May is going to be a busy month for all things bike. Of course we start off with National Bike month. This is the time to get the bike ready for the trails, pavement, or both. We have plenty of great local bike shops to help get you tuned and ready. Whether you’re in Madera and go see Bill at Madera Bike Shop or in town and can visit Ben at Rubber Soul, John at Steven’s, or the crews at Sunnyside Bike shop, Tri-Sport, or the other great shops that support local cycling. And then there is Bike to Work Day! Many local riders will join the movement and take part in this annual event. And finally, I hope you read the article in the Fresno Bee explaining how Fresno is becoming more bike friendly. This is true, but please always use caution because there are still aggressive drivers that can get a bit too close to us. Share the roads and be safe!
Also, there is an opportunity for CCORC members and friends to get involved in a search and rescue type of riding in the local mountains. This is in the working stages so not many details are available yet. I’ll post more when I have information about it.
There will also be a new addition to the Project 321 family!! We wish them our best and are very happy for them. I think Jake has already built a Lefty Tricycle.
There is also the downhill series that is on going so check that out if you can. JP and many others have done a lot of work to try and create another fun local event. Show them support and head out there if you can.
Well that’s all for this month. And welcome back Marvin. We know Fresno doesn’t have that Red Light appeal that Amsterdam has, but glad you made it home safe.
