FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jim Dodson Law is an Official Sponsor of Gulf Coast Cyclefest 2012
October 22, 2012
Lakewood Ranch, Florida: Personal injury attorney Jim Dodson, an avid cyclist and longtime advocate for bicycle safety and cyclists’ rights, is pleased to announce that he is an official sponsor of the Sarasota Manatee Bicycle Club’s 21st Annual Gulf Coast Cyclefest to be held on Sunday, November 4, beginning and ending in Lakewood Ranch.
Jim will be riding in the 35 mile race and will have a booth at the event where members of his staff will be giving away free copies of his consumer guides. These informative handbooks cover topics of interest to consumers about personal injury law and how cyclists, in particular, can protect themselves from drivers with no insurance or drivers with some insurance but not enough to cover the damage they did. Jim will also have free reports of interest to cyclists such as tips on what to do if you’ve been in an accident involving a motor vehicle. Visitors to the Jim Dodson Law booth can enter a free raffle for a bike computer and a Road ID simply by signing up to receive Jim’s free monthly newsletter.
Participants will be able to choose among four scenic routes of various lengths: 100, 62, 35 and 20 miles. The $40 entrance fee includes a free breakfast and lunch, and four well-stocked rest stops, SAG support, and Performance Tee shirts for the first 500 registrants.
A pre-race dinner will be held on Saturday, November 3, at the Polo Grill & Bar just off Main Street in Lakewood Ranch from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
