Wednesday gravel road ride - CANCELLED

The rain has mostly ended but the sun hasn't come out to dry out the roads nor warm up the air. I won't be leading the ride tonight but don't let me stop you. If you really want to ride, just do it! Hope to see you next week under better conditions.

Sunday Polly Ann Ride 10/15- Cancelled

The long range forecast is not looking good right now, with rain forecasted both Saturday and Sunday. Still and all, we'll keep an open mind and I will cancel the ride no later than 8:30 on Sunday if it is a no-go. If we are riding, meet at Everest Coffee shop as usual 10:00 and watch here for updates.

Continued rain through the last week has the trail soaked and the chaince of rain yet today, means we should cancel.  I will spend the day building my ark

Cancelled - Saturday B-Group Depot Road Ride

Team,

Given all the weather input, I am convinced that Saturday morning weather will be like today... a saturated swamp.  Therefore, I am cancelling the Saturday B-Ride and moving on to the never ending list of home tasks.

Next time....

Fall Back 40 Call For Volunteers!

The Fall Back 40 is just a little over a week away on Sunday October 8.  We are still in need of volunteers especially in the SAG department.  Currently we only have one volunteer for SAG.  With 6 routes we really need at least 3 SAG drivers out at a time patroling the various routes.  3 key people myself, Jeff and Russ will be out of town for the Fall Back 40.  If you could volunteer some time on Sunday for SAG it would really be appreciated!  Remember you can ride and eat lunch free when you volunteer.  Please go to the sign up genius link on the Fall Back 40 page, it is at the bottom of the page.  Pick a shift you like and sign up.  Also all the donuts, brownies, cookies and bananas and cider you can consume as you visit the two rest stops on your SAG route.  Oh and we have really good coffee at the Hall.  So don't forget your travel mug!

Thanks,

Anne  FRCC Tour Director           cycloanne@yahoo.com

Polly Ann ride Sunday Oct.1, 10:00 am.

Please join us for another great ride on the Polly Ann.  Meeting at Evergreen's Coffee Shop in Oxford.  Some folks riding to Leonard and back.  The group that heads out to Dryden and back will pick up some dirt roads to take us to Dryden.  Work was done on the trail a few weeks ago and the section to Dryden from the County Line Rd. is really rough and not enjoyable.  Meeting up at Evergreen's after the ride.

Hope to see you,

Anne             cycloanne@yahoo.com

 

I will be unable to lead the ride Oct.8th and the 15th.  The ride will continue watch for a posting with details.
