COS St Patty's Day Ride and Parade

The Club helped the Parade organizers again this year by organizing and road marshalling the St Pat Bike Ride. Janine led the Club organizing over 40 Club volunteers on the morning of Mar 14th. Over 250 riders came out for 1 of the 3 rides and over 50 joined us in Unit #19 of the City's parade that started at noon. This was the best parade weather in years!!

CSCC Booth at St Pat Parade Health Expo

This is the 4th year that CSCC had a booth at the Expo (Fri, Mar 13th). People pass by as they pick up their run and ride bib numbers. We present Club literature, state bike booklets and cards, BVBF material, and run Club and St Pat ride photo albums on computers and the Club projector. (That was Torie's Chick-fil-A booth behind us on the back wall.) Torie, Doug, Charlie, and Larry spent part of the day working around the booth for the Club.

Rides This Week

Hi All,

I will lead the early March Sunday Social rides, Allen Beauchamp led on Mar 1st.  The Social Ride start location is at Acacia Park.  See the Ride Calendar for details.  The annual Spud Ride was March 15th.

The annual March Club Business Meeting was on Mar 3rd.  It was attended by 31 people.  The charts used for the review and the official minutes are posted in the News Column on the left.  Voting on the 4 proposed By-Law changes was announced by EMAIL and began March 8th through this Club website

St Pat's Bike Ride and Parade was Mar 14th.  Read the news item on the left column.  This is a Club fund raiser that Janine organized for us.  Over 40 Club members pitched in to make the over 250 riders' ride through the streets a safe one.  Over 50 of them rode down Tejon in the parade.  This was a fund raising activity for the Club so we have a BIG THANK YOU to our volunteers.

BVBF is June 6th.  Registration opened in December.  Volunteers need to sign up at that site, too.  Look for details in the news column on the left.  Ride signups continue to do well.

National Bike Challenge (NBC) 2015 went active in early March.  I am still finding my way around it.  So far it looks like everyone on last year's team can log back in and start entering miles in the practice months of March and April.  New members can start an NBC individual profile and sign up for our team (still named Colorado Springs Cycling Club 2014).

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 appreciate calls, EMAILs, or visits from the Club.


Remember that a "stop" sign means stop.  Let's at least put one foot to the ground.  When riding in a group, everyone needs to stop, not just the ride leader.
