Bike Park in Tampa
« on: August 27, 2015, 09:17:00 PM »
Hope people will be coming to ride this weekend.. we have about 30-45 days to get attendance up, if we cant get riders to show up and support this project it will fade away fast, insurance and rent payments are starting to come in so we need riders to get excited, spread the word, and show up to train.... getting nervous about this market, didn't think it would be a uphill battle to get our niche market to take action..

Here's an idea... Why not host a social ride through the park? The club meets up once a month and does an hour or so social ride, sometime around Seminole Heights or Temple Terrace or Ybor or wherever, then meets back at a venue for food and drinks. Can't think of a better way to get the word out and get people to experience what you're building. Turnout is always very substantial. Maybe email the group and let them know what you're offering, how long it would take a rider to traverse the whole park at a social pace, exactly where it is... I'm sure it could be incorporated as part of a social ride and you'd be able to meet with a lot of riders at once before and after the ride.

Can you get some pictures? It is a drive for some people and it'd be nice to see what the place looks like.

If your looking for a sanctioned statement/advertising by SWAMP, you should attend the monthly Board meeting so we can get to know your you, your facility and event. If interested, you can contact me, membership@SWAMPclub.org, with some information and I will facilitate getting you on the agenda. BTW Dirt Diggler had a great suggestion! The next meeting is scheduled for monday 9/2 @ 6pm.

I can't tell if the OP is serious or not. How could he be serious and not post the address or a link to more info. I googled Bike Park Tampa, and didn't see anything relative. If he's serious and he fails, it'll because he's terrible at marketing.

Yes, it must only be you getting those results because you visit the FB Page constantly and its cache'd on your search page.
This is what comes up for me:

What was supposed to tip me off to search for that?
