We Gonna Party:  Friday August 7th at the Hunt Valley Church you are invited to come out to cheer on the arrival of national and local cyclists, enjoy some music, food, and generally have some fun. Bring the family, stop in with your friends. The more the merrier! More details as the event gets closer. Stay tuned…

Want To Help A Biker?:  We need about 14 homes willing to provide some good old fashioned hospitality to the bikers. They will need lodging, food, and possibly some local transportation from Friday August 7th through Sunday August 9th.

** UPDATE 7.5.09 **

1) The actual number of riders in need of lodging is 19!! To those of you already extending some Baltimore love, THANK YOU! If you’re still considering it…there are definitely riders who would appreciate some good old fashioned hospitality!! Please contact me to get connected…

2) We are also looking for some event partners to assist in the Welcome Party at Hunt Valley Church mentioned above. Is your church, organization, company,co-workers, small group, neighborhood friends…you personally…your family…hey, I don’t care if it’s your chess club… are you interested in being some helping hands and feet? Like to cook and think you may be able to provide some food? Have some dead presidents to help with financial sponsorship? If you have any interest in helping with this event in any way, please contact me.

** UPDATE 7.15.09 **

1) There are still about 10 riders that need some Charm City…um…charm. Good news = that means about half of them are already in good hands. Opportunity = half need a place to crash after pedaling across the good ol’  U.S. of A.

2) We are still in need of partnerships of all kinds for the Welcome Party.

If you are interested in more information about any of these opportunities please contact me.

Stay tuned… and as always…
