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.

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 7p. 

The Ride for Heroes was Sept 13th.  Thanks to all the Club members who rode and especially those that helped Torie make it a special day.


Rich Hostak is leading the September Sunday Social Rides.  The Sept Social Ride will depart from Monument Valley Park parking lot.  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 ( jeanzeh@yahoo.com ) with comments, questions, or to volunteer. 

National Bike Challenge started May 1st - and ends at the end of this month.  Our team name is Colorado Springs Cycling Club 2014.  As of Sep 13th we had 114 team members and 112 had posted miles.  We are in 13th place among 1,254 national teams for Sep and returned to 12th for the entire Challenge (we passed Bike Santa Monica again) In Colorado we are the #2 Team, just a few points behind the Bike Commuter Cabal that has 113 members but only 5 are from CO???

Peggy Seidel (573-5050 apjbuffalo@aol.com)  is making her way though her cancer treatments.  It was great to see her at the Jul 20th Picnic.  Ronaele Foss (351-9775  rsfoss@hotmail.com 
) 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.
