The new year brings many things for SCBC to do. Please sign-up to help in one or two events.
First, and most importantly, we need members on our FRUIT YARD CENTURY PLANNING COMMITTEE. This committee meets once a month from Jan. – Oct. and helps to organize all the things that make the FYC a success. WE REALLY NEED NEW PEOPLE AND IDEAS for the FYC to continue. The Board Members are willing to help but we can’t do it alone! Bring your fantastic ideas and willingness to work in a group.
Secondly, sign-up to help at one more event through-out the year. We help and support many area rides, have an information booth at many events and support other area causes. I enjoy sharing my love for riding and my concern for rider safety at these events. I hope you can join me, too. We will have a year-at-a-glance sign-up sheet on-line and at meetings.
One of the first events we help with is the Modesto Marathon. We ride through the riders and provide assistance when needed. Its a great way to ride and be an ambassador for SCBC. I need 6 people who will be able to do this – Sunday, Mar. 23.
Thirdly, we need people who are willing to be ride leaders for our weekend rides. We are hoping to be a better support for riders by having someone from SCBC promise to be there. We will be having a ‘training’ night for anyone who might be interested in this new role. From our Survey Monkey results, we can tell this is an area in which we need to improve. More information to come.
Thanks for being such a fantastic group of people to work and ride beside!
By now, you have seen many more of our Share The Road Signs. SCBC, with a donation from Ride For Mom, has begun posting these signs across Stanislaus County.
These signs are going up a few at a time and some of you have requested certain spots for them. We are listening, so please continue to give us your suggestions as to where you need the 47 signs that we bought. We are covering many of the routes that SCBC members ride regularly. We know that there are other roads that need them as well. Thank you for your input to help make our roads more safe for all riders in Stanislaus County.
We had a great turn out on New Years Day! A big thank you to all our kitchen volunteers, SAG drivers and OBS for their support out in Del Puerto Canyon.
Jack had all the details on-line in our weekly RideMinder. Don’t forget to check the Ride-Minder weekly for our club rides and many other area rides. There are rides almost everyday.
You can ride with a group any time – just check the website or the postings on SCBC-Rides@yahoo.com. Remember you can post your own ride intentions and invite others to join your ride!
Happy New Year!
SCBC will be donating $2,500 to the Food For Thought school food backpack program run by Second Harvest. You made this possible through your volunteering and riding the Fruit Yard Century. Thank you!
I hope you have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather by continuing to ride this fall. December has great rides planned including a Christmas lights night ride from OBS on December 14th.
Remember to set aside time for our annual New Years Day, start the new year in a healthy way. We ride up Del Puerto Canyon and have a breakfast burrito at Frank Raines Hall. It is free for all SCBC members and $5 for non-members.
You can even join New Year’s day, eat for free and be a member for the next 15 months! Membership also includes discounts at local Bicycle shops.
Hope to see you there!
Yahoo!! The Fruit Yard Century was a success! Thanks to our fabulous volunteers, chefs and culinary students, we had a safe, beautiful, tasty, and enjoyable ride.
We had 244 riders, 69 volunteers and 1 chefs and 9 chefs -in-training. What a great collaboration! And most of our profits will help to feed children and families through 2nd Harvest’s Food For Thought Program.
You really are making an impact in our community by riding! Way to go SCBC!!
I hope you are enjoying the perfect fall riding weather as much as I am,
