EPIC RIDES NEWS LETTER
We have never tried to share this letter on our site so here we go... :)
IN THIS ISSUE
A Heartfelt 24HOP Thank You
There was a lot of love in the air last weekend - both for bikes and one another - making the 16th Annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo presented by Tucson Medical Center another unforgettable escape from reality.
Now it's time to show some love for those who made the 24HOP happen; namely our cheerful, smiling volunteers, our highly engaged and enthusiastic sponsors and the hosts of our nomadic city in the desert, Willow Springs Ranch.
And Epic Rides especially wants to thank all of you, the mountain bike community of 4,000+ attendees for coming out and helping raise more than $25,000 for event beneficiaries including BAG IT! while contributing more than four tons of canned goods for the nearby Tri Community Food Bank located in Mammoth, AZ. That's tons of love, literally!
#24HOP Results and Photos
Chances are this eNews is being read from behind a desk back in the daily routine to help bankroll the next adventure (and all of life's responsibilities in-between).
For those who are still craving the magical Sonoran Desert sunsets, the relaxing smell of campfires and the sound of buzzing knobby tires, head over to the Results and Photos page to revel in the post event after glow.
A big "Thank you" to sharp-eye for hire New Mexico Photographer, Brian Leddy for capturing our good side in the photo pictorial at the results and photos page.
And, thanks to all that shared their experience by hashtagging images with #24HOP, it was certainly a well documented weekend.
Purchase Event Photos from Sportograf
Our tireless, hardworking snapshotters at Sportograf were combing the Sonoran Desert last weekend in search of the perfect shot of you. After several consecutive evenings of midnight toil, Sportograf (not to be confused with Steffi Graf) has all participant photos up for your perusal.
Capture that unforgettable moment of pain and/or pleasure by purchasing event photos here. Foto-Flats start at less than $30 per person and include personal rider photos PLUS 38 general event pictures ("impressions"). And for even more great shots and shotskis (you know who you are!) of the weekend, visit the Sportograf Facebook page.
Off-Road Series Unofficial Pre-Ride Weekend
Local knowledge - it's the difference between clearing a rocky technical section or walking it. Knowing what's around the next corner can be a huge advantage at the Whiskey Off-Road and the Grand Junction Off-Road presented by U.S. Bank.
Thankfully none of us have to be locals to know what's in store at the Whiskey and Grand because of Unofficial Pre-Ride Weekends. While it may be "unofficial" because Epic Rides does not provide insurance, ride support or maps, those who choose to do the pre-rides will officially be meeting new comrades, sharing laughs and getting all the local trail knowledge needed for an optimal event weekend.
See ya trailside,
The Crew at Epic Rides
