zMotion rides with Tom Danielson's Holiday Cruise

Sunday was the scene of around 50 riders that braved the cold to hang with Tom Danielson over in Naples at his first annual Holiday Cruise. It was an 80 mile ride and a great chance to both ride and learn from a ProTour Rider. Tom will be riding is first Tour de France this year with his breakout Garmin-Transitions team.

It was a great event and we got to experience TRYING (and failing) to hang with Tom when the pace picked up before the halfway point. The only brave souls that could stick with him were two naples guys and our very own Alex and Victor.

We even got to see Pablo Santa Cruz wearing a zMotion jersey (just don't tell his team).

Kids in Distress Ride 2009

As Title sponsor, zMotion was proud to be part of the 2009 KIDS annual Inlet Challenge and as always it proved to be a fun and challenging ride for all 700 plus riders that participated and we look forward to next years as well. Congrats to Jennifer Homan and the entire staff at KIDS for all their efforts, as well as Gina, Emily and our staff at zMotion for providing all of us with such a great venue . I was particularly glad to see the weather cooperate, especially for me, those long windy rides can make it very difficult for a guy like me. BTW, the food was incredible this year too, a little mix of Tai, Sushi and some good ole pasta and salad, let’s not forget the extra cold beers too !!

Most important, is the satisfaction we derive from participating in such a great event for such a great cause that benefits children of many ages and their families , of all walks of life that are/have been abused and/or abandoned. I encourage all our readers to visit their facility, if you have children, bring them, it puts everything into perspective on what’s important in life. Like all organizations that suffer the economic times, KIDS is no exception and they need all of our helps even more than ever. So regardless if you rode this year or not, if your reading this article and have a heart give a buck or two, it goes a long way.

Happy Holidays to all
Your Captain
