Thank You for coming out and riding with the Central Minnesota Bicycle Club in 2013.
We have a great group of people who like getting together for the fun of riding bikes.
Here are some of the highlights of this past year:
-The pre-determined schedule worked out well- no more ‘Where are we riding next week?’
-Continued improvements to maps and queue sheets.
We set an attendance record at one of the Bowlus rides: 32 bikes!
-The Tuesday Trails group was a success and had great turnouts for their weekday rides.
-The CMBC made a respectable showing at state and local cycling advocacy events.
-A group of CMBC bikers helped with the Morrison County helmet giveaway program.
-CMBC volunteers helped with the Caramel Roll and Caramel Apple Rides.
-Our own ride, the Dam2Dam Ride, drew 60 people in its third year.
-A dozen CMBC bikers took the Traffic Skills 101 course in Little Falls and passed the final test-some will move on to become League Cycling instructors.
-We now have business cards. Let me know if you need some to give to other interested cyclists.
-We are now on Twitter! Follow us @centralmnbike and get the latest scoop.
-We gathered enough information about area dining establishments to be able to publish a restaurant guide.
This is what’s on tap for 2014:
-Finish that darn map and queue sheet project and put them on our website as PDFs.
-The Dam2Dam Ride will be part of Little Fall’s first Open Street event and feature a 50-mile option.
-Keep on doing what we’re doing, spread the word, and promote cycling!
And, of course, we will continue to rollerskate at the Skatin’ Place in St. Cloud Tuesday evenings from 7-9 pm!
I wish you all a Happy New Year and Health and Happiness for 2014.
