Feb 7th Sunday Social Ride

The Temp got up to 40'F on Superbowl Sunday. Dick Timberlake, Tim Lopez, and Charlie Czar found Tejon and Cascade were plowed, as was the Greenway Trail. We hit snow north of the University Village bridge up to Criterium. The side roads were still covered in snow - but we tried Polk on the way back, and stayed upright. There wasn't anyone downtown at the Park, so we had to settle for a "selfie".

Letter to Past BVBF Riders

You should soon see an invitation to register for the Buena Vista Bike Fest yet. CSCC has stepped aside as the manager of this event. The Buena Vista Rotary Club now has full rights to BVBF, and they have had some challenges in getting the registration up and running. The following letter provides more information.

Leaders for the Club's 30th Year

The Club officers for 2016 and 2017 are

New Year Lunch @ BJ Brewhouse

A number of Frozen Water Bottle riders went inside BJ Brewhouse after the Jan 1st ride for the Club's 1st lunch of the year.

30th annual frozen water bottle rides

The Club hosted our annual New Year Day Frozen Water Bottle Rides on Jan 1st. We had both a road ride and mountain bike ride. We left the BJ Brewhouse parking lot just after 10am. We had nearly 40 people ride with us. The mountain bike group are pictured above and were joined in the bottom picture by the road riders. As you can see it was a cloudless sunny morning with no wind, temp was 20'F when we left and near 30'F on our return. This was quite a contrast to the 2015 ride when we rode through a morning snow storm. We returned this year about noon and had lunch at the Brewhouse. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hi All,

The rescheduled, snow delayed February Club meeting is Thursday Feb 11th at the Garden of the Gods Citizens' Service Center.  Snacks start at 6pm and meeting starts at 6:30.  The CSCC Board of Director's (BoD) 1st meeting was Jan 21st at Janine's home.  Our 2nd BoD meeting will be at VP Rich Hostak's home at 6:30pm on Tuesday Feb 23rd.  We'll discuss results of the survey questions that Janine got from Club members at the Jan membership meeting and we'll develop the Club's 2016 budget.  The March 1st Club meeting at the Citizens' Service Center will be the annual Club business meeting as required by the Club's By-Laws.

The February Sunday Social Rides will be led by Charlie Czar.  See the calendar for details.  He'll also lead the Feb 21st Full Moon Ride.

CSCC is working with the O'Donnell family to handle the St Pat Bike Ride portion of the 32nd Annual St Pat Parade activities http://www.csstpats.com/  .  Jean Zeh is organizing our efforts for the bike ride course marking, corner marshalls, and rest stops.  Please help if you are called, the Club receives a donation for our efforts.

The 2015 National Bike Challenge started May 1st and ended Sept 30th.  We (Colorado Springs Cycling Club 2014 team) had 147 riders listed on the team and 117 logged miles during the Challenge.  For the entire challenge we were #1 of the 122 Colorado teams and #12 again of the 1,953 national teams. I will continue to organize and manage our Club team in 2016.  I've made it a New Year's resolution to get more people and teams to participate throughout Colorado Springs.

This ends my 3rd term as president of our Club.  I really appreciate Janine stepping up to become President of our Club for the next 2 years.  The Club is strong at 380 members as we begin our 30th year.  We've done well because everyone is so giving when we have a need for volunteers and ideas.  I'd ask everyone to continue that spirit for our new leadership team.  The Club is dynamic (beyond riding bikes) and there are many things that we will consider in our future.  Come join us as we continue the ride.

Remember that a stop sign means STOP, let's make sure we put a foot on the ground before riding on.
