  1. As we get closer and closer to the start of our 2nd Annual National Mayor's Ride on May 2nd (~ 3 months away) from Washington DC, I am
    turning the notch up for the fires I burn even higher. As such then, here at 6 months away from our
    Grand Finale, the 2nd Annual Santa Cruz NBG Bike Fest, you will start seeing newsletters in your box
    on a weekly basis. This time however, I won't send the whole thing but an outline and enough copy to
    hopefully get your interest before I send you off to to read the rest. There is so much excitement in
    my mailbox on a daily basis, I just can't keep it all to myself any longer. Fasten your seat belts
    folks as we power full force into overdrive:

    S) Celebrity Parkinson's survivor, Jim Wetherell, who rides his Penninger trike all over CA to advance understanding about the disease he
    refuses to surrender to, started last week off with this great news:

    >Good morning Martin, I have gotten the ball rolling with the PD organizations, & support
    groups from SF to SC, & the >response has been great. They will be posting the event in their

    Jim, who will be riding the SF Bay Area cities of our relay ride, just also found his story in yet
    another newspaper, the Riverside Press Enterprise
    >. If you want to see this remarkable man's web site go to

    T) S&B Recumbents is using this year's raffle to introduce their
    all new Malibu 2 recumbent. Speedy and ultra light light, it will be the flagship prize for this
    year's drawing. And you can even take a chance on winning this bike right from the comfort of
    your computer screen via this page
    <>. And do bookmark this
    location as we add more exciting prizes to it in the months ahead.

    The reason this is even more important is that since we don't charge admission and the booth fees we
    collect barely pay just the insurance fee that is required of us, this is how we pay for the event.
    There is the expense for the park and all the associated permits, not to mention the cost of the
    sound system, the stage, security, the porta-potties, volunteer food and drink, the special bike
    parking area, signage, the children's play area, and etc, etc. Last year our raffle, put a pretty
    good dent in all of this, but we still find ourselves in significant debt. Since we now have the
    raffle on line, maybe you can help us throw a bigger amount at the monthly payments I am personally
    making right now. With a bank card or a credit card -- for as little as 5 bux!!
