2014 Holiday Party

The Club's annual Holiday Party was a catered affair held at the Pinery on the Hill on Sunday, Dec 7th. Social Chairperson, Bill Gast, started organizing it last spring. The picture is from our party in the main ballroom looking to the east at downtown Colorado Springs. 112 people (of our 420 members) attended the party on a beautifully clear night. The moon rise through the ballroom windows came as we started to go through the buffet line. Bill used the later revealed list of Club mileage leaders as the order of tables released to the buffet. The program included pictures of the past year, Club mileage leaders, Club Community Service Award winner, annual Club Volunteer of the Year winner, Bill Gast's Club Ride Picture Jeopardy game, and then music by Wes & Joan. What a great evening!!

Tour d'Turkey

The annual Tour d'Turkey Sunday Social Ride was Nov 23rd. This year's ride was led by Allen Beauchamp. The 8 riders were a 400% increase from last year even though the weather (and snow) were remarkably similar. Matt Meuche won the turkey, Chris Conboy won the turkey bacon, and Jean Zeh won the turkey lunchmeat.

Hi All,

The Holiday Party was Sunday Dec 7th at the Pinery on the Hill.  BVBF income allows the Club to discount this party for Club members.  This might be the last year that the Club hosts this party as a major catered event.  See the news item in the left column for details of the evening.  Bill Gast (our Social Chairperson) put together a super way to close out the year.

Festival of Lights Parade was Saturday Dec 6th .  We had 10 people ride as our unit of the parade.  It was MUCH warmer than last year.

BVBF 2015 will be June 6th

The Club meeting held at Ivywild Nov 4th was attended by 45 people.  The minutes are posted in the news column.  The next meeting will be Jan 6th at the Citizens Service Center.


Allen Beauchamp is leading the December Sunday Social Rides.  The Social Ride start location is 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 ( jeanzeh@yahoo.com ) 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 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.
