Other than speculation about the whereabouts of Lance's TTX bike, yesterday's post mentioned some Team Two Wheel plans. Here are a few things we are working on.
Shop Rides - Starting on the First Friday of April, 4/3/09, we will be hosting a shop ride leaving from Two Wheel Transit at 1405 W. First Avenue in the Carnegie Square neighborhood of Downtown Spokane. We will be rolling out of the shop around 5.30 pm and doing a loop of about 15 - 20 miles. The ride will be easy-to-moderate pace with no-drops, meaning that you won't get ditched on the ride just because we go up a hill. Whether you've done group rides before or not, you are welcome to join us. We are hoping to talk the shop into offering some deals for our Shop Ride night, so stay posted. We are planning on shop rides each First Friday of the month through the riding season.
Pro Night - If you want to learn more about cycling there are lots of sources online these days, but not that many chances to get to talk to experts face-to-face. We are hoping to host some industry insiders and experts to offer us insight into training, technical issues and upcoming trends. We have tentatively scheduled our first Pro Night for XXXXXXXXX, at 6.30 pm [Oops. First date didn't work out. Back to the calendar for new dates]. Invitations to the speakers have been issued and we will give you more details as they get firmed up. Expect 60-90 minutes of interesting information and some bike gossip, so [soon we will be able to] mark your calendars.
Team Two Wheel T-shirts - Into production this week, Team Two Wheel t-shirts will be available soon. Featuring the team motto, "Fortitudine Vincimus -- By Endurance We Shall Conquer", these will be the hottest apres ride gear in Spokane this year. For most locals, these shirts will be moderately priced. For Rock Racing fans, we will also be offering a special edition t-shirt that has invisble gold dust sprinkled onto the shirt for an additional $100, so get your credit cards ready.
