A big thank you to those who attended yesterday’s Chili ride. Ten brave souls took to the streets to enjoy a brisk, very chilly, twenty-mile ride. Several others joined the group afterwards to enjoy some delicious chili and fellowship.
Annual awards were presented. Tom Latos received the prestigious President's award for the best new rider. Men’s mileage awards went to (1st place) Terry O’Hair, (2nd place) Tom Latos, and (3rd) Bob Barkley. Women’s mileage awards included (1st place) Janey Drye, (2nd place) Jennifer Dooley, and (3rd place) Cathy Elbaum. CZ award winners were Jeff Hammock and Jill Bartle. Mountain bike winners included Garrett Dunham and Stephen Waid. Tim Munsell was recognized for winning the RideWithGPS club climbing challenge and Terry O’Hair received recognition from his fellow amigos with a special Tough Man award.
A special thanks was also extended to Sarah Lovett for her long support of the club. Her passion for the members and her leadership has been remarkable.
The next official Murfreesboro Bike Club meeting is the annual Kick-off ride scheduled for April 2, 2022. In the meantime, you can stay updated on impromptu rides via the club’s RideWithGPS (RWGPS) account page and other club news on this message board and the club’s Facebook group.
Also please note, when attending any club ride, be sure to click the RVSP button in the RWGPS app. This serves three important purposes. First, to be covered by the club’s insurance policy you must RSVP (RWGPS RSVP replaces the sign-in sheet). Secondly, the RSVP lets the ride leader know who and how many are planning to attend the ride. Third, our club statistician will use this information to track participation for awards once the official ride season begins.
