From Spokes: Cervélo e-Ride Demo Event; plus Post Ride Store Event

Edit Fri 10/14: In addition to the ride, there will be a drawing at Spokes for a Thor Hushovd autographed world championship jersey!

Join us October 15th @ 2:00pm for snacks and refreshments at the SPOKES Bike Shop immediately after the Cervelo eRide and register to win a Thor Hushovd autographed jersey.

Riders that participate in the Cervelo eRide will have their name submitted 5 times for a chance to win the jersey, and those that drop by the shop around 2pm for snacks and refreshments can enter their name once.

Hmmmmm..., if I do both test rides, can I get 10 chances? I'm willing to work for this kind of swag!!!!

I told you that there is a lot going on in the cycling community! Spokes is bringing back the Cervélo e-Ride demo event this Saturday. As some of you disappointed readers may recall, the last time this event came to town, all of the bikes were reserved early and by the time the in-store reservations were added to those taken by the Cervélo rep, there was a waiting list for R-3's.  Mat hooked me up for that ride and I've got to say, the R-3 is an impressive bicycle! This go 'round, the Saturday date will make two rides possible if required to fill the demand. If the 11:00AM ride goes, the energetic rider could start off with the CARVE winter ride out east at 7:30, return in time to go by the Boathouse Club hydration station for refueling, then hop on an R-3 for the demo ride.

Here are the details from the Spokes website:

Cervelo e-Ride Returns to LR October 15 @ 9am
éRide 2011 is coming back to Little Rock, AR October 15th at 9am.
éRide, Cervélo’s national test ride program is coming back to Little Rock, AR on October 15th, brought to you by Spokes Little Rock. The demo will depart from 100 Riverfront Park, North Little Rock, 72114 (Locals know this as "The Sub") The ride will leave at 9:00 am, 25 miles, average speed approximately 17 mph. Pre-Registration is required. We will offer a 2nd ride at 11 am if need be to allow for all to participate.

If you’ve dreamed of riding a Cervélo, this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. éRide allows you to throw a leg over the same racing bikes ridden by the Garmin-Cervélo team and other top athletes.

The demo fleet will consist of 2011 Cervélo R3’s. The R3 has been the standard for lightweight, stiff, strong and comfortable frames. Its super-thin seatstays, Squoval tube shapes, and in-house developed layup were a major leap forward in frame design. This season, Cervélo again raised the bar with the introduction of BBright – a new bottom bracket standard that optimizes stiffness and weight of the frame and crankset as a system.
There is no charge to test ride, however you will need to complete a waiver and provide a photo ID and credit card while riding. Please remember to bring your pedals, shoes and helmet!
