2017 NBC Club Team Individual Totals

CSCC had a team in the 2017 National Bike Challenge (NBC) that ran from 5/1 through 9/30. Our team finished 18th in the national challenge and #1 in Colorado. This year NBC used STRAVA as the database manager, replacing Endomondo. This led to massive confusion, especially within our team. We brought it to their attention, but there was no solution this year. We hope that is simplified next year. Bottom line is over 200 members were on the CSCC team within STRAVA (now 236) but only 109 were imported to the NBC team data base. Imagine a single digit ranking if we were all included. The link below takes you to the data on the 98 people that NBC said entered data. Great job to all.

Rides This Week

11/17/2017

We're coming up on the holidays, but there's always time to ride. There have been some great days this fall to get out, and I see on Meetup that many of you are. I'm off the bike and onto physical therapy for quite a while, but my shoulder is doing better.

Please take a moment to provide your feedback on the City's Bike Master Plan (See the news item to the right). Your opinions are crucial to a successful long-term implementation of the kind of bike-friendly city we want Colorado Springs to become. 

And SAVE the DATE - January 6, 2018 we'll be holding the CSCC New Year's Kick Off Party at Tap Traders. Instead of a party in December, just when everyone is so busy and venues are so expensive, the Board thought we'd have the CSCC "post holiday" party instead. This will be a more relaxed and casual affair. Look for more details soon.

And with the New Year will come changes. Members have been voting for the new President, Vice President, and Treasurer - the positions will change over January 1st. And we have a new Ride Committee Chairperson - Heather MacDonald. Plenty of fun and new rides will be available: check out the "Cranksgiving" ride this Sunday on Meetup.

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