CRW is slowly but steadily emerging from the winter doldrums. We have had Weekend Rides, Recurring Rides, Devo rides, Women's Rides, a Spring Century, and Hub rides already on the calendar through the Spring and we will be hitting full speed with the arrival of Summer. Indeed, this past weekend, we had the President's Ride and BBQ (thanks to the Kernans), with over 60 riders taking part at multiple speeds, followed by a wonderful cookout (see pre-ride talk photo below). Get on your bikes and join a ride as we have many rides on the calendar. If you are in the mood to lead a ride, post it!
We are planning for another great Cranberry Century this Fall. Pencil in September 18, 2022, which is the date that we're working towards. We can always use more volunteers to help with planning, manning the rest stops, and other aspects of the ride. A retro shout-out to the crew who organized last year's Cranberry Century, who had to deal with extraordinary circumstances when the starting location was denied in the last minute, yet they pivoted on a dime and still made it happen.
Last, a thank you note to Amy Wilson, our long-time treasurer and Board Member, who will be stepping down as of July 1. She has devoted countless hours as a leader of the club, working on our club's finances and making sure that our funds were safe and well cared for. Among the many things she has done, Amy has handled our transition from one insurer to another, protected our non-profit status and filed our tax returns and our required non-profit filings. We will miss Amy's leadership on the Board.
Larry Kernan, past president, is addressing the riders.
