*Please note: We also now have a "Bike Related
Services Page" if you are looking to find painters, safety courses,
bike shipping and more stuff like that.
Why do we work for FREE?
We do this site as a FREE SERVICE to support the cause.
We are a 100% VOLUNTEER dis-ORGANIZATION.
There is a huge cost of time and money involved in running
this web site.
Some sites charge money to use their services, but that's not what Cyberspokes is all about!
Our #1 purpose is to support the Buffalo and Western New York motorcycling community while helping to
promote fundraisers for charitable organizations and other biker-related causes.
Cyberspokes.com has been around since 1999, which is a very long time as
far as the Internet goes.
We specialize Buffalo and Western New York motorcycle events ONLY.
See our "About Us" page for more info on who
Through our Buffalo & Western New York Events
page, we provide an opportunity for motorcycle clubs, dealerships, vendors and
individual motorcyclists to join together to make a positive contribution to the
community and to the motorcycling image. We are also the founders of the Annual
Motorcycle Run and Rally for the Food Bank of Western New York.
Event Organizers, Promoters, Business Owners!
Do you who want to make sure that
you get the word out to as many
bikers as possible? A listing on Cyberspokes.com brings in the crowds and
makes for a GREAT TIME FOR ALL!!!
The simple procedure outlined below KEEPS THIS SERVICE FREE, so please do not
ask us to make an exception for you. It would not be fair to those charities and
organizations who support the cause. We keep an eye on all biker related
resources and we are always out and about.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 2018:
Please do not submit or plan any events for Saturday September 15, 2018! We will
only be posting one event for that date. This will be a MUST ATTEND for ALL
BIKERS from Buffalo, WNY and surrounding areas. This is the BIG
18 YEAR ANNIVERSARY for The Food Bank of WNY Motorcycle Run & Rally.
This is the one and only date that is reserved so we can ALL get together and
support one cause!
We can advertise your event for FREE, and all we ask in return is that you
make a small mention of "Cyberspokes.com - Cyberspace for BIKERS"
somewhere on all your event flyers and advertising. Some folks just mention, "This
event is also listed onů" or "We are also listed on...",
or something to that effect, but we're not too
picky. Whatever works best for you. Then email us a
JPEG copy of your flyer to confirm. You must also email us a paragraph of basic text with all the details you
would like listed. A phone number is required in ALL event or business listings. Please
exacly what website or Facebook Event Page the flyer is posted to. Then we can
share it with our 4000+ followers!! If
we notice that the flyer you sent us is the ONLY one with Cyberspokes listed on
it, and we are not listed on your flyers elsewhere, we will assume your event is
PRIVATE and promplty remove your
We will list your event on our EVENTS page and also
include it on our Facebook page which goes out to over 4000 WNY (Western New
York) bikers. We regularly get THOUSANDS OF HITS per week to our
website. Just search for Cyberspokes on Google.com,
Bing.com or Yahoo.com and you will see what we mean! Many of the events we list also get included in many other web
sites and publications, including Hard
Tales Magazine - a full-color hard-copy WNY publication dedicated to bikers, their
needs and lifestyles and the Harley
Davidson Motorcycle Event Calendar. Because Bike Nights typically happen
every week, we do not send them out in our emailer.
We are also on Facebook and YouTube!
Remember, most flyers get thrown out or lost. But if
someone knows you were listed on "Cyberspokes.com - Cyberspace for BIKERS",
they just have to hit the web and all your info will be at their finger-tips!
Plus, it's a very easy website to remember.
It's a simple process we like to call the "Full-circle 360 Degrees
of Cooperation". By listing a small mention of "Cyberspokes.com -
Cyberspace for BIKERS"
on your HARD-COPY paper flyers, you are virtually guaranteeing the chances that people will
be able to find out about your event or business now AND in the future.
Plus, you could feel good about yourself, because you will be helping other
charities get their events noticed too!
That's all there
is to it. We try to keep it simple. Please email us if you have any questions.
Feel free to download the "How to Organize a SUCCESSFUL
Charity Motorcycle Run or Event" guide. It is VERY helpful for new and
experienced motorcycle event organizers.
Also, if you are doing a "Bike
Night" follow these tips. Otherwise people will NOT come back. Trust
me, we have seen them come and go MANY times over the years.
Ten Tips To Running A Successful Bike
1. Live Music - And don't forget to keep the sound system and Deejay
going when the band is on break.
2. Bike Awards - Preferably trophies or plaques, not just bar swag.
3. Contests & Giveaways - Something fun like trivia, eating contests,
best tattoo, longest beard/pony-tail etc.
4. Vendors - A great chance for local biker related businesses to show
5. Drink & Food Specials - Keep the crowd coming back every week by
offering them good deals.
6. Outdoor Beer Stations - People should be able easily & quickly get a drink and
walk around beer-in-hand OUTSIDE to check out the bikes in the lot.
7. Adequate Paved Parking - Make sure you provide a solid, secure,
dedicated area for bike
parking with staff to help people properly park.
8. Raffles To Help Local Charities - Invite local charity organizations
to setup at your event to show your support.
9. Weekday Bike Nights Are Best - Start at 6pm or earlier during the
week. There are already enough Motorcycle
runs and events on the weekends.
10. Go April to October - Start in late April or early May and run right
through October. Don't miss out my ending yours too early in the
