Possibly the most important monthly meeting of the year is tonight upstairs at the Rio in the Agave Room at 6:30. A few good souls will talk about why they want to serve on the Overland Board of Directors. Everyone will have a chance to ask questions. The vote will then take place via the internet for roughly two weeks following the meeting. This election cycle we have 4 seats to elect. Thuan, Bill and Lisa have another year left on their term. Pete's term is up but he plans to run again (Thanks Pete!)  If Pete is re-elected, that leaves 3 open seats on this year's board.

If you are interested in running for a seat, please come tonight and be prepared to state why you'd like to be a board member. Be prepared to answer a few questions. And thanks to those of you who will run for the board. I can say it's been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had.

Looking Ahead: Bush Acres, Elections, Stone Temple 8, Take a Kid, and a Trail Fiesta

I'm not sure we could have ordered better conditions for Saturday's 2nd annual 40 in the Fort. And I'm not sure we could have found a better communications partner for the race. The boys over at No. Colo. Amateur Radio Club sure helped ease some stress with their ability to communicate all over the hillside. Great working with them. And of course, we couldn't have done it without our sponsors, especially Poudre Valley Hospital - our event sponsor - and our volunteers. Thanks to everyone for making it a great day.

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is BACK!

We're doing it again! Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day returns to Lory State Park on October 6th. 

Bring your kiddos, bring yourself.

We'll talk about mountain biking, ride mountain bikes, have some good ol' fashioned fun and enjoy a great morning and lunch in the sun.

Singletrack Social Switch - CANCELLED

September 11, 2012 by bikekor

Due to the glorious precipitation, we'll reschedule this week's Singletrack Social at Ronny's house. Enjoy the wet and the cool.

Looking Ahead: Singletrack Social Switch, 40 in the Fort, and a Party

September 9, 2012 by bikekor

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.)

You're Invited to a Trail Party

September 9, 2012 by bikekor

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.  

Mystery guest, Tour de Fat and Patrol Winners

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.

The shifts are short, the event fun, you get a couple of drink tickets and a t-shirt. Thank you.
