Love the Ride
Rocky Mountain Bikes want you to love the ride, and has teamed up with The South Island Mountain Bike Society to give you a Demo Day, Sunday, May 24th from 9:00 – 4:00 at Hartland Bike Park. Rocky will bring their fleet of demo bikes, and give current SIMBS members a chance to ride their newest rigs. Not a member? No problem! We’ll have a sign-up table there, or you can register online now.
In order to demo a bike you will need (besides a SIMBS membership):
- Photo ID
- Your pedals (Rocky will have a LIMITED supply)
Mark your calendars, and we look forward to seeing you there!
We know you all have your calendars marked to attend the SIMBS AGM on Thursday, Jan. 29. This is the best time to get caught up on what SIMBS has been doing, hear about plans going forward for 2015, and have your say. Many (or all) of you have been wondering where it’s being held this year, but we had to hold off a bit due to a big announcement. So without further ado…
We would like to welcome Vancouver Island Brewery on board as the Official Craft Beer Partner of SIMBS. Along with their generous support, they’ve also opened space in the brewery for the AGM.
The AGM kicks-off at 6:30, and will be located at the VIB brewery, 2330 Government Street. And yes, it’s all ages.
As well, the photo contest is now open for entries, although a little different this year. Upload your best photo of your favourite spot to ride on the South Island to Instagram, follow: @VIBrewery @SIMBSphoto, and hashtag your awesome photo #wevegotitgood #SIMBSmtb.
(Entries can also be submited to Facebook or Twitter. Just make sure you hashtag your photo).
Five finalists will be chosen by the SIMBS board and Vancouver Island Brewery. They will be professionally framed, and on display at the AGM for final voting by you!
The 2015 SIMBS AGM is coming up on Thursday, Jan. 29. It’s been an exciting year for us, so this is great opportunity to get caught up on what’s happened, hear about plans going forward for 2015 and have your say. We’re still finalizing the details for the venue, so stay tuned for an update with the location and schedule after the holidays.
The annual photo contest will also return. A few changes this year – details will be announced in the AGM update, so start thinking about your submission now!
