Re: 
2019 Bicycle Relay Race & Trade Show
Denise, I have received the pdf you sent, and I thank Mayor Dainels for giving you my contact info. I have not yet filled out the pdf forms because I am hopeful we are able to get some local businesses to co-sponsor this event with us. Several event specialist we have discussed this event with have implored us   - if possible - to have a local sponsors and a local board of directors.

Don't know if Mayor Dainels shared with you all of the details of the international events we are proposing. What we would like to do next November or December in Gilbert, AZ, is have a week long coed bicycle relay-race and trade show.

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 teamís bike mechanic and a medical trainer.

These teams will compete in three separate 100 mile relay-race events: one will be all male; two, will be all female; three, will be two males and two females. Cyclist will race 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.

In addition to the relay races, we plan to have 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 in the convention center.

Denise, 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 where the trade show is being held.

Although this will be our first ever bicycle relay race and trade show, we are confident this nationally televised event will attract thousands of spectators and 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/s, but we are confident that once we confirm the city where these events will be held that we will find multiple corporate sponsors.


Sincerely,

Jess Phillips, Jr.

Thank you Jess, and yes mayor Daniels shared that information with me as well. 

The Town of Gilbert do not have a convention center or facility to host a trade show.  You might want to check with the Falls Event Center and inquire if they could host your trade show. Once you secure a trade show location I could work with you on the route that could accommodate your race. I will however let you know, road closures in Gilbert become thought to navigate due to our roads creating a grid, locking many homes in their communities when we do races.
 
Perhaps start with locating a trade show venue and we can tackle the route once you find a starting and ending point. 
 
Let me know if you have any questions. 
Denise
