May is Bike Month

After two years of effort to stimulate commuting and interest in cycling in the valley, the TRC board is taking this year off. Thanks to Mike for putting on the Bicycle Poker Run last year and to Linda for her outreach to the Chamber and St. Joe’s and for leading her Easy Does It Rides.

We haven’t lost interest. It’s just that we’d rather be riding our bikes. That said, we are still going to be gearing up for cycling season.Here’s what you can look forward to from TRC in May: You can learn more about these from the main page of the TRC site and the Calendar.
