This will become an annual summer series.
Each Saturday, during the Middle Of The Road ride (MOTR) there will be a designated sprint section – the winner of the sprint section will receive a small Flamingo token/prize and a prize from our sponsors www.gearmashers.com and www.mellowjohnnys.com and www.roku.com
The male and female collecting the most Flamingo prizes over the duration of the series will receive the prestigious Flamingo Cup and a Wahoo Bolt bike computer.
Routes will vary weekly as will sprint segments – see website for dates.
The route, sprint section, and sponsor prize will be posted the evening before each ride – before midnight.
The Flamingo Cup sprint occurs during the ride, but it is not necessary to compete to enjoy the ride. After the sprint, we will meet at a designated spot nearby, and ride back into Mellow Johnny’s together at a social pace. We promise to continue to make the MOTR fun for everyone involved.
The MOTR Ride is a social ride, open to anyone wanting to ride some miles, make friends and enjoy themselves. It’s a no-drop ride, however, you are expected to have the ability to ride 40-50 miles, sustain 17-20 mph, change your tire/Uber app on phone. Experience riding in groups and drafting is helpful.
