Promotes Life By Bike: We not only aim to create the best possible day on the bike, we also work to promote a sustainable cycling-based lifestyle. We do this in multiple ways: requiring riders to choose their own safe routes through the city, communicating specific and relevant sponsor messages, and demonstrating sustainable action throughout the production. Supports local communities: In each of the Urban Assault Ride markets, we work with multiple non-profits in the cycling-advocacy and sustainability/recycling industry. In 2011, we donated over $45,000 to 15 non-profits across the country! New Belgium Urban Assault Ride is a production of Adventure Fit Inc

  • 6. Sustainability Efforts: • Working with local recycling and composting non-profits for collection and sorting of our event waste. On average 94% of the UAR’s waste is diverted from landfills • We work exclusively with companies that promote a sustainable lifestyle and use sustainable business practices • Instead of plastic bags for our packets, we offer participants reusable drawstring bags. • No paper coupons are included in our packets • Food and drink containers are all compostable or recyclable.Advertising Strategy: The Urban Assault Ride caters to a broad demographic and we advertise unlike any other cycling event. Since our demographic are not normally bike racers, we promote to people interested in music, food, and movies. Of course, we still have strong exposure anywhere a cyclist or runner may look to find events. • National Print Magazines – Cycling and fitness magazines with national distribution • Entertainment Weekies – Print and online • Active Print publications – Print and online • Daily Newspapers – Print and online • Social Media – monthly online contests, • eNewsletters – Our monthly newsletter hits over 20,000 readers • Groupon/DailyDeals – We offered heavily discounted entries in most markets • Street Team – our ambassadors poster, list the events in local forums, and speak to groups • Postering – we mail posters to over 100 bike shops, running stores, gyms, and bars in each market New Belgium Urban Assault Ride is a production of Adventure Fit Inc
