Join us for the first annual TAWS Bike Garage/PRCA Poker Ride. Navigate your way through various checkpoints located on the sweet single track of Powell River, to collect your poker chips. Cash in the chips for your cards at the our wrap up BBQ at Lindsay Park for a chance to win some sweet prizes!
Register in the shop or online. $20 for 18 years or older, $10 for younger than 18. If you have a friend or family member who won’t be participating in the ride, but would like to join for the BBQ, a BBQ ticket can be bought for $10. Registration and BBQ tickets must be submitted and paid before 11:59 on Friday July 12th. Registration at TAWS, or email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Ride at your own pace. Checkpoints will be released at 9:00 am on July 14th. There will be 5 checkpoints, and 2 bonus checkpoints. You must collect tokens at the 5 regular checkpoints to enter your hand. If you hit the 2 bonus checkpoints, you get to draw an extra card for each. Choose your own route, ride at your own place to collect all the tokens, and redeem them for your poker hand at the wrap up BBQ supported by The Chopping Block at Lindsay Park later in the afternoon.
Riders can start to collect tokens from 9:00 am when the map is released. You must be at Lindsay Park between 4:00 and 5:00 to cash in your poker chips. After 5pm, we will have a BBQ and do prizing.
There will be a social group ride for those registered for the Poker ride leaving from Squirrel Crossing at 10:30. Feel free to join in and make it a social event!
All proceeds will be donated to the Powell River Cycling Association. This is the awesome crew that takes care of your insurance and maintains your trails. We encourage riders to become members of the cycling association
