After a year hiatus, the Stone Temple 8 is back at Curt Gowdy on September 29, 2012. REGISTER HERE.
Volunteers are needed. Sign up to volunteer.
Due to the glorious precipitation, we'll reschedule this week's Singletrack Social at Ronny's house. Enjoy the wet and the cool.
Somehow, between the Tour de Fat, a quick trip to Salida to ride Monarch Crest and life, the first week of September slipped by without a newsletter. My apologies.
Luckily there wasn’t a whole lot going on last week aside from a volunteer meeting for the 40 in the Fort. If you missed it and plan to volunteer, don’t worry. We’ll still take you and you can still volunteer HERE.
(By the way, before expenses, the Tour brought in a bit over 85k this year. Once we settle up with New Belgium, we’ll know what the total is for Overland and the Bike Co-op. Thanks again to our many, many volunteers. It was a great day. And thanks again to New Belgium. They are great partners.)
Steve Lacey, the guy who rode the Colorado Trail a few weeks back, would like to invite you and your friends. From Steve:
I'd like to invite everyone from Overland and any friends, who may not be members of Overland, for a day of fun. On Sat. September 22, 2012 Peloton Cycles is sponsoring a trail day with the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas at Reservoir Ridge. Schwag and lunch will be provided for the lucky ones who can attend.
IT IS TOUR DE FAT TIME - AND WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP
The greatest bike party on wheels, the Tour de Fat, is this Saturday, September 1. We rely on the funds for this event throughout the year. Please sign up now to help and ask a friend to come too. This is our final plea. We really do need your help.
If you've ridden Sawmill trail over at Horsetooth Mountain, you know it's a mess. Overland, in conjunction with Larimer County, has been working towards a sustainable and fun re-route. On two upcoming Saturdays we'll be out working to put the final touches on the trail. Saturday, August 4 and Saturday August 18 we'll grab out tools and head out for some fun in the sun.
So far, we have 13 folks for this Saturday and 3 for the 18. We'd love to see 25 people out each day. Can you give us a hand?
If you can, we'll feed you and make sure you have a great time.
If you remember, we've got a little video and photo contest rolling. So far, this video might be in the lead. It's titled "Weston's Dream Day". Thanks for submitting this Greg.
TONIGHT'S MONTHLY MEETING IS AT THE RIO
It's the 4th Monday of the month which means it's meeting time. Our meeting for July has been moved to the Rio Grande Mexican restaurant in Old Town due to the Drake Center's closure. We meet upstairs in the Agave Room which is accessed from the outside. Meeting starts at 6:30 and runs until 8 or so.
Jeff Kerkove, of Team Ergon, will talk about his experiences as a professional racer and showing some great pics, etc. Jeff is currently planning on starting the Colorado Trail Race soon.
NOTHING LIKE A WEEKEND AWAY
Unfortuntately, the Drake Park Centre has closed its doors. We will return to the Rio and meet in the Agave Room on Monday, July 23.
Local pro racer, Jeff Kerkove, with Team Ergon will give a presentation and we will socialize afterwards. Hope to see you there.
I've had the pleasure of getting away a little more this summer. This past weekend we did an adventure race in Breckenridge and then rode parts of the Peaks trail and Colorado trail. If you're not finding time to get out and get away, let's chat. The recharge is worth it.
