Roland Earns the Facebook Free Registration on 10/3

Roland V, a fan of Bike the Coast - Taste the Coast on Facebook, earned free registration for his whole family on the 7/15 mile bicycle routes as part of a Facebook promotion during the weekend of October 1 and 2.  Fans who provided links on how they helped to promote Bike the Coast - Taste the Coast were eligible for free registration, and Roland was selected as the weekend winner.  Roland, his wife, his 7 year old son and his 3 year old daughter (in a bicycle child seat) will be riding their choice of 7 or 15 miles on November 6, 2010.  Bike the Coast - Taste the Coast will be running the same promotion on Facebook every weekend until October 31, 2010.

“I’m a regular half and full century bike rider and Bike the Coast looks like a great ride for both beginners and advanced riders. My entire family will ride. My 7 year old son is very excited about getting a medal for finishing his first organized bike ride!” said Roland.

Cyclists in the inaugural Bike the Coast – Taste the Coast event can register as a group with their family and friends (total of five) to participate in the seven or 15-mile route and save up to 53 percent off the regular price!
