Dec 8 - Inaugural SDMBA-PRO Photo Contest
The Progressive Riders Organization (PRO)is a new organization within the San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA) and SDMBA-PRO’s main purpose is to advocate for progressive riding opportunities (downhill/freeride/etc.) in and around San Diego County. We want what you want, a bike park and more areas for Progressive Mountain biking!
Join SDMBA Progressive Riding Organization (SDMBA-PRO) and Cal Coast Bicycles for an evening of free pizza, beer (donated by Lagunitas Brewing), and adrenaline-inducing memories at 7:00pm on Thursday, December 8th, 2011 at Cal Coast Bicycles located at 3020 Adams Avenue San Diego, CA 92116. Stop by to enter in your action shots, enjoy good company, and learn more about SDMBA-PRO.
All photos will be displayed at the event and judged by your peers. Winners will get their photos printed on the SDMBA-PRO Poster Calendar and receive cool swag from Cal Coast Bicycles; the Best of show grand prize will be announced soon!
