TACOMA, Wash.

“We’re always looking for fun, unique ways to engage families and people from all types of backgrounds, and this event is a great example,” says Scot Keller, ACM chief communications and marketing officer. “Whether it’s the classic bikes, the BMX stunts, the live music or access to our award-winning museum, Meet at the Ace has something everyone will enjoy.”

Team Ride and Glide, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, has launched the careers of several X Games gold medalists. Their blend of entertainment and education has been showcased around the globe, including China, Russia and India.

“As much as Ride and Glide is known for wowing crowds with aerial stunts, their true focus is on positively impacting kids,” says Keller. “Audience interaction is encouraged during each performance, allowing the team to relay messages of bicycle safety, self-esteem and healthy living. They’re about pointing young people in the right direction … and that’s what ACM is about, too.”
