Well, as most of you know by now, the last Cyclerides.com Westgate Bike
Night presented by Arrowhead Harley-Davidson and Ridenow Powersports was last
Thursday night. That night wrapped up the 24th bike night for 2012
and the 10th night for the Fall season. I would like to thank everyone who
attended for making this the biggest bike night in the Southwest and to the
sponsors and vendors for their support who help make it happen. I have heard
that you enjoyed the high quality bands that we had every week and will strive
to keep up the quality of entertainment at the event. We will start up again in
March of 2013. Since we share this venue with the Phoenix Coyotes, exact dates
will be determined by what happens with the NHL lockout. If it works out, I plan
to start it a little earlier in March next season. Thanks Again, I appreciate
your support and look forward to seeing you every Thursday night. Click Here for pictures from the last couple of
With Bike Night ending, that means that the Cyclerides.com Toys To Kids event
right around the corner and it is evolving by the day right now. As
I announced last week, we have added special guests Tim and
Willy this year to open the show with a
performance and they are even going to “Write a song about it”. We are all
looking forward to that. We will still be at Westgate, but I have moved the
exact location of the Toy Event to the water plaza area between the Yardhouse
and the Theater, where Westgate has just put up a giant Christmas tree. This will
be much better ambiance and more comfortable for the 120 underprivileged kids
from the Children First Academy in downtown Phoenix who will have brand new
fake grass to sit on and a great
viewing experience for the riders who will be bringing gifts and attending the
show. Click Here for pictures of the
We are also setting up a giant stage for our world class
to perform on. Craig is an outstanding Vegas style
performer that you will not want to miss. He will also be there early to perform
tricks throughout the crowd. And last but not least, Westgate has installed snow
machines that will be turned on at the completion of the show. The kids will
really get a kick out of this. I was at the tree lighting at Westgate last night
with 2000 other people and watched as the crowd really enjoyed it.
Bring the whole family to enjoy this event on Saturday, December 1st to make
sure that we have enough toys for these kids so that they can each pick any 3
toys out of the stack to take home with them and to share one with a sibling or
friend. A $9.99 breakfast at Saddle Ranch starts at 9AM for those early birds
with the kids arriving at 10 AM and the show starting at 10:45 AM. All we ask is
that you bring at least one toy per person for ages 6-12 years old. See details
