2nd Annual Trek Breast Cancer Awareness Ride!

If you did not already know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the 2nd year in a row, Trek is sponsoring a National Breast Cancer Awareness Ride on October 13th. Many Trek stores throughout the country are hosting this ride at the same time and will raise thousands of dollars to help find a cure. The Trek Store of Kansas City is hosting this ride for the 2nd year and invite all riders to join us; whether you have a mountain bike, hybrid, fixed gear, tri bike, road bike, recumbent, or even a unicycle, we want you on this ride. We are planning different routes to incorporate all types of riders and bikes. Men, women, and children are all encouraged to attend.There is a registration fee and all of the money goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You can still make a donation if you are unable to join us on the ride. To do so, register online and then send me a note/call the shop saying you will not make it to the ride. Trek has developed a website to help promote the ride and your participation which links directly to for online registration The first 25 pre-registered riders receive custom full-finger gloves on the day of the ride. All participants receive fun shwag (t-shirts, water bottles, etc.) and can also enter to win 2-custom Lime Bikes, 5 Pink Saris Bone Bike Racks, 2 Bissell Healthy Home Vacuums, 1 Bissell SpotBot Pet.
So, mark your calendars to participate in this fulfilling and exciting event. The fall colors will be blooming and the weather will be perfect for riding. We will have a post-ride party in the shop afterwards with coffee and pastries, as well as give-a-ways and raffles. Feel free to email me back with any questions you have.

There's more....

Here are a few more pictures from our day with the Discovery Channel Cycling Team.

Just in case you didn't believe they were here.

Here's Popo razing Noval about his little doll...

Johny Devine taking pictures of himself and Popo...

Jessica from the Trek Store of St. Louis looks a little nervous chatting with one of the greatest minds in cycling history, Johan Bruyneel.

Alberto, George, Johan, and Levi are welcomed by massive applause as they sign some jersey's.

Welcome George Hincapie. Can you believe that he will be riding for T-Mobile next season?

It was an honor to have the Discovery Channel Cycling Team here at the Trek Store of Kansas City. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved. Again I want to thank everyone who came to share the day with us.

WOW! What a day.

It's one thing to say that the Discovery Channel Cycling Team is coming to your store. It's another to actually have them walk in. After all the preperation that we did I was still a little stunned when they walked in. I want to thank everyone that came out to the store. It was an incredible day. One that will be remembered for a long time.

Oh wait, that's not Aberto, George, Johan, or Levi.....

Ahh, There they are... the rest of the team?

They were there also. Did I mention the number of people that came to the store. I was blown away. We had customers at the store before I got there for work, and I'm an early riser.

Again I want to thank everyone that came out.
