I wanted to start this thread to get things going. We currently to a Tuesday night training session (weather has been bad the past few weeks) for club members. I want to get a weekly easy ride going as well. What day should we do it?
My idea is this, whomever is leading the ride that particular week decides were and what we are doing. I think it could be mtn or road rides. The idea is to have fun, not drop people and socialize, hang, etc while we ride.
The other issue I would like to talk about is race volunteers. As most of you know our club puts on a few races each year. This year we will be promoting the Mtn Harrison Hill Climb on August 9th down in Albion Idaho. We also will be doing 3 cross races this fall (dates to be determined still). I would like the club members to lead one ride this year as well as volunteer for at least one race. This would require a few hours on a Saturday. I want to keep doing these events (we have to do at least one to keep our club status) but need some help. I/we do not make any money at this, and I am hoping that I will at least break even one of these years. I think the last year for cross I finally did. This year's Mtn Harrison Hill Climb is the day before the Ride Idaho event kicks off I believe. Therefore we have quite a few people heading that direction anyway :)
Please contact me regarding what we need to make these events happen, and hopefully to keep improving them. I want to keep these going but do not want to have to keep begging for help or do the large majority of the work by myself. There are a few individuals in the club that always help out, and I greatly appreciate it but I do not want to have to lean to heavily on them either. We do not have club dues that you have to pay, I think helping at one event, and leading one ride isn't too much to ask in return.
Thanks again and see you on the road (or trail).
I would appreciate your thoughts on this all. Please discuss.
