August 2018



Hi Folks,


It’s hard to believe we are already scheduled rides for August.  The summer seems to be flying by too quickly!  The weather has not been especially cooperative for us this year.  We’ve had several rides rained out and some shortened due to high heat and humidity.  Roger’s Tuscarawas Valley ride was one that I hope we can reschedule for September.  The Epps Alliance/Atwater ride was put on the schedule for August after a rainout in July.  Slowly but surely, we are making our way back to longer rides.  Hopefully, we’ll be able to keep riding into December after our rather slow start to this biking season.


We have decided not to do the Mad Anthony ride as a group this year.  We hope to make it a goal for next year especially for the folks wanting to complete their first century ride.  If anyone has another ride or trip they are interested in, please let us know and we can talk about it at our ride planning meetings.  Our next ride planning meeting will be at the home of Ellen and Ray Thompson on August 14th.   If you cannot attend the meeting but would like to lead a ride in September please let Randy, our road captain, or me know and we will get it on the schedule.


Doug is back and taking us down (or up) the trails every Sunday at 2 p.m.  Please check the schedule for the meeting locations.  My guess is there is opportunity for ice cream here.  Thanks, Doug, for being our rider leader.  Glad you are feeling better!

Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 7th for our club potluck picnic at the home of Leonard and Gretchen Epp.  We will ride if the weather is nice, but we will picnic rain or shine.  More information to follow in the next months.



Warm regards,
