Rides This Week

7/31/2017
Hello everyone, hope you are staying dry and enjoying the unusually cool weather. There are a few things going on worthy of your attention:
-VOLUNTEERS ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED FOR THE COLORADO CLASSIC. Stage 1 is coming to town on Thursday, August 10. 300 volunteers are needed, including Course Marshalls for the Men’s and Women’s races. Call 719-634-7333 to register or see the Meetup details. No need to RSVP; call and register with Sportscorp directly. Thanks!
-CSCC is offering classes! Ride Leader Training (Outdoor session) is coming August 12. If you’ve taken the classroom session, now’s the time to finish up and graduate. RSVP here. CSCC needs more ride leaders; if every rider who regularly participates in the Sunday Social Ride stepped up to lead just one ride, just one, we’d have more than enough leaders for the rest of the year. (And you do not have to take the ride leader training to lead a ride).
-The Wacky Ride starts from Larkspur this year, Saturday, August 19. Register and save $5 with Promo code WACKYPC17 at https://wackybikeride.com
-The Dark Side of the Moon Eclipse Ride is August 21. We’ll be heading to Fort Collins for a ride (bring lights) and to experience the full solar eclipse. This should be fun! RSVP now on Meetup.
-The Labor Day Lift-Off Bike Ride and Breakfast is Sept 4. Be sure to RSVP for this extremely popular ride. We take a leisurely route to Memorial Park and watch the balloons lift off then head to Patty Jewett Golf Course for a scrumptious brunch and more balloon watching. More details on Meetup.
-CDOT will host a Midland Trail Grand Opening in mid-September (watch for announcements). Yes it is true! After years in the making, the new Midland trail under I-25 from America the Beautiful Park will soon be available to trail users. CDOT wants to celebrate with us. I know I’ll be there!
-The Tour de Hanover, a ride out on the gently rolling to flat terrain southeast of Colorado Springs, set for September 10. It is a 44 mile route, with 4 rest stops (one of them is a volunteer fire department pancake breakfast!). See details on Meetup.
-Our last CLUB MEETING of the year will be held OCT. 3 at 6 p.m. location TBD. Don’t miss this meeting, as we’ll have an update on the state of cycling in Colorado Springs with Kate Brady (or another city employee), and important news about the November election for CSCC board members.
-Finally, the Progressive Dinner Ride will take place on Oct. 15. This year, we are starting way up north into Briargate. This takes the place of the Sunday Social Ride, and we start at noon; it’s a 9 mile route (one way) no major hills, and we will go as a single ride. This is a potluck affair, and we will have stops for appetizers and salads, main dishes, and desserts. RSVP and let the hosts know what you are bringing. All the details are on Meetup.

Have fun, be safe, and COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE!
