Exciting Events This Month!
The annual Greater Lafayette Christmas Parade will be Sunday December 7. We’ll be riding together with Bicycle Lafayette. And for those that participate… 15 club miles! How’s that for a bribe? Tom will let everyone know the exact time and place.
Our annual cookie exchange will be Tuesday December 9 at Hodson’s Bay. Dan will give an informal bike themed talk, and the shop will offer a special holiday discount. Best of all… Cookies! Bake up a batch and bring them to share and exchange.
Thanks to Mary and Dave Simon for throwing such a great party. This is one way we have of thanking all those club members that volunteered to help out with the Wabash River Ride. It’s also a great way to get together for food and fun as the cycling season winds down. Thanks also to everyone who brought a plate to share, with special recognition to John Clanton and Steve Trott: those guys make some mighty good home brew!
Thanks so much to all of our great volunteers who made the WRR such a success! Your helpfullness and friendliness are what made it all work!
Our next big social event is the club banquet, upstairs at the Lafayette Brew Company on February 21. Don’t miss it!
No home brew, but plenty of good food, beer, and fun!
