The Green Girl Won The Big Prize

$20 money card line starts here at the Performance Bikes Long Beach
The Green Girl headed over to the grand opening of the Performance Bikes Long Beach store this morning.

It was advertised that the first hundred customers would receive a $20 money card.

The store opened at 9 am but there was already well over a hundred people in line when I arrived at 8:30 am.

I decided I would stick out the line for a chance to win prizes from spinning the wheel.

Us back of the liners were thrilled when they ended up giving every single customer in line a $20 money card.

Some people opted to bypass the wheel spinning line and headed into the store. I was determined to win something cool so I waited patiently in the line that wrapped around the store.

Performance Bikes Long Beach Grand Opening
The right side of the store was covered by a three-tier wall of bikes.

Accessories filled shelves on the left and apparel was featured in the center of the floor.

In the back, there was the Spin Doctor Bike Repair service center with a shiny new pegboard wall and tools with bright blue grips.

Spin Zone virtual ride
In between the racks of bikes, there was a Spin Zone virtual ride station.

I was still waiting in line when Jay from Tri2Thrive arrived.

I got really excited when I saw one of the prizes was a Hurricane HP Micro Mini Pump.

When my turn came to spin the big wheel, I kept repeating that I wanted the Big Prize and I squealed when it actually landed on the red Big Prize wedge.

I quickly grabbed the mini pump and Jay snapped a picture of me posing with my prize next to the lucky wheel.

Pearl Izumi Sugar Shorts
After a great deal of deliberation and consideration, I ended up purchasing a pair of chamois padded Pearl Izumi Sugar Shorts.
The shorts were regularly priced $55 but they were on sale for $45. Performance Bike was taking 15% in celebration of the grand opening so combined with my $20 money card, the shorts came to $20.

It was a fruitful grand opening visit for the Green Girl.
