Join us at the Fall Bonfire
Our Fall Bonfire is coming up on November 14! Just like the past couple of years, we’ll be holding it at Mary and Dave Simon’s country estate near Battleground. Keep you eyes on the newsletter for more information. The club provides main dishes and soft drinks, and members bring side dishes, deserts, and beer and wine if they wish. It’s always a fun evening, so put it on your calendar!
Annual Cookie Exchange
Another WRCC fall tradition is our Cookie Exchange at Hodson’s Bay. This year it will be on December 9, so bake up some cookies and bring them to share. And even if you don’t bake cookies you’re still welcome! It’s always a fun event as winter sets in, featuring an informative talk about bike gear or techniques. Join in the holiday spirit!
WRCC Annual Banquet
Don’t miss out on our annual winter banquet, coming up on February 20. Once more we’ll be having it at the Lafayette Brewing Company, in their awsome upstairs space. Good food and company, goofy awards and mileage t-shirts, not to mention use of the pool tables! It’s free for members and always a good time. Their beer, while not included with dinner, is always a treat.
There is no charge for current members, who also receive our t-shirt if they have qualifying miles. So, if you membership has lapsed you might want to get on it and make sure that you’re a member in good standing. The banquet alone is worth it!
Your membership need to be renewed on an annual basis, and you should receive highly personalized (ok… automated) messages when it’s time to renew. Just follow the link in the e-mail and pay through Paypal (you don’t need a paypal account, any old credit card will do.) Or you can just pay the old fashioned way, and send in a check to

Introduce yourself on rides, make new friends and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Learn from your new friends: there are group riding skills that may be new to you.
If you need new gear, remember that we have a member’s discount at Hodson’s Bay.
