ODRAM (One Day Ride Across Michigan) is shaping up to be the best ever. It is scheduled for Saturday, August 18. Register here.
Need to raise funds for your ride account? The ODRAM organizational team has a few easy and exciting opportunities for you.
How about a very fashionable "JDRF" jersey bin? The bin is 6" X 4", made of thick flexible plastic with a secure press and seal closure. Perfect size to keep your phone, keys, ID, or snacks dry (or, think about it for boating, beach, or other places you want to keep your stuff dry/clean). Easily fits in one's jersey pocket. For each one you sell @ $5, half ($2.50) will go into your ride account. Sell 25 to your friends and you just covered a shift at Van Andel. Contact Tom (616-402-0097) or Chris (616-304-4250) with how many you want and we'll get them to you. Return the unsold bins by July 8 and we'll make them available for sale at the 5 JDRF national ride sites.
Jersey bins, not your thing - how about a new bike? We've partnered with Christian Family Services and Giant Bicycles to receive a Talon 29er Mtn bike to raffle (a $650 value). Raffle tickets can be purchased for $3 each or two for $5. For every two raffle tickets you sell, $2.50 will be deposited in your ride account. The winner may exchange the 29er for a different bike of the same value courtesy of Village Bike. Contact Tom or Chris to obtain tickets to sell. The raffle will begin at the end of June and run through August 30.
Want to be a part of ODRAM but not up to riding 152 miles or already have plans for August 18... how about an ODRAM jersey? The cost for one of these bad boys is a paltry $60 ($65 for XXL). Your order must be received by June 1 for it to be available on ride day. You can purchase online at the Bikereg website or contact Tom with your money and size desired and he'll take care of the rest.
Ride on, ride safe and have fun!
