Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
3/14/07
 
Greetings Riders,
 
Finally, we are having some awesome riding weather. I have no problem with 90 degrees and riding a motorcycle. You can even now head North to Sedona and Flagstaff to enjoy 70's and 80's riding weather. Nights are also great now. I was out last night at the Buffalo Wild Wings bike night in Mesa and riding home was nice. By the way, they have a great band there on Wednesday nights called Soul Catcher.
 
In the newsletter last week I talked about the Richard Petty Driving Experience that we had participated in. I had a number in there to contact Cindy Chisman to make reservations to do the ride along on April 14th when you are at PIR for the Hearts to Heroes ride. But, I had the wrong area code for her number. Even though, a lot of you have figured it out and have made reservations. If you would like to call her to reserve your spot that day, the correct number is 602-283-6358. 
 
This week I am going to bring you up to speed on the Cyclerides.com Hearts To Heroes ride scheduled for Saturday, April 14th. As a lot of you know, this will be the 3rd Hearts To Heroes event that we will have done. I don't want to call it an annual event because I would prefer that our troops would not be in harms way and my hope is that this would be the last one. But if that is not the case, and we need to do it again next year to continue to support our troops, I will be the first in line to do that. No matter what you think about this war, we need to distinguish "The War from the Warrior" and we CAN NOT turn our backs on these brave Men and Women that are proudly serving in our Armed Forces. We have to be vigilant in not letting the Hollywood types turn this into another Vietnam type reception for our troops. With your support of this event, our guys will see that at least 3000 motorcycle riders in Arizona are here to show them that we do appreciate their service.
 
The planning of this has been especially exciting for me. My personality is the type that I try to do the best I can at whatever it is that I do, and then top that effort the next time. After last year, I was concerned about what I could do top the Hearts To Heroes of 2006. So I let my mind wander and came up with a couple of ideas that would be off the charts exciting and that had never been done in our City. My goal was to narrow the gap between our troops on the other side of the world by bringing us together in one room so that we could really see, feel and hear their emotions, and they could see how much we appreciate them. So in my dreams I came up with the idea of doing a Live Satellite Interview with some of our troops in Iraq to bring everyone up close and personal.
 
After a few conversations with the Department of Defense to tell them our plan and show them your support of the last 2 years, they have embraced it 110% and the wheels are in motion to make this happen. Last week we had a 40 minute conference call with 10 different people scattered from Phoenix, Atlanta, Virginia and Iraq to put the plan in motion. They are so impressed with the hour long program we have presented which will take place at CCV, that they plan to air the last half hour LIVE on the Pentagon TV Channel world wide, which will include the Live Satellite portion of the event. So every military installation in the world would be able to see how Arizona supports our troops. As you can probably imagine, there are a lot of moving parts to putting something like this together, but everyone involved is completely sold out to make this happen the best it can be.
 
The theme of the program this year will be on the Soldier, the impact on the Families and what our support means to them. You might remember this past January I did a story on the deployment of 600 National Guardsmen from Arizona. There was an image that I will never forget that played over and over as the morning wore on. It was that of the Mother with the 2 kids pushing the stroller to the car as the bus drove away with the Father on board to be gone for 16 months. You could see in her eyes that their lives were about to change. And then there was that image of worry and distress on the face of a young man's Mother and Father as they give their Son one last hug and watch him step on board the bus. It was at that moment that I realized that the sacrifice of war goes many layers deep.
 
This year I will have a salute to our Veterans, videos, taped interview with a family, a Purple Heart recipient, a Soldier just back from Iraq and live interviews on stage. Of course the Live Satellite Interview from Iraq  and 3 live musical performances that will bring a tear to your eyes and leave you inspired.
 
After the program at CCV we will embark on the second part of my dream. I always thought it would be cool to see the track at Phoenix International Raceway filled with motorcycles with flags waving as we ride a complete lap around the track. After a meeting with PIR they agreed that would be a great idea and one that fits right in with their "Salute To Military Families" program that they are doing the following weekend at the Subway 500 NASCAR Race at PIR. So we will ride through the tunnel underneath the track, through the infield and enter the track on turn 2, take a complete lap and return back to the infield. Once we complete our lap we will park in the infield for a brief ceremony with 6 sky divers, each carrying a flag from a branch of service jumping onto the track. After we clear the track you will also be entertained by the Richard Petty NASCAR's roaring around the track. One of which you could be in. See last week's story about that.
 
There will be no food at PIR. The end party will be at the Westgate City Center next to the Cardinals Stadium at the Loop 101 and Glendale Ave. We will be in the events center area of Westgate next to the fountains where the entire street will be for motorcycle parking only. Westgate is setting up a stage where Rondavous will perform from 1pm - 3:30pm. Food and refreshments will be available at Westgate from vendors as well as the local restaurants on site.
