Chino, CA – October 5, 2014 – Ruben S. Ayala Park
The 2nd annual Butts On Bikes Inland Empire picnic was the main event to be at on a gorgeous Sunday morning of October 5, 2014 at Ruben S. Ayala Park in the beautiful city of Chino, CA. There was anticipation building for the week leading up to the event, as more than 90 cycling members took part in this yearly gathering of friends and family who share a passion of cycling at all levels. Prior to the BoBIE’s 12-mile picnic ride, one thing was certain – everyone was looking forward to a great time as volunteers set up the event area for tables, food, drinks, games, photos, including a group photo shot of the cycling club donning their BoBIE gear. Last but not least we provided the GREAT MUSIC to make this event come to life!!! Some of the BoBIE members really loved the set-up and participated with the DJs to help make this event even more live.
A special shout out goes out to the BoBIE leadership team, led by founders Keith and Janet Berg who set up the event. Thanks to BoBIE member Kathy Wilkinson for great MC work, and Russell Tumang for assistance with the music tracks. Thanks to all the volunteers who contributed as well, including Rick David for the great artwork on the picnic flyer, and Alan Aledia, Leo Espino, and Chris Manuit for their great eye on taking professional quality photographs. We can’t wait to do this again next year!
You can read many of the positive comments of the BoBIE cycling members, such as the one below on the BoBIE meetup page at www.meetup.com.
This is one of the best picnics I’ve ever been to. Thanks to Janet and Keith for all their hard work. Without their leadership this group would not be the same. I was also glad to see that all the ride leaders were personally recognized. What a fun crew, and great looking people on the photos. Thanks to Russell for the great music, thanks to Marissa for the table arrangements and thanks to Kathy for emceeing. I know that job is harder than it looks. Take care everybody and we’ll see you on the road. Thanks again Steve.
