Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day; final “Tuesday Night Special” party

October 4, 2007

Hello friends,

This is a quick reminder about this coming weekend’s “Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day” and next Tuesday’s “Tuesday Night Special” rider appreciation night and sale.

The first event in our “Mocktoberfest” celebration will take place this Saturday. We will be commemorating “Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day” out at The Children’s Home in Winston-Salem, located at 1001 Reynolda Road from 11 am to 3 in the afternoon. This is a day that basically is set aside on the calendar to grab a kid and hit the trail! Originally this day was put together as a way to honor Jack Doub, a local young mountain biker who passed away suddenly several years ago. It has gained momentum and grown into a national observance and is a lot of fun! All are welcome, burgers and dogs will be provided compliments of Jay Doub. All we ask are that participating kids rsvp via info@mockorangebikes.com or by calling the shop at (336) 722-6678, as limited bikes and helmets will be available. Feel free, though, to bring your own and ride some bikes with the MOB crew! CycleSafe.org will be on hand with kids helmets for sale for $5. Of course, we could always use some volunteers, so if you’re interested in helping out let us know. Our normal mountain bike ride will leave the shop at 9:30, and will end at The Children’s Home for this event. We will not have a road ride this week. We’re looking forward to Saturday, so we will see you then!

“Mocktoberfest” continues this coming Tuesday with our season concluding “Tuesday Night Special.” The ride will be followed by a “Rider Appreciation Night” party on the porch of the MOB. Since our daylight hours have been lessening by the day, the ride will leave from the shop promptly at six o’clock. It is probably a good idea to bring a rear flashing light for this evening ride. As for the Rider Appreciation celebration, we will convene post-ride on the veranda at the MOB to enjoy each other’s company and the nice fall weather. As an added bonus, we will have some clothing super-specials going on. By that we mean that there will be some great deals on various articles of biking clothes. These deals are one time only and are “first come first serve” in nature. We will also provide some nice refreshments. We are really looking forward to this. We have had lots of fun with the Tuesday Night Special this year, and this will be a great way finish out the season!

All of our previous model year bikes are on major sale this month for “Mocktoberfest,” so if you are in need of some wheels this is a great time to take action.

See you soon!
