of LIVESTRONG and the only national 24-hour road cycling charity event
in the country, is teaming up with its partner Mountain Khakis to host
an open ride with Team Mountain Khakis (Team MK).
During their Charlotte visit for a Team Training Camp on Friday, March
11, Team MK will be spinning on the "Booty Loop" in Charlotte's Myers
Park from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Similar to the wildly popular "Twitter Rides"
Lance Armstrong has done throughout the world, this ride is open to
the public and offers the chance to ride with top professional
cyclists and show your support for 24 Hours of Booty. More information
is available at www.facebook.com/cyclemk and www.twitter.com/TeamMntKhakis
"It's such a privilege to be associated with 24 Hours of Booty this
year, and when we saw the opportunity to take a spin with Spencer and
other Booty supporters, we jumped at the chance," said Adam Myerson,
captain and manager of Team Mountain Khakis. "The 'Booty Loop' is
legendary, and it'll be great to stretch our legs with the Charlotte
cycling community before we head off to race on Saturday in
Blythewood, South Carolina."
"We are stoked to host 'our' Team Mountain Khakis on the 'Booty Loop'
and to give them a warm welcome with our area's cycling community,"
said Spencer Lueders, founder of 24 Hours of Booty and a Mountain
Khakis ambassador. "We'd love for people to come join us in this fun
afternoon ride and to meet this extraordinary cycling team."
Participating cyclists are welcome to join for as many laps as they
wish, and are asked to be respectful to traffic laws and other users
of the "Booty Loop" during this free and open gathering. Riders are
encouraged to park and ride to riding start point, which will be at
the "Bootyville" parking lot on Wellesley Avenue (between Selwyn and
Queens Road West). For more information, visit the Team MK Facebook
