    Amy and Gary Presentation on Bike Touring - March 22, 2023

    At the recent member meeting, Amy and Gary gave a presentation on their recent cross-country bike tour and gave a lot of great advice. It was very interesting and educational, so we decided to upload a video of the recording you can view here: Gary & Amy's Cross County Bike Tour - Member Meeting Presentation

    Huge thanks to Amy and Gary for sharing!

    Ride Leaders and Sweepers

    We need YOU! As a club we need to do a better job of setting and maintaining the pace for our rides, especially the C group. Many potential new club members have been turned off by the ever-escalating pace of the C rides that always seem to be too fast. We are doubling our efforts to train and equip ride leaders and sweepers to help us be the welcoming, friendly cycling club we all want to be.

    Please consider volunteering and/or helping when called upon. The training isn’t onerous, and you can be part of the solution. We will be augmenting the C routes with designated regrouping points to help slower riders catch up and help the group stay together.

    Wanda’s Ride - August 12/13, 2023

    Don’t forget about Wanda’s Ride this year, August 12th with the 13th as a rain date. We have confirmed the event will take place at Grey Rock Sports Grill this year. Reservations will open in May.

    Jerseys for Sale

    We still have 2 FCCC jerseys available for sale: one is Men's Large, the other is Women’s Medium. The cost is $71.

    Are you interested in buying a different jersey, bibs, jacket, or other club-branded product? Please let us know via email We are starting to plan another sale. There are minimum order quantities that we have to meet for each type of item, so we will only offer those with enough demand.
