To: Mayor Robert Garcia, Long Beach, CA
Re: 
2019 Bicycle Relay Race & Trade Show
Mayor Garcia, as you will note from the emails below to and from UCLA officials, we would like to have a coed bicycle relay-race and trade show in metro Los Angeles next year. 

The biggest challenge was/is being able to keep the trade show and the relay-races combined. Ideally, we would like to have the bike races begin and end at the same location as the trade show.

Mayor, we anticipate these events -- relay races and trade show -- will attract thousands of cyclist, spectators and sports journalist from all over the world. Could we have these bike races and trade show in Long Beach? Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Jess Phillips, Jr.

Re: 2019 Bicycle Relay Race and Trade Show at UCLA
 
Chancellor Block, with your offices help, we would like to have an international bicycle relay-race and trade show at UCLA in July 2019.
The plan is to invite (from college/university bike clubs all over the world) 200 eight member race teams. Each team will have four males and four females. Each team will also have two additional members: the team’s bike mechanic and a medical trainer.

 
These teams will compete in three separate 100 mile relay events: one will be all male; two, will be all female; three, will be two males and two females. Racers will ride 25 miles before passing the baton to their teammate.
 
This will be a week long event. The first three days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday will be used to pick the sixteen fastest teams in each category. Thursday will be an off day.
 
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we will have the final races. On Friday, 16 all male teams will race; Saturday, 16 all female teams will race; Sunday, 16 coed teams (2 males and 2 females) will race.
 
In addition to the relay races, we plan to have – on campus - a large bicycle trade show. At this trade show, bike manufacturers from all over the world will display their bikes and accessories from display booths scattered around campus.
 
Chancellor, much of the success of these events will depend on keeping the relay races and the trade show combined. We have to come up with a race route that starts and ends on campus where the trade show is being held.
 
There will be three million dollars in prize money for the winning race team winners and one million dollars for advertising and personnel.
Although this will be our first ever bicycle relay race and trade show, we are confident this nationally televised event will generate more money than it cost to produce. Each of the 200 participating race teams will pay a $15,000 registration fee. (200 x $15,000 = $3,000,000). There will be additional funds from display booths, parking, concessions and TV broadcast rights.
 
We do not as yet have a corporate sponsor, but we are confident that once we confirm the campus where these events will be held that we will find multiple corporate sponsors.
 
If these collegiate bicycle relay races and trade show will work for UCLA, we would love to discuss our plans in more detail. You are welcome to call or email me anytime regarding these events. Thank you for your time.
 
Sincerely,

Jess Phillips, Jr.

Jess:
Just a quick response to your follow-up question. The race course utilized on campus for the Bruin Triathlon would not work for this event. The actual course which is pre-scheduled for early morning use on a Sunday is only 3.5 miles and not nearly wide enough or long enough to complete a cycling event of this magnitude. Additionally please know our summer months are as complicated as the academic year  with summer conferences and summer camps, drop-off and pick-up, summer campus events, daily operations, construction and mitigations, UCLA Reagan hospital needs, and daily deliveries which makes it impossible for any types of campus road closures.
As I had indicated, our club cycling races take place in Lancaster or Palmdale which has plenty of space for any type of road race, but would not be high volume for a trade show. In my personal opinion with high density traffic and logistics, West Los Angeles and the Los Angeles metro area would be very challenged for an event of this nature. As an example the Los Angeles Marathon closes roads from Downtown LA to the Westside, 26 miles, from 12am-2p one day a year on a Sunday at a cost of around $600,000 which while well planned still creates much congestion and planning issues.
Your best option might be to look at options in the surrounding cities/areas of Los Angeles. This might include Long Beach, Pasadena, Thousand Oaks, or the Palmdale/Lancaster area where a course and event of this nature might be possible. In this model, you could then approach a number of the university and college cycling clubs to be associated in this large collegiate event in Southern California.
I have copied Brian Smith, UCLA Recreation Associate Director over Recreational Sports and club teams. I might suggest you follow-up with Brian and arrange a conference call where Brian can also include the UCLA Club Cycling coach.
All the best as you pursue options.
