Remember how summer felt when you were a kid? If you are anything like me you spent summer playing outside all day with your friends. Maybe ride bikes ride in the morning at the backyard bmx track, hit a neighborhood kick ball game in the afternoon, throw some frisbee at sunset then hangout with your friends in the evening.
There is going to be a good ride happening next Sunday morning in Black Mountain Area of Pisgah Forest. At 2:00 p.m. we will be heading over to Pisgah Brewing Company for some field games and grillin'. Pisgah Brewing Company has been gracious enough to allow us to throw a little funraiser next Sunday at the Brewery. It's a private shindig for the Brew Crew and friends so bring the kids, the dogs, all your friends and support a good cause while you have a good time.
What the cause you ask? SSWC09 or the 2009 Single Speed World Championships in Durango CO. This may be the largest gathering of Single Speed Mountain Bikers ever and where there are single speeders there are good times. As a mountain bike team consisting of a motley crew of bike shop employees, small time coffee roaster, a local clothing company owner, a Realtor, a single speed component company owner and an out of work science teacher . None of these jobs seem to be in a field that is thriving and with the current economic climate we are running a little low on race funds. So, in order to make it out to the race and win the ss world championship for Asheville we need to raise a few bucks by doing what we do best, showing people a good time.
We will kick things off with some bike race / bike ride in the Black Mountain area around 11:30. The location will be announced at a later date and as always this will be more of a ride than a race but of course feel free to go fast. After working up a thirst we will descend into Pisgah Brewing Company for tasty beers, field games, music, a variety of baked goods, grilled meat products and veggie-meat products.
The Brew Crew will be selling a variety of hotdogs and baked goods to raise some money for the long haul to Durango, CO. We will also have a silent auction featuring items from our wonderful sponsors and other random goodies we have laying around. So come on out and play with us on Sunday August 30th and celebrate summer before it's gone.
Field Day Schedule Coming Soon.
