President’s Comments

Charlie Czar

Looking back at August, special events included the two Olde Phearts McDonalds breakfast rides, the Club hosting the city on a Monday Dinner ride the week of the US Pro Challenge, and the Club helping Metro Rides run the Bike Valet during the Colorado Springs race day.  Dave Horne passed away Aug 12thSeptember was the month of the Sunday Social Ride new start location test, lots of rained out rides, Barb and my trip to CA for our son’s wedding (which included lots of rides at South Lake Tahoe and Sacramento), and wrapping up the Club’s participation in the 2014 National Bike Challenge.  It has been a fast year, and will continue to be busy.  I hope to see you a few times yet this year.
Here are a few other updates:
The next Bike Club Meeting will be Tuesday, 7 October at the Garden of the God's Citizen Service Center in the 1st floor conference room by the west door (Rm 1019 - Event Room A).  Snacks at 6 pm and meeting at 6:30 pm. 
During the August meeting, the Club received a special Thank You from Susan Davies, Executive Director of the Trails and Open Space Coalition (TOSC) for continuing support of Starlight Spectacular.  See the photo with this article.
