Hi All,

Bill Gast will lead the April Sunday Social rides.  The Social Ride start location is at Acacia Park.  See the Ride Calendar for details.  We had 25-30 people a week ride on the last 4 Sundays of March.  It is snowing a lot less now and the sun has been making fantastic Sunday rides.  At the April Club meeting Bill said we were getting real close to setting the July PICNIC date, but he left a mystery where it would be.  Come ride with him and maybe get some hints.

The April Club meeting was held on the 7th at the Garden of the Gods Citizen Service Center room 1019.  The minutes will be posted in the news column shortly.  The May meeting will be on the 5th at the same location.  Snacks start at 6pm and the meeting at 6:30p.

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.

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.

CSCC Board of Directors (BoD) will meet at our house this Tuesday (4/21) - snacks at 6:30p and meeting at 7.  Closing on this year's budget is our main business.  Any Club member can attend - call (266-0776) if you are interested so we have enough snacks.

The Saturday Road Ride hasn't been listed on the ride calendar yet because there hasn't been enough ride leader interest from that ride's message board.  The ride leader selects the ride (can be from the Club's ride libarary), brings some route sheets, presents a safety briefing, gets the riders to sign the ride sheet, and gets them on their way.  You don't have to ride to facilitate the ride leader role.  Contact Jean Zeh (719-433-6872) if you are interested.  Once we have ride leaders assigned for the ride then we'll start listing it on the calendar.


There are only a few slots left for the May 2nd Bicycling Skills 123+ program that the Club is sponsoring.  It will be f rom 10:00 am to 3:00 pm with a lunch ride as part of the learning. Participation is limited to the first 15 registrants. The preregistration cost of the workshop is $10 and includes the “Smart Cycling Quick Guide”, all handouts and a complementary water bottle.  Register for the workshop on the CSCC website: http://www.viethconsulting.com/Calendar/moreinfo.php?eventid=34133 .

National Bike Challenge starts May 1st.  We are still riding as the team called Colorado Springs Cycling Club 2014.   That team already has our riders captured from last year.  Those members just need to log back on with last year's userid and password, and start logging your miles.  New people can join the Challenge and our team by going to https://nationalbikechallenge.org/ .  Call me if you need help (266-0776).  During the March and April practice period our team has been in the top 20 teams in the nation.  Please consider joining and help us stay in the top 20 during the May 1- Sept 30 Challenge.

Peggy Seidel (573-5050 apjbuffalo@aol.com)  is making her way though her cancer treatments.  Ronaele Foss (351-9775  rsfoss@hotmail.com ) left the assisted living facility 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.
