Get your bikes ready for the season!

Hey Team!
Well - if this weather hasn't convinced you that it's time to roll........what will!?!?!?

(Rumor has it that even the Queen of Fair Weather Riders Katie Clark has moved her bike for the basement to the garage!)

So - here's the thing ...your sponsoring shop wants you to get your bike running smooth and ready for the season so from now untill the end of the month Velo City is offering you 30% off any tune up, service work and/or parts.

As you probably are aware - Jeremy here @ the shop is the Head Mechanic of the Entire National Ride Program, and new-guy-Nate will be working the Rides w/ MC this season.

These dudes know they're way around a bike - that's all we're sayin'.

So - drop 'em off - we'll turn 'em around fast so MC and Coach Did won't have a chance to bug you about why you're not riding!

Ride on!

Here's a colorful way to raise funds to support our ride team. We are raffling off the beautiful quilt. The quilt is a historical replica of the quilt “Trip Around the World” created by Laura May Clark in 1932. The fabrics used in this quilt were made with the support of the Michigan State University Museum. Lowell artisan Barb Dey Porter made this reproduction. Raffle tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00.

The drawing will take place will take place at Jake’s Music Festival in Grand Rapids on April 14th. You do not need to be present to win. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the West Michigan chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Contact Tom or Mary Scheidel for tickets.
