Letter From the EditorJanine Hegeman near Mt Princeton Hot Spgs.
So now it is on to all of the other delights summer has to offer - mainly, let's hope, more sunshine! There so much riding to do. If you haven't checked out the calendar lately, please take a moment to check it out, as well as the "Links 'n' Spokes" column in this edition of the Bent Fork Chronicles. There are rides galore posted on the calendar that are CSCC rides (you'll get miles for them), and numerous events and other rides listed too. The Starlight Spectacular and the free Bike to Work Day Breakfast are all coming up soon. Be sure to register for these events that continue to bring visibility to cycling in the Pikes Peak Region.
Racing season at the Velodrome in Memorial Park runs June 1 through August 31, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Races start at 7 p.m. If you haven't been, ya gotta go. There are competitions featuring athletes from all around the country, as well as local racers, and the pace is fast and furious. The Madison races are my personal favorite - fun to watch! Peddle on over there, bring a picnic dinner, and enjoy!
Miles, we are adding up lots and lots of miles...as of May 19, 23,956 to be exact. If you haven't done so, PLEASE send an email to Jean Zeh email@example.com with your BVBF miles - those count, too!
And you may have read it on the webpage - CSCC needs a Ride Committee Chair, and I have considered it. That would mean somebody would have to step up to take over as newsletter editor...any takers? I have developed a postion guidebook for the newsletter editor position so you will know exactly what is expected of you, and I would of course be available to assist when Murphy's Law kicks in! With this web-based format, it really is quite easy. Give me a shout with any questions. What ever your plans are for the upcoming months, I sincerely hope you have your best summer of riding ever. I'm planning on it, I hope you'll join me and COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE!
