Post Holiday Party

Our club post-holiday party is scheduled!  The date is January 25th, from 6 until 9 pm at Charlie's/Anazeh Sands on 28th Street.  As we get closer, let us know if you can make it.  The club will be providing appetizers.  They have a full menu for those who would like to get more.

Hope to see you all there!  We'll do a quick club officers election for members (let us know if you're interested in a position!), but otherwise no club business.  Just talk about last year's adventures and this year's plans.  Guests or newcomers are welcome!

Or head over to our group page at!

Our club meetings are open, so stop on by to check us out!  Anyone with an interest in cycling is welcome and we'd love to have you.  Besides the food, there will be some discussion of our plans for the rest of the season, so stop in to learn more.
