Come out for the Revelstoke Cycling Association’s Great Big Poker Ride on Saturday, October 5!

There are stops on all of our networks: Macpherson, Boulder, Frisby, and Sunnyside. The more stops you visit, the more cards you collect, the greater chances you have of winning. Check out the map below for the complete list:

Prizes include a mountain bike season pass at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, a heli-bike trip courtesy Wandering Wheels, and much more courtesy Tantrum, Flowt and Skookum.

Here’s how the day will go:

  1. There is no official start time. Gather your friends and head out on your bikes (or feet)
  2. If you want, stop by the farmers market to say hi. We’ll be there promoting the ride.
  3. Get the list of stops.
  4. Pick your poison – shuttle or pedal on Frisby and Boulder, or ride up and down and around Macpherson and Sunnyside.
  5. When you reach a stop, take a selfie (or get a friend to take a photo of you). Make sure the photo clearly identifies where you are.
  6. Come to the River City Pub from 6-8 p.m. and pay your $10 registration fee.
  7. Our judges will review your selfies and give out your cards. The more stops you hit, the more cards you get.
  8. Go through your cards and select your best poker hand. We’ll write it down and put the cards back in the deck for the next person.
  9. Wait to find out if you won. We’ll be announcing the winners in the front room of the River City Pub at 8.
  10. Drink up, because 20% of all Mt. Begbie beer sales go to the RCA!
  11. Stick around for the after-party with Catnado & the Subaneers.
