Share a ride, win some MTB Egypt stuff!

Win stuff from MTB Egypt if you share a ride to the weekly ride!
Win stuff from MTB Egypt if you share a ride to the weekly ride!

In the interest of making it possible for more riders (especially those who do not drive) to get to the trails on weekends to participate in our group rides, we will be giving an MTB Egypt mug or t-shirt (see above photo) to every rider who shares his/her car with a fellow rider for the Friday morning group rides. A few rules, though:

1. You must get there on time: be at the Wadi Entrance a few minutes before 7:00 a.m.

2. At least one of the riders must be joining the MTB Egypt group ride on that morning.

3, We will give out one prize every week, so whoever gets to the Wadi first gets it!

The nice thing about this little giveaway is that everybody wins! The rider who shares his/her car get’s MTB Egypt stuff, the rider who got a ride doesn’t miss out on the weekly ride, and we all win by putting fewer cars on the street and making our air (just a little bit) cleaner.

Here is how to do it: post in this forum thread if you need or can offer a ride!
