This week seems exceptionally busy for bicycle events so we decided to give you an exact breakdown of everything that is going on.
What: Family Club Ride leaving from Mad Dog Cycles in Orem at 6pm.
Why: This ride happens every Monday at 6pm but, today is the Bajio ride. They will leave the Orem shop at 6pm and go to the Riverwoods Bajio for food. Kids eat free and adults get $2 off of their meals. This is a great event to get out and meet other cycling families. Not a family? That is ok to. Bring a date or come alone this ride is for everyone. BikeProvo was invited on this ride a little while ago and here is our report.
What: Night Ride leaving at 10pm from Joaquin Park at 400 E and 400 N. BRING LIGHTS.
Why: This is just a local event ride that has an open invitation to who ever wants to show up. This is not any sort of organized ride just people getting together to ride bicycles. This one will be a lot of fun. If you are in the area make sure to swing by.
What: Tour De France Party at Rowley Press starting at 7:30pm.
Why: This is an event that BikeProvo is putting on and will be a ton of fun. We will be getting pizza from Slab Pizza and watching the tour. At the begining there will be a little history about the Tour and the bicycle given by yours truly. There will be an entry fee $6 in advance (you can go to MadDog, Racers, or Bingham to pick up tickets), and $10 at the door. Here is the Facebook page.
What: Bicycle Swap Meet Spanish Fork 3057 E 1300 S. Starting at 6pm.
Why: Lots of restored bicycles for you to look at and buy if you want. Also you can bring your old stuff to show off (there will be a best in show awarded), or to sell.
What: MadDog Cycles Tour Viewing. Group ride at 7am to South Fork, Viewing and breakfast 8am
Why: There is going to be an awesome raffle that will include a brand new bicycle. This will be the last stage in the Tour that will determine the winner there will be a lot going on. Also this event is free.
Well, got all that out of the road. We hope this information will help you get out and meet new people, have some adventures, and ride you bicycle. As you can see the bicycle culture in the valley is really starting to come out of the wood works. Make sure to get out to at least some of these events to show your support of riding and the good life.
