CLUB MEETING HIGHLIGHTS


The club had a good meeting on Thursday, September 8. Here are a couple of highlights from that meeting.


Veep Jim did an excellent presentation on creating routes in RideWithGPS. By the way, the club has a "club account" with RideWithGPS and you'll want to take advantage of that. To find out more information, sign into the website and select Ride With GPS Info under the Member-only drop down menu.


The club finances are in very good condition, so we voted to provide grants to three local organizations. 

1. $2,500 to Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop

2. $1,500 to Everett Christmas House

3. $500 to Stanwood/Camano Food Bank Christmas House


The club has a long history of giving grants every year to local charitable organizations with which we have a common purpose or work closely with in club operations. 


Our next club meeting will be Thursday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m. Watch this space for details as we get closer to the meeting.


"Hey, why can't I register for a ride?"

You've heard great things about BIKES Club and you want to ride with us. So you go to the club calendar and see a ride you want to go on. But you can't register. Why not?

BIKES Club is a member-based club. What that means is that only club members are allowed to register for group rides. Maybe you're disappointed because that particular group ride looks really good. 

It's for you that we have a one month membership which only cost $10. Heck, you can't even buy a fast food lunch for $10 any more. And that lunch will only last an hour. So why not have fun for a whole month?!?! Join by clicking this link ...
