Join your friends at this annual event hosted by UAW Local 2209! Whether you ride your own bike or rent a seat on a pedal pub, you will be helping to raise funds for Fort Wayne Trails! This event is coming back in 2023 and will take place at Pedal City on June 17th.
“It is our 8th year!! In the Poker world there is a hand called Aces and Eights – Dead Man’s Hand and the Wild West history of that hand is our theme this year! So, get your spurs on and prepare to have a rootin’ tootin’ good time riding with friends new and old around Fort Wayne while raising money for the Fort Wayne Trails! in 2022 we were able to raise over $11,000 with sponsorships, registrations, donations, and raffles! Our goal, as always is to raise more than the year before! If you, your business, or your employer is interested in being a part of this amazing event with a sponsorship, a raffle, or prize donation or even getting a team together, please contact me (Amy Houston) at 260-433-0915 or [email protected] for more information!
Ride your bike to raise money for the Fort Wayne Trails! Start and end at Pedal City. Upon arrival, you will be given your event t-shirt and a list of downtown bars & restaurants to go visit (maybe grab a drink or a snack!), get your card marked at each stop and once you have visited 5, return to Pedal City to draw your Poker Hand. The best Poker Hand of the day will win an amazing prize. The next 2 top hands will also get great prizes. We will have a hot dog bar after the ride at Pedal City for you to enjoy while raffles are drawn (Cool items donated by S&V Liquors and our other sponsors) and random prizes are given out. Last year we gave prizes for the Ugliest Bike, Oldest Bike, and Prettiest Bike. Who knows what they will be this year! Come out and enjoy downtown Fort Wayne with your friends (this is a 21 and older event) and maybe win some cool prizes! Event Registration includes a Made in the USA event t-shirt, 1 poker hand, and a hot dog bar. After June 6, you can still register, but there will be no event t-shirts guaranteed. Still tons of fun prizes to win and hot dogs to eat tho! We will also do a packet pickup the evening before the event if you would like to swing by and pick up your shirt. We will email all registrants a week before the event with more details!”
