Q. Will you post the route ahead of time? Has it changed from last year?

A. Yes, the route is posted on our website & Facebook page. We do have a new route this year so we hope you enjoy the new scenery.

Q. I’ve never ridden your course before.  How many SAGS or bathrooms?

A. You will not go hungry on our route! We try to have about 10 SAGS stationed through out the county. Most of the SAGs have a bathroom available & you will go past several convenience stores on our route. At the Riverfront Community Center we will have a celebration SAG. A real meal to reward you after all those energy bars!

Q. Can I register the day of the event?

A. Yes you can! No matter what incentives we’ve tried in the past we still have over half sign up on the day of the ride.  It’s the nature of the beast that we decided to embrace. HOWEVER, if you want a t-shirt or a hot meal at the end we recommend signing up ahead of time so we can do our best to plan for you!

Q. Do you have a hashtag?

A. Sure! Use #BBCR18 on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook and we’ll all be able to see each others photos. You can also post them on our FB page.

We look forward to seeing you and hope you have a great ride!

Thursday morning ride series in Parkville available to LBC riders

Club members Al Mueller and Jim “Coach” Mathis recommend this weekly ride as something LBC members might be interested in.

The ride leader is Art Loepp, who organizes a Thursday morning ride which starts in Parkville Mo., about 20 miles from Leavenworth. We contacted him and he welcomed riders from LBC to join him on Thursday mornings.

Detailed information about the rides is available on his blog, Thursday Morning Northland Bike Ride.

So, what have you done for me lately?

At the recent LBC Annual Meeting, Board President Bill Cole talked about the Club’s activities in 2013 and improvements in operations, particularly the dramatic increase in club-sponsored rides compared to the previous year. The outline of his short talk, “REFLECTIONS” — Leavenworth Bicycle Club in 2013″, is attached below.
