Tour de Taverns

Bicycle Poker Run

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Date is set, October 9th, 2010

The Viking Biking Club invites you to join us for the 3rd annual Tour de Taverns bicycle poker run. You ask, "what is this about?" Its a rolling circus. Eighteen miles on the Military Ridge bike trail. Approximately 4-5 miles between scheduled tavern stops. Each stop will allow you to draw a card which will be applied to your 5 card poker hand. Best hand at the end of the day wins a $100 pot. We also attempt to secure raffle prizes for all participants. As with any poker run, you must make it to the next scheduled stop to draw your card. Failure to do so forfeits your hand. Here's how the day goes down:
  • 9am registration at Troll Inn in Mt. Horeb (breakfast available).
  • $20 entry fee +$4 day use trail pass if you do not already have one. Entry gets you 1 poker hand. Additional hands available for $3 each.
  • 10:15 am mass start
