CSCC Help Metro Ride Pro Challenge Bike Valet

US Pro Challenge race day was 8/21 in Colorado Springs. About a dozen Club members helped Colorado Springs Metro Ride staff their Bike Valet located at Acacia Park by the shuffle board courts. In the picture provided by Dale Campbell you can see Club members tagging bikes and their riders before putting the bikes in the parking area. We helped from 2 - 5:30p. The biggest rush was about 4p (30 minutes after the race ended). Using the Metro Ride processes every thing went smoothly and we looked like professionals. Thanks to the Club volunteers Janine Hegeman, Bill Gast, CeCe Beauchamp, Lee Murphy, Sara Hill, John Pamperin, Dennis Struck, Suchart Mack, Karl Klepfer, and Charlie Czarniecki. Special thanks to Dave VanDerWege for organizing this for the Club.

The 2014 Annual Mystery Ride

Lee Murphy's 3rd Annual Mystery Bike Ride was Saturday, August 9th. Over 65 people rode to 7 mystery locations. We were back at ATB Park at 1:15p as it began to shower a little. Look for more details to be added to this news item shortly. (group pic in front of Penrose House by Vern Pitcher)

Hi All,

Club Meeting was Tuesday (9/2) at the Garden of the God's Citizen Service Center in our usual 1st floor conference room by the west door (Rm 1019 - Event Room A).  The minutes are contained in the news item in the left column.   The BVBF committee provided a wrap up of the 2014 June event.  They presented 9 key BVBF worker assignments that they need Club members to step forward and commit to in order to organize a 2015 annual ride.  Watch your EMAIL for more information.  They say they need these personal committments by Oct 15th in order to proceed.  The next Club meeting will be at the Citizen Center on Oct 7th - snacks at 6pm and meeting at 6:30p.  Dr. Allison Nicklin from Rehabilitation Revolution Physical Therapy will be our featured speaker. 

Barb and I spent 10 days on the road in mid Sept.  We ended up in Sacramento CA for our oldest son's wedding.  We are still recovering around the house from the trip, things were fast and furious when we returned.  We rode our bikes around the South Lake Tahoe and Sacramento trails.  While in Tahoe, we rode up to the Heavenly Ski area parking lot and commuted between CA and Nevada a few days - just because we could.  The wedding was in the Sacramento Cathedral and all the events were within walking distance of the Sheraton - it was a special weekend for us and our family.  Lots has happened in the week since we returned.  Lots of National Bike Challenge final rides.  Lots of volleyball and basketball refereed that wasn't originally on my schedule.  AND Barb finished her working relationship with Hancock Fabric, retired in a sense that she is planning to not work any more.  We might get to ski more this winter.

Kerry Hefta and Bill Gast are leading the October Sunday Social Rides.  The Social Ride returns to its normal start location at Acacia Park.  See the Ride Calendar for details.

Ride chairperson Jean Zeh says we still need Ride Leaders to step up for the Saturday Road Ride and Sunday Hill Climb Rides.  EMAIL her ( ) with comments, questions, or to volunteer. 

National Bike Challenge started May 1st - and ended Sept 30th.  Our team name is Colorado Springs Cycling Club 2014.  We had 115 team members and everyone posted miles.  We finished in 8th place among 1,265 national teams for Sep and 12th for the entire Challenge In Colorado we were the #1 Team in Aug and Sept, and finished 2nd for the entire Challenge behind the Bike Commuter Cabal that has 117 members but only 5 from CO???

Peggy Seidel (573-5050  is making her way though her cancer treatments.  It was great to see her at the Jul 20th Picnic.  Ronaele Foss (351-9775 
) is in assisted living on Centennial Blvd and recovering from her back fractures and other things.  They appreciate calls, EMAILs, or visits from the Club.

A STOP sign means stop at those intersections.  At least put one foot on the ground.  This applies to everyone riding in the group, not just the ride leader.
