Meet the Mountain Bike Pioneers Bash
Date: February 8, 2015
We're inviting all our friends to the 17th annual "Meet the Mountain Biking Pioneers." This year’s fundraising party will support Trips For Kids and the Marin Museum of Bicycling (MMB), the new home of the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. We hope that you, your families, friends and co-workers will come out and enjoy the afternoon with us!
Come meet mountain bike pioneers such as Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze, Ned Overend, Tom Ritchey, Scot Nicol, Juli Furtado, Otis Guy, Charles Kelly, Ross Shafer, Steve Potts, Chris Chance, Mert Lawwill, Rick Sutton, Mark Slate, Maurice Tierney and Dave Garoutte.
Admission will be $5 for museum members ($7 on day of), and $10 for non-members ($12 on day of). Kids 12 and under are free. Pre-Event Admission is available online from the MMB website or at TFK's Re-Cyclery. Appetizers will be provided.
Long-time supporter Noah Berry, proprietor of the Broken Drum Brewery, has donated additional beer to the event that will be available for purchase. All proceeds go to support TFK and MMB.
Incredible bike-related prizes will also be raffled throughout the afternoon. The grand prize is a 2014 Jamis Dakota D29 Sport mountain bike (retail value $1050) donated by Jamis Bicycles but there will be tons of other great raffle prizes. A silent auction will include items such as a 2015 Bobcat Trail 7.4 mountain bike (retail value $750) donated by Marin Bikes and a set of wheels donated by Pacenti Cycle Design (retail value $599).
Sign up to help or just join the fun at these events.
I never thought in a million years I would ever go mountain biking. Most African-Americans in my community think you’re crazy to visit the snow. So just imagine them going mountain biking.
