9:25pm Sunday evening Mar 29th
49 returning Spoke n'Hot riders and 25 new Spokies have registered already! Based on the last three years that means that another 20 of you will register between now and our Registration Celebration, and then another 10 or so before we hit the road! I hope you're planning on coming out to our sponsor, Dutch Cycle's Registration Celebration on April 13. It's fun, we don't keep you out all night and you might win a cool gift or maybe a bike?
Ooops, where did that come from? Anyway, the little beauty above is the bike that Freddy has graciously donated. Not only does he sponsor Spoke n'Hot, host the Registration Celebration and give away a bike but he also rides with us every week! Very few organizations are lucky enough to have a sponsor like him and we are truly lucky. Back to the bike, if you already have a bike or maybe would like to upgrade then Freddy will work with you, If it's the bike for you then he will make sure that you get the right size. One way or another you will be smiling!
Just in case you're reading this and realize that you forgot to register? You still have 2:20 left to get two tickets for the draw. After midnight it's down to ONE! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
I apologize for the late notice but I was at a work conference this weekend. We now have 61 riders registered for Spoke n'Hot summer who all have 3 or 4 chances to win the bike at our Registration Celebration. If you can get registered before midnight then you'll still receive 3 tickets to the draw, after midnight it drops to two tickets.
By registering early you give yourself a reason to believe that winter will end, really, and the warm sun will shine once again!. To register tonight click HERE.
See you soon,
Mark and Theresa.
Since my last post another 18 of you have registered and now have 4 tickets each to win the bike or one of our other fabulous door prizes! The good news is that you still have until midnight tonight to get registered and get your 4 chances to win. Don't forget that if you win a door prize you will still be able to use the ticket for the Bike draw!
After midnight it's down to three tickets so get to it!
Well I had a look at the Registrations just now. Thirty of you now have four opportunities each to win a new bike courtesy of Freddy! It's always interesting to watch the Registration process speed up as the weeks progress and the weather improves. It's almost like the other eighty of you do not believe that the weather will get better! Take my word for it, the sun will shine, it will get warmer and we will be riding outside!
Speaking of which...how's the bike after the long winter? A bit creaky maybe? need a tune up? Well, if I were you I'd be heading over to Dutch today to get the bike in because it is going to get busy. Uncle Lawrence is ready to make your bike feel like a million bucks but get there sooner than later...
You still have until Monday to register for Spoke and get four chances to win the bike. I'll be posting a photo of it this week but first I have some more studying to do..this " Be a better husband 101" is killing me, it's really hard.....
I was visiting with Freddy at Dutch last week. It was a pretty quiet day in the store. Dad was up front, Roy and Shaun were building some very nice stainless work benches in the back.
Neither one of us are masters of long term planning, we both have a tendency to look at something and say " That's cool, let's try it". Luckily it seems to work out more often than not!
So, there we were, talking about Spoke 2015. Freddy is stoked to be returning as Ride Leader and is feeling pretty fit. We have some great ideas for the season which I'll let you know about as the weeks get warmer. But the one point I wanted to make today is that, once again, Freddy will be giving away a bike at the Celebration night! So mark April 13 in the calendar.
Now, it helps us enormously to have an idea of how many will be coming to the Celebration and it helps me when it comes to ordering jerseys( there's an eight week lead required) to know how many will be riding this year. So here's the incentive to Register now!
All who register between now and Mon 16 Mar will receive 4 tickets for the draw.
Register between Tues 17 Mar to Mon 23 Mar will receive 3 tickets for the draw.
Register between Tues 24 Mar to Mon 30 Mar will receive 2 tickets for the draw.
Any registrations after that will receive 1 ticket for the draw.
So, you know you want to ride with Spoke n'Hot, a new bike or a cool door prize is on the line, why are you still reading this? GO REGISTER!
See you soon,
Hi all, I've opened Registration for the 2015 Spoke n'Hot season. Our schedule will start on Mon 13 April with our opening night celebration at Dutch Cycle. It's a great way to renew old friendships, make new friends and have a glass of wine in the name of fitness!
REGISTER HERE FOR 2015
The rides will be held every Monday from 6:30-8 pm, excluding Statutory holidays, from April 13 to Aug 17th 2015. The fee is the same as last year, $160 for returning Spokies and $195 for new members.To register just click the link.
One of the topics we have been discussing is putting a race team together. I know we have some very good riders and I think it would be fun to compete. I'll talk more about this later. Right now, I just want to get Registration rolling and start thinking of warmer days ahead!
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
