    Dear geekhousebikes,

    I am attempting to recruit bikers for Beyond the Bike 2011. The event marks the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when co-founder Susan Retik’s husband was killed on the first plane to hit the World Trade Center. Beyond the Bike is a signature fundraising event for Beyond the 11th, a foundation dedicated to enabling the widows of Afghanistan to lift themselves out of poverty and oppression by teaching them entrepreneurial skills. Would you please consider writing a post on this event on your blog? Further information on Beyond the Bike and Beyond the 11th can be found at http://www.beyondthebike.kintera.org, http://www.beyondthe11th.org, and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6yScfIQIGk.

    Thank you for your time,
    Molly

    Good Evening,

    Cyclists from all over New England are gearing up to participate in The McCourt Foundation’s 5th annual Tour de South Shore bike ride to support Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis on Saturday, October 4.

    The ride, which comprises a 25-mile and 50-mile rain or shine tour along the scenic south shore, is in its fifth year running and will begin and end at Wompatuck State Park in Hingham, MA and will pass through the neighboring towns of Cohasset, Scituate and Norwell.

    All of the participants are encouraged to compete at their own pace, and there is no fundraising minimum required to enter. The 50-mile ride starts at 7:30 AM and the 25-mile ride starts at 8:30 AM.

    Following the race, all participants are encourage to attend the awards ceremony, which will feature live music, drinks and a catered lunch provided by Bertuccis.

    Would this great initiative be something for Geekhouse Bikes? I would be more than happy to connect you with some of this year’s riders to discuss their reasoning for getting involved; training and preparing for the event and how others from can get involved.

    I can be reached directly at derek@dpacommunications.com or (413) 244-8999. If you would like more information on the event, I can send over a press release at any time.

    Thank you,
    Derek Gould

    Hello,

    We’re working with the Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to launch an innovative new cycling program for Boston-area commuters called Park&Pedal.™ This first-of-it’s kind program provides a free network of parking lot hubs, conveniently located cycling distance from greater Boston’s employment centers. Would-be car commuters can park their cars for free, and pedal their bikes the rest of the way to work. The average round trip commute in the US is 24 miles, and many commuters are unable or unwilling to cycle that whole distance. Park&Pedal provides a manageable step toward bike commuting, and in addition to saving gas and avoiding last-mile traffic congestion, the program is also a great way to incorporate exercise into a daily routine.

    We would love for you to include this Event listing for our Park & Pedal Launch Event next Friday 7/31 on your website to invite Boston commuters and cyclists to this landmark event. We are hoping, that you could support us and post this event on your blog as well as on Social Media. This will be a historic event with lots of press and many exciting activities. Maybe you could even stop by and write about this program afterwards (we have free donuts! 😉 )

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    Thanks for supporting this great program and we hope to see you there!

    Have a great day,
    Conny Haas
