This week I wanted to update you on 3 Special events that you might want to participate in over the next week.
SPECIAL EVENT! This Thursday Night.
The Cyclerides.com Bike Night at Tempe Marketplace is proud to host the FIRST PUBLIC VIEWING of the "KISS" Theme Bike built by Paul Yaffe's Bagger Nation.
This is a completely one off custom commissioned by the band KISS that
will join them on their final tour. Be the first to see this amazing
bike in person. The detail on this bike is incredible! Includes a light
show and plays KISS Greatest Hits. The engraving and use of lighted
paint is incredible! Stop by and see it from 5-9PM. Paul will be there
to answer your questions.
Only 2 Nights Left of this season! Some had commented that the venue
was too dark. That has all changed and you will be amazed to see the NEW Lighting! Stop by and check out the KISS bike Thursday night. Click Here to see the Concept Drawing of the Bike. Seeing the bike in person you can pick out all of the hidden features. LIVE MUSIC this week with crowd favorites "Broken Toys Band" and next week with "Skarlett Fever".
Saturday Morning, Nov. 10th
Flag Raising at Thunderbird Mountain.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote the article about what it took to get the
flag approved to be permanently planted on Thunderbird Mountain. Click
Here to Read that article. This Saturday is the day that it is finally
going to happen and you can still participate in this historic event.
The community is invited to participate in a human chain to carry
(hand-over-hand) the flag to the newly installed flag pole at Arrowhead
Point, where it will be permanently displayed as a point of pride for
residents and visitors alike. This event coincides with Veterans Day
weekend, and pays tribute to those who have served and are serving in
the US Armed Services. It will be followed by a flyover and lunch. Click Here
for current details on how to participate. Should be a very patriotic
event to watch the flag go up the mountain to permanently fly over the

several outdoor patios for you to hang out with your riding
It should be a very fun night and the weather is supposed to be great! At
this time it is a "One Time Event". However, if there is good interest
in it, we might make it a regular event starting the first of next
year. Ride by and join us on Wednesday, Nov. 14th to help us kick this
new bike night off. Click Here for more information and details on the Food and Drink specials. See ya there!
