What is a PokerRide?

A PokerRide is a cute name for a fun game that provides an opportunity for our community to stay connected via texting. Participants will be assigned an AngelRide volunteer to “deal” them cards as they complete sections of their own route. The volunteers will stay in the comfort of their homes.

You can complete your personalized AngelRide PokerRide in 1 day, 2 days or 3 days: May 29-31, 2021.

Cyclists, mountain bikers, runners and walkers are invited to participate on your own course at your own pace, outdoors or indoors.

  • Cyclists will earn 1 PokerRide card every 12 miles.
  • Mountain Bikers will earn 1 PokerRide card every 6 miles.
  • Runners and Walkers will earn 1 PokerRide card every 4 miles.

We will pair you up with an AngelRide volunteer via cell phones, respecting the need for physical distancing. When you complete each leg of your route, simply text a selfie to your assigned AngelRide volunteer and they will deal you a card! Take creative and fun pics – we will create a slideshow!

Earn at least 3 cards to play the PokerRide game. Challenge yourself! Set a goal that you need to train for!

Go the distance and complete the mileage to earn 5 cards and you can discard 2 cards. Check out the AngelRide Group/Club on Ride with GPS and Strava to share favorites routes and stay connected. There are AngelRiders on Zwift too!

At the virtual Closing ceremony 2 Community Cards will be revealed and a winning hand determined. That person will have a $1,000 donation made in their name to The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp! Valerie won last year with 3 Aces!
