29th annual frozen water bottle ride

The 29th Annual Frozen Water Bottle Ride was Jan 1st at 10am. 29 people pushed off from the University Village Parking lot under an overcast sky. It started snowing about 10:45 (3 hours early). Everyone got back and 20 of us shared lunch at BJ's Brewhouse. It snowed more while we ate. The Picture is of Charlie Czar's bike parked on the patio. There was snow covering the CSCC bottle and ice inside. Bob Smith started this ride in 1987.

2014 Dave Horne Community Award

The Club presents a special Community Service Award in some years to people in the community that greatly facilitate cycling. There was no honoree in 2013. In the Summer of 2014 the Board of Directors voted to name the award after Dave Horne who provided so much help and spirit to the Club and had died last summer. The Board also agreed to make an award this year to the organizer of the Chick-fil-A Heroes Ride & Walk for all the riding opportunities provided during the summer. The award was presented to Club member Torie Giffin. Charlie and Barb Czar (R & L{back}) present the award to Torie and her family.

Hi All,

I will lead the early March Sunday Social rides.  The Social Ride start location is at Acacia Park.  See the Ride Calendar for details.  The snowy weather forced us to cancel the Feb 22nd ride.  Mar 1st is going to be warmer and only a 20% chance of flurries.

The CSCC Board of Directors Meeting for Feb 24th has been cancelled.  Roads in general did not improve on Monday and the roads in our neighborhood are not easy to drive on unplowed snow and parking was going to be a huge problem.  We'll bring our best reports to the annual March Club Business Meeting on Mar 3rd.  We have proposed changes to the By Laws to present at the annual meeting.

St Pat's Bike Ride and Parade are coming soon - Mar 14th.  Read the news item on the left column.  This is a Club fund raiser that Janine is organizing for us.  We sent an EAMIL blast Feb 9th with details and sign up instructions.  All riders and helpers can ride their bikes in the bike unit in the Parade.  The Club will also have a booth in the Parade's Health Expo Friday Mar 13th at the Pikes Peak Center.

The Membership Club meeting was Feb 3rd at the Garden of the Gods Citizen Service Center. 
Featured presentation was about riding the Nachez Trace.  Look for meeting minutes to be posted on the news column shortly

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 are going well.

National Bike Challenge (NBC) 2014 added tabs for the first months of 2015.  Our 115 riders can enter their miles since last October.  NBC runs monthly individual and team totals.  These added fields do not change the challenge results which ended 30 Sept 2014.  The Club has been in the top 10 teams for most of these post-season months (with 600-800 teams still reporting rides).

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.
