6 Days Until The NIght Ride - Volunteers Needed

Well folks we only have 6 more days before Jacksonville gets all funked 70's style up with its first bicycle festival, The Night Ride. And can you bet your last tube it's going to be some big time fun. I've seen a few pieces of what our local artists have created for The Bike Art Show and am in awe of what I have already seen. Make sure you check it out at Flux Gallery. I have also heard about few of the costumes and they sound down right funktastic. I have even heard of a possible appearance by Dirk Diggler. There is going to be some stiff competition for those Burro Bags. We have confirmations from cyclists as far way as Tallahassee, Orlando, and Gainesville not to mention the hoards of wonderful Jax cyclists we are expecting for the ride.

If you have not done so, visit The Night Ride site for the details of what is happening where and when.

I do have admit I am tired. It has been a long and exhausting (but fun) three months since I first pitched the idea of a free festival to celebrate the bicycle and its riders. I am now asking some of you fellow Bike Jax'ers for some help during the day of the festival. Just an hour or two of your time is all that is required and most of it can be done while you are out enjoying the different festival happenings. None it requires anything in the way of labor or heavy lifting.

I need a couple of people to split time and help out at Fuel (festival central)
I need a couple of people to hawk raffle tickets throughout the day. (Can be done while out enjoying the fest.)
I am going to need several ride guides for The Night Ride itself.
I am in need of a couple of people with digital video cameras that would be willing to document the event in all of it's glory.

If you can help out email me at [email protected]

Let's make this a party Jacksonville won't soon forget. That is until next years The Night Ride 2.0
