Adopt-A-Family 2017

Fellow Rhinos, although it's cold outside, we're still busy with club activities.

In addition to the upcoming Parade of Lights (12-16) and of course the Polar Rhino Ride on 1-1-2018, we've once again partnered with the Lighthouse of Oakland County to sponsor a local family in need by providing necessities and a few fun thing too (like bikes!) for the holidays.

Please visit our Sponsorship page and give generously if you can. This year, you can also donate cash in lieu of merchandise, see the Sponsorship Page for more details. Please note that the deadline for donation is the close of business on December 12th, 2017. Donations should be dropped off at Kinetic Systems.

Last year's donation effort was a great success, hopefully we can match or exceed that level of support!

Thanks,

FRCC Officers

Polly Ann ride, Fat Bike, joke Sunday Dec. 3, 10:00 am

Meeting at Evergreen's Coffee Shop in Oxford at 10:00am.  Ride your Fat Bike if you've got one.  Or any mtn. bike or cross bike will do.  Bring along a joke to tell if you are so inclined.  I will work on mine.  My " a ham sandwich walked into a bar and ordered a beer.  The bartender said sorry we don't serve food in here."  Wasn't the hot joke of the day.  We had a couple of zingers though.  Meeting up at the coffee shop post ride for some great coffee and tall tales of the day.

Hope to see you,

Polly Ann ride Sunday, Nov.26 at 10:00am.

Please join us for winter riding on your Fat Bike if you've got one.  Or any mtn. or cross bike will do.  This ride will now be referred to as Fat Bike, Joke Sunday.   We have been sharing jokes on the ride between Leonard and Dryden.  So the joke telling has now become part of the ride.  A really welcome part in the cold weather on that section of trail where you are hoping to keep all of your fillings intact.  So please come with a joke to share.  Meeting at Evergreen's Coffee Shop in Oxford. 

Hope to see you,

It's Back!!!!!!!!

Due to popular demand the FRCC Newsletter is making a comeback.  We are hoping to have the first edition out in mid January-ish.  We are looking for club input.  Do you have a good story from this year, about a tour, ride or race that you would like to share?  Or how about something you have coming up in 2018?  It doesn't need to be a novel!  Or a picture you would like to share from a cycling adventure you did this year with a few lines or more describing it.  Looking for any and all things cycling related.  Details will be coming soon on where to send your article, blurb or picture.
