Hi All,

Progressive Dinner Ride was Sunday Oct 26th, NOON, from Acacia Park.  70 people came out and rode on a beautiful afternoon.

The Holiday Party is Sunday Dec 7th at the Pinery on the Hill.  A Club EMAIL Blast went out Tuesday with the sign up details.  BVBF income allows the Club to discount this party for Club members.  This might be the last year that the Club hosts this party as a major catered event.  Prices are discounted for members that sign up early, and the prices go up in two weeks - so sign up early.


Club Meeting was Tuesday (10/7) at the Garden of the God's Citizen Service Center in our usual 1st floor conference room by the west door (Rm 1019 - Event Room A).  The minutes are contained in the news item in the left column.   The BVBF committee provided a wrap up of the 2014 June event.  BVBF 2015 will be June 6th.  The next Club meeting will be at Ivywild Nov 4th (election night away from the Citizen Service Center)  Snacks at 6pm and meeting at 6:30p.  This will be more of an Open House Information meeting. 

Barb and I spent 10 days on the road in mid Sept.  We ended up in Sacramento CA for our oldest son's wedding.  We are still recovering around the house from the trip, things were fast and furious when we returned.  We rode our bikes around the South Lake Tahoe and Sacramento trails.  While in Tahoe, we rode up to the Heavenly Ski area parking lot and commuted between CA and Nevada a few days - just because we could.  The wedding was in the Sacramento Cathedral and all the events were within walking distance of the Sheraton - it was a special weekend for us and our family.  Lots happened in the following weeks AND Barb finished her working relationship with Hancock Fabric, retired in a sense that she is planning to not work any more.  We might get to ski more this winter.


Kerry Hefta and Bill Gast are leading the October Sunday Social Rides.  The Social Ride returns to its normal start location at Acacia Park.  See the Ride Calendar for details.

Ride chairperson Jean Zeh says we still need Ride Leaders to step up for the Saturday Road Ride and Sunday Hill Climb Rides.  EMAIL her ( jeanzeh@yahoo.com ) with comments, questions, or to volunteer. 

National Bike Challenge started May 1st - and ended Sept 30th.  Our team name is Colorado Springs Cycling Club 2014.  We had 115 team members and everyone posted miles.  We finished in 8th place among 1,265 national teams for Sep and 12th for the entire Challenge In Colorado we were the #1 Team in Aug and Sept, and finished 2nd for the entire Challenge behind the Bike Commuter Cabal that has 117 members but only 5 from CO???

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.

A STOP sign means stop at those intersections.  At least put one foot on the ground.  This applies to everyone riding in the group, not just the ride leader.
