October 2014 Greetings
This September has been a great month for bicycling activity. We started the month off with Past President Ron Quitoriano’s 8th Annual FCC Tandem/Recumbent Rally. Ron and crew put on a great event free to all club members and guests. There were over 100 riders with the majority being tandems and recumbents.
