2014 Eagle Mount Cycling Club Summer Ride Series

Riding with the Eagle Mount Cycling Club is a great opportunity to ride bikes with a fabulous group of people.  Our spunky group consists of several handcyclists (primarily folks with Spinal Cord Injuries) and several volunteers on road or mountain bikes.  Our routes are usually around 15 miles with a moderate tempo.  If you’re interested in riding with us, please email our pedal powered coordinator, Jessie May, jmay@eaglemount.org.  See you on the road!

The Payden Memorial Ride

The Payden Memorial Ride is quickly approaching, Saturday, July 19th.  This is a fantastic charity ride that our gang has ridden for many years.  The route is approximately 45 miles (much downhill/flat) and, in my opinion, has the best snacks at the aid stations.

This year we are meeting at Brackett Creek Campground at 8:00 a.m. 

VOLUNTEERS – We need you for this ride!  The more the merrier are welcome to join in the pedaling part, but we also need a few people to shuttle vehicles.  If you’re interested in riding our shuttling, please email Jessie May.

PARTICIPANTS – Please let Jessie May know if you will be needing your vehicle shuttled no later than July 15th.
