The Second Annual Fitbird Tailgate Ride!

September 18, 2010

For the second year in a row, the Fitbirds have taken to the LSU campus for their annual Tailgate Ride. For those that don't know, the Tailgate Ride tradition began one year ago after a group training ride on the levee. Tired and thirsty, the group rode around campus until they came upon the early morning game day setup of one of their team member's nephews. As the tents and cooler had been left unattended, it was a unanimous decision that this favorite nephew would want his auntie and her friends to imbibe in a cold one (or two). Beers were chugged and the training ride was finished with grins all around. It was not until later that we learned that we had commandeered the wrong tailgate cooler and had stolen (borrowed) an innocent tailgater's beer. In true Fitbird fashion, the beer was replaced with an additional beer donation for the mistake, and the story went down in Fitbird history.

Euroland Cystic Fibrosis Cycle For Life

As members of Fitbird Fitness, when rallied by one of our own, we respond. McCall Dempsey initiated the plea for help to raise funds for a great cause that could someday help the daughter of a dear family friend that has been affected by this disease. Offering us the opportunity to come together as a team, cycle the beautiful countryside of St. Francisville, and raise money for a good cause seemed to be all it took for her to organize the largest cycling team for this inaugural local event.
