REI Grand Opening Rides and Events
The Tarheel Trailblazers and Dirt Divas have been invited to a Community Bike Ride hosted by REI, the outdoor clothing and gear company, to celebrate the Grand Opening of their first store in the Charlotte area, at the Carolina Place Mall.

Morning Community Bike Ride
Saturday August 5, Morning 7:30am – 9:30am (Ride starts at 8am)
Meeting Place: Pineville REI, located at the Carolina Place Mall (near Dillards)

Summary: This event is a community ride to be held Saturday morning Aug. 5th of the Grand Opening Weekend. Bring your mountain bike; the ride will be a modified urban assault, going from the REI Pineville store to McMullen Creek Greenway and back (around 9 miles). REI has invited the Tarheel Trailblazers, Dirt Divas and Trips for Kids (who agreed to change their scheduled ride for this event). All participants meeting at Pineville REI site at 7:30am, ready to ride at 8am, ending the ride at 9:30am. Will do “Big Check” presentation upon arrival at new Pineville store, just before opening (9:45am).

Sunday Aug. 6th from 12 - 3pm, the Dirt Divas and Tarheel Trailblazers will have an information booth on site at the upper level of the REI store to promote both clubs. (FYI -- just 2 weeks ago, 34 volunteers from REI and 11 Trailblazers descended upon the trails at the USNWC (Catawba) to re-route a drop onto the "Trail of Joy" and to work on a new connector to link the south side of the park with the 2-miles of sweet single track on the north side.
A big thank you to the REI crew and to the Trailblazer faithful, who gave up their Sunday afternoon and flocked to the park on (very) short notice!)
