THURSDAY, APRIL 29, 2010

FOUR SEASONS BANQUET HALL 5:30 PM

Dinner (6 pm) is $13 per person, payable at the door.

 

Also, if you haven't already, sign up NOW to

continue your support of ChainLink Cyclists by

being a club member in 2010

($10 per person or $20 per family).

After dinner, by popular demand, we will once again hold a

 

"Free-Wheeling Round Table"

of intimate, hands-on, nitty-gritty bicycle information –

we'll have topics such as:

 

how to change a flat tire  (all by yourself!),

using a CO2 cartridge or frame pump

(without any explosions!), 

 

how to adjust your brakes  

(so your bike won't sing better than you do),

 

basic daily/weekly bike maintenance

(so you can "keep on rollin' "),

 

proper Helmet Fit

(shouldnŐt fit like a ball cap – BRING YOUR HELMET),

 

how to use a GPS with your bike

(high tech ways to "get lost"),

 

how to plan a self-supported bike trip

(send us a post card!),

 

how to bike in any weather

(whether you want to or not!)

etc. 

 

Here's how it works -

you will get small-group instruction on a topic of interest,

then, after 20 minutes, head to another "station" to

learn something else new or use as a refresher course.

You will get a chance at 3 - 4 areas of interest!

 

Whether you know absolutely nothing

(about bikes!), a little, or a lot, there should be something here for you!

 

DON'T MISS OUT!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW!

 

Please RSVP to our eVite that we sent out

ASAP so we can prepare - THANKS!

(If for some reason you didn't receive the eVite, then respond here...please!)

 

P.S.  If you can't make it for dinner

you are still WELCOME to roll in later (approx. 6:45) to join us for the Round Table!



P.P.S. Don't forget to invite your friends!

You do NOT need to be a ChainLink Cyclist Member to come!

or email us at chainlinkcylists@gmail.com.

 

P.P.P.S.  ALSO - we will have a "SWAP-A-RAMA" table –

if you have bike things to sell,

let us know and bring them to set out to sell –

this table will be monitored (by "Swap Cop" Chuck Beichel!)

 

AND – We are asking ALL OF YOU to bring copies

(maybe 20-30) of some of your favorite bike routes

(maps or written directions) to

share with others to set out for all to collect!
