October 12 - 13, 2013
Thank you to everyone who joined us last year for the ElliptiGO Rally in San Diego. It was fun to see old friends and be able to meet many of you for the first time. We hope to meet more of you and make it an even bigger and better event in 2013! Below are some photos taken at the Rally at Saturday evening's party, courtesy of Bill Pinnell. You can find these plus a few others in his Flickr Album.
A tentative schedule for the weekend is below, along with some possible hotel options for out-of-town visitors. More details and exact locations for the weekend's activities will provided as they are finalized in the coming weeks. If you live far enough away from San Diego that you would have to ship your ElliptiGO here to participate, we are also making 10 ElliptiGOs available that weekend on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please let us know if you will be coming to any of the group rides, the time trial or the social gatherings so that we can have enough support and refreshments for everyone by sending Erin an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't live near San Diego, but would still like to join us?
We are making 10 ElliptiGOs available to out-of-town owners who would otherwise have to ship their own ElliptiGO. They will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so please send an email to Erin to let her know you would like to reserve one. If you would like to reserve an ElliptiGO for a family member who is traveling with you to San Diego for the weekend, please also let us know and we will try to accommodate you. Once you've connected with Erin, you'll need to send in a $20 check to guarantee the reservation.
If you have other questions about the Rally Weekend, please email Erin: email@example.com.
