Sponsorships and Donations for NPPR rides!

NPPR can always use sponsors and donations.

We can use sponsors for t-shirts, and promo items. We will print these items with your company’s and our name on it, and give them out at our rides throughout the year.

We can also use items such as gift certificates, gift baskets, shirts, cups, bumper stickers or other promo items. We give out prizes, giveaways and goody bags on each ride, and can’t do this without your contributions and donations.

If you are interested in donating or sponsoring items, please email me michele@pinellaspubride.info

I will work with you to make sure we find the perfect way for you to advertise your business with us!

Thanks,

Michele

“Three Hour Tour” July’s Ride- Tarpon

NPPBRlogo-m

July’s Ride will be in the lovely Tarpon Springs, and we will be cruising through Sawgrass Tiki Bar, Tarpon Tavern, The Zone Lounge, Neptune Lounge, and The Eagles Nest.( Not in this order).

Theme is “Three Hour Tour”.. We want you to dress like you just stepped on the Love boat, or Fantasy Island, or that you were shipwrecked on Gilligan’s Island. This theme should be easy this time of year. Get to the dollar tree, and pick up luau supplies to decorate your bikes too.

Remember there are always prizes for participation and for dressing your bikes.

Meet up will be at 5:30 pm at Sawgrass Tiki Bar

There will be more ride information coming, so please keep track of this page, and/or the facebook page for frequent updates.

We look forward to seeing you and your friends.

Recap from the Tattooed Lady……

I had a great time last night! The weather really put a dampen on our number of riders last night, but the storm held out for us. Thanks to all of you that did show up and ride your bikes! Thanks to so many of you that were in costume. Craig and I really appreciate the groups participation.

Last night was our 1 year birthday of Pinellas Pub Ride. Craig and I started the group because we wanted a monthly pub ride in our area, Tarpon Springs, Palm Harbor/Ozona, and Dunedin. Our pilot ride had 12 riders (June 2011), and it seemed our group doubled with each ride. Normally we ride with 80+ riders and there are always new riders in the mix. I love the group because our riders are all different ages, and occupations. Everyone meshes well. Our experienced riders help with road crossings for the safety of newbie riders. What a great group we have grown into so far! We appreciate you coming out on the rides, telling your friends about us, and bringing new people.

Thanks to Craig, Lovey, Anthony.  Thanks to Marker 8 Tiki Bar, Original Pinehurst Pub, Rosie’s Tavern, and Eddie’s Bar and Grill.  Thanks to Cori with C Shaw Photography for documenting the evening.

Thanks to this years sponsors:

Last Minute Updates

Hello Riders! New and Old!!

I am looking forward to this weekend’s ride. The circus theme should bring us out some great costumes and hopefully lots of freaks! Remember that there are prizes and giveaways for participation with costumes, and games! We still have shirts, cups and coozies to give out. We will also have some NPPR stickers for you now, courtesy of our buddy Anthony who made this months posters . Please make sure you have invited your friends, all are welcome on our rides. This ride will mark one year since Craig and I started NPPR.

Happy Birthday to us!

Few notices, and reminders:

  • We DO ride in rain.. We will keep a close watch on the weather the day of the ride. The ride will be as scheduled, unless you see a cancellation from myself or Craig. We will post it here on our website, on our facebook page, and on our twitter broadcast. Make sure you are up to date and check the page.  As long as there isn’t a aweful storm or a lot of thunder and lightning, we will be riding!!  Be at Marker 8 at 5:30pm
  • Please remember, you must have light on the front and back of your bikes. This is the law! We do ride in the dark and its just not safe without them. You can buy them pretty cheap at Target or Walmart.
  • Cori, with C. Shaw Photography will be there for us again, documenting the night with photos, make sure you look for her and smile for the camera!
  • Due to lack of interest, we will not be holding the Hot Dog Eating Contest as planned, but we will have some Corn Hole for you, and a great relay race at the last stop!
  • Remember to pace yourselves! Enjoy yourselves, but keep in mind you do have to get back on that bike, and ride to another stop. Drink water in between.
  • RIDE WITH THE GROUP! If you don’t want to ride as a group, don’t come. We have a route planned, with your safety in mind.

This ride we will be touring through:   Eddies Bar and Grill, Rosie’s Tavern, Original Pinehurst Pub, and Marker 8 Tiki Bar .  We have some great returning stops, and two new stops this time. Thanks for welcoming our group.
