Sharon & Dale

While it’s been a wetter summer that we’ve experienced in a while (thank goodness!), there have been a number of cycling opportunities to entertain the mind, enlighten the spirit and exercise the body.  And, have you been logging those miles into the National Bike Challenge website?  The 21014 CSCC team has been hovering around 12th place in the nation!  And, as of 29 July, the cyclists participating in the Challenge have amassed a total of 14,462,055 miles, the equivalent of 30 round-trips to the moon!
Focusing more on our local activities, Sharon and Dale have just finished leading the July Sunday Social Rides.  We were able to ride each of the four Sundays in the month, thanks to good/acceptable weather – some clouds, some heat, a few sprinkles here and there, but all good.  We had successful rides each time; translation - smiles at the end of the ride and no injuries or incidents!  For that, we’d like to offer our thanks and appreciation for all those that participated in the July Sunday rides.  It’s a pleasure leading a group of conscientious and attentive cyclists!
While reading or writing about cycling is enjoyable, it’s not the real thing!  So, get out there and ride!  Stay safe!  And remember that the Pro Cycling Challenge returns to the Springs once again on 21 August.  For more information, go to http://www.usaprocyclingchallenge.com/city/colorado-springs
