There is light at the end of the tunnel regarding the Pandemic and we and have a need for more ride leaders. Taking over a ride or filling in you’ll get plenty of support from me and the board. We have lots of routes “in the can” to use or if you want, planning your own route is not hard and really fun!
Contact me at email@example.com or 913-957-6769.

You have been made aware that the CSCC Board of Directors has experienced conflict over the last few months through several emails from different Board members. This has led to the resignation of some Board members and officers, most recently the club’s President. Currently there is only one club officer remaining. This, of course, has created a leadership void that means the club cannot conduct business. Three of the past club presidents have communicated and agreed to collectively start a process to seek input to reestablish a working team to become the club’s Board. We are not sure, at this time, what the exact steps will be, but we commit to communicate with the membership regularly over the next weeks as a plan evolves. Our challenge over the last few years has been a lack of commitment to lead (as Club officers, Board members, committee chairs and ride leaders), so it will be imperative that all members evaluate their capacity to step forward as leaders within the club.

Try some yoga in your spare (stay-at-home) time. Yoga connects breath to movement. It's a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and relaxation. Yoga is known for it's ability to promote relaxation and ease stress and can bring many benefits to your mental and physical health.
Below is a YouTube link for a yoga class with Adriene tailored to the cyclist. It focuses on stretching the calves, glutes, lower back, upper back and chest. Enjoy!

The 3/26/20 state stay-at-home order issued by Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has been amended to include bicycle repair as an essential service. Bike shops around the state can now stay open to serve their clients.
As soon as Bicycle Colorado reviewed the stay-at-home order and realized that bike shops were not considered to be essential services, they got to work. They contacted the Governors office, CDPHE, Colorado counties and other high ranking organizations to have the law amended to include bicycle repair shops as essential services. Many thanks to Bicycle Colorado!!
