2017 in review
PMTNR (Plaza Midwood Tues Night Ride) is every Tues at 8 pm from Common Market. We’ve had over 3300 riders this year. Come join us sometime. We ride 10 miles to a Bike Benefits business then ride back 5 miles to the start. You can catch up to us on Glympse if you’re running late. http://glympse.com/!PMTNR
CLT Spokes People in conjunction with Bike Benefits provided 9 Cycling Savvy scholarships in 2017. Let me know if you’re interested in Cycling Savvy or a scholarship or both. Cycling Savvy is a 3 part experiential bike training course held monthly. Details at cyclingsavvy.org.
April is the 30 Days of Biking Challenge. We had several riders in Charlotte make the pledge. Thanks for Adam Raskoskie for heading up the Challenge.
May was the Spring Sub 24 hour overnight bikecamping trip. We camped at Copperhead Island at McDowell Nature Preserve. It’s nice to have the whole island.
August we rode to view the eclipse in Ridgeway, SC. We planned to bike from Chester, SC. We rode most of the way but caught a ride for the last few miles to make sure we got there in time for the full eclipse.
October we had our fall Sub 24 hour overnight bikecamping trip. Eventhough it was raining when we left, we still had about 8 riders. It stopped raining as we got to the campsite at McDowell Nature Preserve on Lake Wylie.
Cranksgiving was in Nov. We partnered with Charlotte Cycles and Loaves and Fishes. About 40 riders collected about 700 lbs of food in 2 hours.
