    Urban Assault Ride - Denver and Ft. Collins

    Hello,

    I recently joined up on the street team for an awesome event called the New Belgium Urban Assault Ride. Part of me being on the street team is to make people aware of the event and help convince you and a friend to sign up. This is one of the coolest events around, a party on a bike basically. Check it out:

    • It is great to do with kids, sig others, or friends
    • Any bike will do just fine
    • It's more about having fun than going fast
    • Huge after party with lots of New Belgium beer
    • The obstacles are a blast - think tricycles and obstacle courses..
    • You will laugh so hard your stomach hurts


    And it is also a green event with a focus on sustainability
    • It's a fun and non-threatening way to learn your way around town so you can commute or run errands on your bike
    • You'll see how much easier it can be to grab your bike lock rather than your car keys


    This year there are 10 cities hosting the UAR, so there's bound to be one near you. So grab a friend and get ready for a heckuva good time on your bike.

    Tucson: April 19
    Nashville: May 3
    Seattle: May 17
    Portland: May 31
    Austin: June 28
    Fort Collins: July 19
    Denver: July 26
    St. Louis: August 16
    Chicago: September 20
    Minneapolis: September 27

    FAQs:

    How far is it? Ranges between 25 and 35 miles - depending on how well you know town. The family ride for kids 7-12 is about 15 miles.
    How long does it take? Most riders finish in 2 to 3 hours
    What does it take to be successful? Go to the website and download the checkpoints. You can plan your route before the ride. Do your homework
    Who can do it? Anyone 7 and older
    What kind of bike should I ride? Doesn't matter. Mountain, road, cruiser, tandem, tag along with your kid on it!

    I know some of you have done this before. If so, speak up, let everyone know what your experience was like. Show us some pics.

    When you register, please write in my name - Adam Emanoff - so they know that I'm doing my job - thanks!!
