MOB Racing Team Makes Front Page News!

The month of June has definitely been a great month to see the MOB kits around locally. There have been many opportunities for our team members to volunteer with local charities. The beginning of June, team members were spotted at the MS VIBE ride held in Kernersville. The ride is held annually as a Tour to Tanglewood training ride for participants who raise over $1000 for the local MS chapter. During the middle of the month, MOB kits were seen at the Pedal the Piedmont charity ride. A well put together ride that raises money for the Kernersville Rotary club. (Also, we made front page news for the Kernersville newspaper.) The Tour to Tanglewood training ride held at the shop brought out many of our team members helping out with marking the course, assisting participants with parking and general ride support. The list doesn’t end here…this upcoming weekend will be the Piedmont Triad Omnium. I know many of our team members will be racing…but we have team members that will be helping out with race course set up and as course marshals. The Piedmont Triad Omnium is not only a fun weekend but it’s an excellent opportunity to help out with such a worthy event. The money raised from the weekend racing goes to the Central NC MS chapter. (Also Ken and I want to express our thanks to everyone who will be helping out with Friday night’s events…the responses we have received for volunteers have been impressive.)

Finally, I have really enjoyed participating in the above events. Not only are we helping out with local charities… but it gives us the opportunity to meet other cyclists in the area and to get to know your team members.
