Bikerumor Schwag Toss Asheville – Recap, Photos and Video
A big thanks to everyone who came out for our second Bikerumor Schwag event.
140+ cyclists and friends braved the sub-50º weather for the Bikerumor Schwag Toss in Asheville last Saturday, and everyone walked away with a little something. In most cases, several somethings! We had a great time, and got in a solid ride at Bent Creek before the sun went down all too early. Papas & Beer never tasted so good that evening!
Since we couldn’t do a full ride, we added a few special challenges to the mix and made folks show their skills to get some of the biggest, baddest schwag. Check the video after the break for a quick blitz through our Slow Race and Circle of Death competitions!
…and this got us thinking, so look for more silly skills tests next for next year’s schwag toss/rides!
After checking everyone in (above), we got down to bizness:
Big thanks to Motion Makers for hosting the event in their parking lot and to all the local shops that came out and hung with us for the toss (even they got in on the action and walked away with some goodies!), and to all of the sponsors for donating so much killer schwag. As more than one person mentioned, we had more stuff to giveaway than most races!
Next time you’re in the market for some gear, just remember these guys…and that keeps them on board for future schwag rides:
We saved the best for last: Cane Creek’s Double Barrel shock with an insane retail value. For this, we had a best-of-three Slow Race, and here’s the winner, second from left, along with the Cane Creek guys and Tyler from Bikerumor (far right):
