The Fresno Cycling Club has formed a partnership with the California Classic Weekend to help bring you this year’s edition of the California Classic Freeway Ride. It is the only ride of it’s kind where bicyclists have the opportunity to ride 10 miles of freeway that is closed to motor vehicles as well as enjoy a great ride into the beautiful foothills and valleys of Fresno County. Your support of this ride will directly bene t FCC in many ways, not only monetarily but in notoriety. is ride is in it’s sixth year. Organizers Mike Herman and Nancy Tally are excited that we are able to partner to bring this ride to the bicyclists of the valley and beyond. I look forward to seeing everyone out on the ride.

THE PREZ SEZ JULY 2016
Greetings fellow bicyclists and members of the Fresno Cycling Club.
What a great 40th Annual Climb to Kaiser we had this year. Ride Director Jennifer Collins did an outstanding job of putting it all together. Of course all our fabulous volunteers make the event happen, it is what makes us stand out among all the other rides put on by other clubs and organizations. Jen has received such great feedback from riders on how helpful our rest stop folks and SAG drivers were, and how much fun they had doing the ride which helped many deal with the challenge of the ride itself. Thankfully we had no major injuries this year, one person fell and thought he broke his collar bone but it turned out to be okay. Thanks also to our sponsors who support our Club events and especially the Climb to Kaiser.
The next supported members ride for the Club will be the Tour de Lakes on Saturday July 30. Check the ride calendar for specifics.
This month, July, our new Newsletter Editor Bill Reddington will be taking the reins of The Rough Draft. Bill has been a member for several years and has been the editor for other organizations newsletters, we are thankful that he stepped up to fill this vacancy.
I don’t have to tell you how hot it gets here in Fresno, so many of our rides will be early morning and later evening rides. Some will be at elevation as well to avoid the heat. Check the ride calendar in The Rough Draft, on the website at fresnocycling.com, and the ride calendar at RidewithGPS.com.
There will be information forth coming regarding upcoming water pipe construction by the City of Fresno that will affect our riding in the areas of Auberry north of Copper and Belmont from Armstrong to Trimmer Springs. As soon as we get information about the construction begins we will update you. We will be forced to use alternate routes for many of our rides for the next couple years. Stay tuned!
That’s it for now. Hope to see you on the road.
