Times Call Article - G'Knight Ride, too


There is a great article in the Times Call. The article covers the excellent turn out last night.

I hope everyone had a good time. I wanted to take a minute and give a shameless plug to the G'Knight Ride.

What are you doing on June 18th? Those of you with fathers in the household, what are you doing for Dad on Fathers Day weekend? Another tie? Grilling on the patio? Nascar?

Might I suggest - Bikes, Live Music and Beer? Trifecta - I think so.

Bicycle Longmont and Oskar Blues present the first annual G'Knight Ride. There will be two routes that will begin and end in Prospect. The first is a short 3 mile loop, ideal for the younger riders, relatively flat, and scenic. The longer route is 10 miles and will loop around South Longmont to the Historic Eastside Neighborhood, Downtown and to the Westside neighborhood, then back to Prospect.

We will have family friendly events between 4pm & 6pm. The first waves of the cruiser ride will depart at 6pm. The bands will hit the stage at 7:30pm and continue until 11p. Oskar Blues will open the beer garden around 6:30pm. Food will be available at Prospect businesses and the Denver/Boulder Gourmet Trucks will be there, too.

How much does it cost? Well, comparable rides require upwards to a $35 for registration. We're not. Our registration is $10 for individuals and $25 for families. The day of the event these prices will increase.

Learn more by going to the G'Knight Ride website. Or you can go directly to to register.

Have you already registered? Great! Tell a friend!

Proceeds from the G'Knight Ride will go to benefit the programs of Bicycle Longmont.
