President's Message for February
Looking for more rides?

The Progressive Series begins mid-March. This year we are running a parallel series for the Cinderellas, Recreational Riders and the Advanced Group who are after bigger hills and challenges. Riders may aspire to hook up with the Advanced Group who are training for the Death Ride, DMD, Breathless Agony and other ginormous rides. At all levels, the Progressive is a good way to meet other riders, start slowly, build endurance, strength, conquer the hills, experience new and favorite roads. It begins with shorter distances and flatter roads. Each week more miles are added and the terrain gradually becomes more difficult. No matter what your goals or riding pattern is this series offers something for everyone.
Why mess with registration on a hard to get in riding event. Cherry City will host a deviated version of the Wine Country Century on May 4th the day after the actual Century starting from Francis Coppola Winery ending with a dinner option at Rustic.
