BC Bike Race, The Mega Volt

Stage 4: Tour De Tzou

Today’s course is all about wicked fun trails, what an e-bike can do and how to have a Rip Snortin Good time doing it – woot woot Instead of creating a race, we thought a Poker Challenge would be a great way to get out and ride the trails at your preferred speed. This might be the day to manage battery and body as we want to put the icing on the cake for the first ever weekend of E, E-Bike Nation. Thanks for being part of history – you earned it – MEGA On!!
Details on Card Draws:
Full Lap 1 nets 5 card hand – now you’re in the game
If rider has more battery, they can loop a second lap for a two (2) card draw
If rider has more battery, they can loop a third lap for another two (2) card draw
