This past year we launched our Walt's Bike Shop/Tallgrass Brewing ambassador team. The goal of the team was to bring promotion of cycling through involvement in events around Missouri. This included group rides, awareness and charity rides, races and even "party rides" such as the Pedaler's Jamboree. We believe that the team has succeeded in growing the sport over the past year and are looking forward to continuing in 2013.
Ambassadors accumulated over 200 hours of service at events such as The Pedaler's Jamboree, Bike MS, Froze Toes, the Monster Bike Bash, Rhett's Run MTB Race, the Walt's Breast Cancer Awareness Ride and many more.
In racing, Walt's Tallgrass ambassadors have seen plenty of time spent on podiums around Missouri and in surrounding states. We were even able to take home three state champion cyclocross jerseys!
In 2013, the we will continue to support local cycling through a variety of events. The team will again promote the CoMo Awesomo Cyclocross Race here in Columbia and will co-promote the Hairy Hundred Gravel Race and the CoMo Cyclocross Training Series.
Also in 2013, the team will continue to grow. We're proud to announce that this year there will be two tiers of membership including the Club Ambassador and Elite Ambassador levels. Feel free to stop by the shop for more information about joining the Ambassador Team!
