Help With Storage

We have 250 kids’ helmets we need to store this winter. They are the helmets purchased with the Jeff Dusenbury Memorial funds raised from the incredible donations from all of you!  We are planning an event for the spring centered around bike safety to honor Jeff and distribute the helmets to kids.  The Club’s storage unit is not big enough to store these along with all of our race stuff.
Please email us at bike907@gmail.com if you can help.
We can send you more details on how much space is needed (it is not a huge amount).

Triple Threat – last race of the season

Triple Threat! 

Sunday, September 7th at 9:00am

Check-in: 7:30 – 8:30am
Race start: 9:00am
Parking at Potter Valley Parking area (just like for Potter Hill Climb)
Register now!

One of our racer’s mom affectionately calls the Triple Hill Climb — the TRIPLE THREAT!  We thought is was fitting!

Come on out for the last Road Division race of the season and the final race in the Hill Climb Series.

The Triple Hill Climb (or Triple Threat!) is a leg burner but a race that earns riders some serious bragging rights!

This is hands down the pinnacle of hill climbing for the 2014 season.

Course: Race starts at the Potter Valley parking area, riders head up Hill #1 – Potter Valley Road then back down. Then across the Old Seward Hwy behind Potter’s Marsh, up Rabbit Creek Road to Hill #2 – up and down Clarks Road. Enjoy some respite from climbing with the ride across Hillside Drive and then up and up and up and up to Hill #3 that ends just below the Glen Alps trailhead.
All categories will do the entire set of climbs.

Volunteers:  We could use 3-4 volunteers for this event.  Email us at bike907@gmail.com if you can help!  Latte on us as a thanks for helping.

Hope to see you on Sunday!
