June 20th New Belguim Brewery Urban Assault Benefits Trips For Kids and CABA

Trips for kids is looking for volunteers to meet their committment for this new New Belgium Brewing Assault ride/festival. If you havene't heard about it - check it out at the website link below. If you are not going to ride in this event, please volunteer on behalf of Trips For Kids. They have done a lot for our club so we want to support them and help make this a very successful event. This will be a real fun time and it would be great to get New Belgium to come back year after year. Let's support the Assault  - ride in it or volunteer for it! Oh yea, did I mention the free beer.......

The request and info below comes from Harry Johnson from Trips For Kids.


Ok Folks... how about something VERY different on Father's Day, June 20th ???  New Belgium Brewery is sponsoring an "Urban Assault" in Charlotte with Trips for Kids as one of the recipients of the proceeds...  We need just 15 volunteers to sign up as Trips for Kids Volunteers in order to fulfill our obligation...  YOU DO NOT NEED TO RIDE .  As a volunteer, you will be stationed at one of the "checkpoints" of your choosing.. The Checkpoints will be places where the riders will stop and do silly things like a slip & slide and then get back on their bikes and head to the next checkpoint. You will need to be at the checkpoint for about 4 hours and then you're free to head to Marshall Park to enjoy the festivities ( i.e. COLD BEER)

Click Here to sign up ... and pass this along to your friends ( you know, friends helping friends...)

( be sure to enter as a Trips for Kids Volunteer on the line provided)  I have registered for the Smelly Cat Location. 

•  All volunteers will receive a t-shirt, food, drinks, and beer (21 and older). ( That would be Fat Tire Beer )...
•  All volunteers will be contacted the week of the event to confirm details.

This is the first year for Charlotte.  It is now in ~ 13 cities in the US and it keeps growing yearly.. 

Here's the skinny on the event itself...  for full info see:


The Urban Assault Ride™ is a truly unique cycling event...and quickly becoming one of the biggest in country! Here's how it works: You and your teammate will set out on a city-wide quest for 'checkpoints' on your favorite two-wheeled steeds.  At each checkpoint, you'll drop your bikes and complete a funky/adventurous obstacle course, then remount your bikes and hit the streets for more.
The goal is to complete all the checkpoints in the shortest amount of time. You choose your own route and checkpoint order. This means that the most clever are often the victors. Of course, it may also help if you can pull a mean big-wheel powerslide and fly across an inflatable slip-n-slide Wink
After your pedal-powered adventure, your team will cross the finish line and enter a massive celebration of bikes and beer. The after party is just as much fun as the ride itself, thanks to the craziest raffle prize contest you'll ever experience.
Pick a partner and we'll see you there!
