Reston Century on August 23 and looking for "ride ambassadors"


I returned from RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa see convinced that I need to reach out to people participating in rides like the Reston Century. On RAGBRAI I saw an increase in recumbents, trikes, and crank forward bikes from last year. As usual I encountered lots of questions from other riders about the Barcroft Columbia I rode with my wife, Ces, and the Rans Dynamik that I rode a couple of days.

So I've decided to make an offer to our customers who have purchased recumbents, trikes, or crank forward bikes from bikes@vienna. Register and ride in the Reston Century (routes of 34, 65, and 103 miles) as an ambassador for bikes@vienna and I'll reimburse you $20 towards your registration for the Century, supply a bikes@vienna shirt for you to wear on the Century and keep, and provide promotional materials for you to distribute. Your job is to enjoy the ride, smile as you ride in comfort, and tell other riders about your bike or trike.

Interested? Go to You'll find information on the event and how to register. If you register before August 12th the cost is $35. Let me know by email that you have registered for the Century and what size shirt you wear. On Sunday, August 23rd I'll be in the bikes@vienna booth at Reston Town Center waiting to hand you a packet that will include $20, a bikes@vienna shirt, and promotional materials.

This offer is to the first 20 customers with a recumbent, trike, or crank forward purchased at bikes@vienna who register and inform me of their interest to serve as a "ride ambassador". I look forward to hearing from you.
