President’s Comments

Charlie Czar

Dennis Struck is leading the August Sunday Social Rides from Acacia Park.  See the Ride Calendar for details.

Lee Murphy's 3rd Annual Mystery Bike Ride is 9 August.  See the Ride Calendar for details and to RSVP.

Work to repair the Sinton Trail 2013 flood damage between Centennial and Chestnut was completed in late July.  Rock reinforcement was put on the eroded curve, a new fence installed, and a pavement cap makes it a hard surface ride.  Unfortunately, recent flood events left sand/mud on some of the lower portions of the trail.  Note that it is still a good ride for skinny tire bikes.
 
Dublin Blvd is now paved between Peterson Road and Marksheffel Road.  It is a major east-west connector through the north side of town.  You can park at the old FREX parking lot (Woodman and Corporate and Mark Dabling) and ride from there all the way pass Marksheffel on paved and fairly “bike friendly” Dublin.
 
The US Pro Challenge Bike Race is coming to town.  Be out there and watch the race in Colorado Springs on Thursday 21 August.  See our Web Site News item for the latest details and Club participation. 
The Club Board of Directors meeting was held at our house on 24 June.  We covered a lot of topics, but I'll just mention one here.  Three members were officially added to the board in accordance with our By-Laws.  Ginny Barber fills the empty 3rd Member at Large position for 2014.  Dan Martin and Randy Susman were approved to the Web Site position and are transitioning that position from Bob Smith over the next year.

National Bike Challenge started 1 May.  Read more about it in another article.  Team CSCC 2014 is doing well, but could use a few more people to join, ride and log miles.

Dave Horne is back at Liberty Heights in room B-13 and welcomes visitors.  Hours there are 8am to 8pm.  Larry Wilson (313-969-0605 larry.wilson.co@gmail.com) is home recovering from his accident on Fountain Blvd.  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 all will 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.
