –
Repeat”. In my opinion, those words are the epitome of what a good
multi-day ride is. You get on your bike and enjoy the opportunity to see this
beautiful country, as much as you can, in the best way possible. So I took that
slogan and emblazoned it on the front of the shirt, with the Cyclerides.com logo
on the back. Click Here to View.
There are Short-Sleeved
available. The short sleeves are a higher quality, great fitting
60/40 shirt and the long sleeves are a 100% cotton Gilden. I am selling them
online for $15 Short and $18 Long. Only $5 shipping for up to 2 shirts. You can
also get them at the Cyclerides.com Westgate Bike Night at the Big Biker Babes
tent for the next 3 weeks. These would also make a great Christmas gift for the
avid rider in your family. Click Here to order online.
There is limited quantity.
