1st Annual F-Town Gear Down
COPMOBA's Grand Valley Canyons Chapter along with the Endoholics Bike Club sponsored a POKER Ride at the Lunch Loops Area.
The Poker Ride was also sponsored by Rapid Creek Cycles, Bicycle Outfitters, DT Swiss, Mountain Khakis and LTR Sports. 12 Riders participated and rode on a loop that started and finished at Gunny Loop Parking Lot. There were 5 stage stops for cards to build your best poker hand. Participants had a chance to get extra cards at each stage by answering a trivia question, doing a stunt, singing a song or wearing some funny hats. The top hand won a wheel set from DT Swiss. Lots of fun and swag was given out. LTR gave out a riding kit, Rapid Creek had water bottles, T-shirts, gift certificates for tune ups and bike rentals, Mountain Khakis had gift cards, Bicycle Outfitters had stickers, T-shirts and donated $100 to Fruita Rotary Club.
Everybody got socks from F-Town GearDown, Family Health West gave out cloth grocery bags filled with swag, SingleTracks provided water bottles with a cool tire repair kit inside. Everybody walked away with something including beer tickets and raffle tickets for prizes at the Fest in Fruita. Raffled prizes where 5 Strider bikes, MRP Forks, MRP Chain Guards
At the Fest in Fruita's Civic Center Park COPMOBA set up a booth on both Friday and Saturday to sell gear and sign up new members.
