These events will be coming to a road near you. Some of these are paid events sponsored by other clubs. Check out the Ride the West Calendar by Greg Lozaga.
Bass Lake Double • October 10th
This pay-to-ride event, sponsored by the Fresno Cycling Club, is part of the sanctioned Double Century events. The ride begins at the Clovis Veterans Memorial Hall in down town Clovis. The course opens at 3:05 a.m. and closes at 12:00 midnight. Visit www.basslakedouble.com for more info. No other FCC club rides will be posted for this day, as a lot of our active members will be working this prestigious event.
Annual Sacramento Salmon Run Ride • November 6th and 7th
FLATLANDER RIDE + SMALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL = WIN-WIN by Al Graves!
On October 24, West Hills College in Coalinga will celebrate homecoming, which will include a football game against Mendocino College at 1:00 p.m. I (Al Graves) am planning on riding my bike from my house in NW Fresno to the game, 65 miles. Would YOU like to ride with me? ALL details have been arranged IF up to 12 FCC bike-mates would like to ride with me AND attend (free of charge) a community college football game.
Your personal items will be delivered to the school in Coalinga; your bike and accompanying personal items will be safely locked in an enclosed "box" trailer during the game. Upon arrival at the college, you will be able to “freshen up” and change into something that “doesn’t stink”. After the game your bikes will be brought to my house in Fresno by me and you will be driven in a school van from Coalinga to my house. Your only cost will be energy (15 mph target average speed, flat ground all the way!) sweat (of course) and lunch at the game--dogs, burgers, tri-tip sandwiches made by the softball team. Along the way, we will rest and re-fuel for 15 minutes every hour.
PLEASE . . . reply soon. IF this is a GO, I want to insure that all details—including route, rest stops, departure times/arrival times, local support and safety—are properly determined. IF there is a flood of interest, FCC members who rode in the 2014 or 2015 West Hills Metric Century rides will receive first priority. Further details will be provided to confirmed participants via email by 10/17/2015. Thanks, Al Graves
