100K SUMMER SHOP RIDE
SATURDAY, JULY 15, 2017
7:30 AM — 3:30 PM
START/END AT BICYCLE SPORT SHOP SOUTH LAMAR
RIDE TO BUILD A HELLUVA HAND.
Our summer ride, El Diablo Poker Dash & Bash, is back and hotter than ever. On Saturday, July 15, we'll head out on a poker ride from our Lamar store to three of our other locations for a roughly 62-mile loop around Austin. This is a FREE, unsupported, unmarked ride. We've provided a route option, but you can take any route you want as long as you collect a card from each shop. We’ll have free Real Ale beer and other beverages and lunch available for purchase post-ride.
The game is 5-card stud. You’ll collect cards by riding to the other stores to build a 5 card poker hand, starting with the first card from our Lamar store. You'll pick-up the second, third and fourth cards from our Bee Cave, Parmer, and Research stores during the ride. The ride will end back at Lamar where you'll pick-up the fifth card. The winning hand will receive a $250 gift card to Bicycle Sport Shop. Any tie breakers will be decided by pulling names from a hat.
Not interested in riding 60+ miles? No problem. You can still ride with us and participate in the post-ride party. Simply ride out and back to our newest store on Bee Cave.
This is a self-supported ride. There will be no route signage or SAG. The stores--Bee Cave, Parmer, and Research--will serve as rest stops. There will be ride leaders for various paces—advanced, intermediate and beginner—on the official route but no ride sweep. Bring your own flat repair gear, GPS map, hydration, and whatever else you need to fortify yourself. Bring your phone to call for back-up. Of course, there will be supplies available for purchase at all Bicycle Sport Shop locations.
