Things are looking UP
Daryl Monge
Published on: 5/1/2021
Greetings and welcome to that start of a much better year.
My apologies for not scheduling a kickoff. I've been distracted by family items and didn't real comfortable with a social event yet anyway.

You would start to see regularly scheduled rides show up in the calendar as Show&Go. This doesn't mean there will not normally be a ride lead, but rather that the ride lead may not make a particular date. An example is the recently posted Thursday lunch ride.

Our first major community service planned for this year is working with Hessed House on assisting with bicycle repair for people where a bike is their primary mode of transportation. We hope to have more information soon.

PLEASE feel free to post your own ride. Anyone can post a quick event on the club website.

Watch the calendar for future interesting events like a trail century and bikepacking!
Club Ride Recommendations

We have many challenges these days, but local and state officials have not recommended or required there be no recreational cycling.

We do have recommendations however:
ALWAYS follow your local and state guidelines
MAINTAIN our social distancing. Avoid riding in groups
DO NOT congregate with others at pauses or stops in the ride
Happy New Year 2020

The Annual Meeting is on Feb 22 at Granite City again. Please sign up on the club calendar. You can pay directly on the registration page using PayPal same as our membership system.

Check the calendar for other interesting meetings, including the upcoming meeting on Legal considerations in a crash.

Here is wishing you an awesome 2020!!
October Highlights
Published on: 10/26/2019
There was no Board meeting this month so nothing to report on that front.
We postponed the General Indoor meeting until January. A lawyer is coming to take about your right and responsibilities should an accident occur.
The S.C.A.R.Y. ride took place as usual! It was a beautiful morning!
September Highlights
Published on: 9/16/2019
We have a more than tentative, less than cast in stone schedule of interesting events coming up this fall/winter. Watch the official calendar of events for confirmation and details.
- November 11 Matthew W. Johnson who specializing in cycling law will give a presentation on what to do in a crash and when you may need representation at Naperville City Hall.
- January 13 Club Movie Night at Aurelio's.
- February 22 is the club annual meeting. It was moved to February because of scheduling difficulties.
August Board meeting highlights
Published on: 8/19/2019
The Club 2019 Picnic is at Whalon Lake Sept 7 starting 3PM. See the calendar of events for more detail.

We have finished prep for another round of club Jersey orders. Stay alert for emails announcing the store open. There will be two "try it on" sessions. August 26 at 7PM at Aurelio's and at the club Picnic. If the trial Jerseys arrive in time they will also be at New Glarus.

We are finalizing updates to the Club bylaws. You hopefully will receive the proposed new version in the next month.

We have noted that there have been quite a few rides that have not been recorded in the ride log. Ride sheets should be submitted to and ride leaders have the option to enter the ride miles themselves on the website. Email if you want added for ride log milage entry.
July Board meeting highlights
Published on: 7/16/2019
Here are a few notable items from the recent board meeting
- We will be attending the Naperville Rotary Ride as a club. We would like to find some NBC members who are also rotarians to help with a meeting place.
- The board has a proposal for Club Bylaws updates. Stay tuned for the official final draft for your consideration.
- Some new surveys will be coming out on a variety of topics. Please help us out by replying when the arrive.
- We have started the process to get a new round of Jerseys made. Our intention is to use the current design again.
