If you missed our last Blazer Bike Night back in November, you have a chance to redeem yourself next month.
We’re excited to announce our spring Blazer Bike Night on Wednesday, April 8th when our Trail Blazers go up against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Yes, we realize the T’wolves aren’t exactly a top-tier, but we picked this game for two main reasons. We know a lot of Portlanders have Minnesota roots, so we figured it’d be fun to acknowledge that midwest pride. Also, the T’wolves have an amazing player in Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins was the #1 pick in the 2014 draft and the experts are freaking out on his potential. He’ll be wonderful to watch.
Speaking of new players, did you notice how the newest Blazer, Aaron Afflalo, is a big biking fan? He wrote that he was so excited to come to Portland that he wanted to ride out here from Denver. And on Monday, Afflalo told Trail Blazers Courtside hosts Mike Barrett and Antonio Harvey that he was doing some bike shopping (at the 15:00 mark).
Blazer Bike Night is about more than just a basketball game! We’ll meet up before the game at Salmon Street Fountain in Waterfront Park. Then we’ll ride en masse across the river, down the new Jerome Kersey Bike Lane on NE Multnomah Blvd, then onto the Moda Center campus.
Everyone who buys a ticket through our special discount portal page will be given a custom reflective Trail Blazers logo sticker (they’re awesome!) and will be eligible to win a very cool helmet signed by none other than Damian Lillard. 300-level tickets are available for $22 and we’ll all sit together if you purchase them at this website (use promo code “BIKE”).
The deadline to get tickets as part of our Blazers Bike Night group is March 9th. Check out the event page for updates and more information.
Hope to see a lot of you there. Go Blazers!
