The kick off event was a success! About 40 folks showed up in addition to capturing the event on a stream to share with club members who could not attend. Setting the stage for a great 2022!
We will look towards 2022 on Feb. 8th from 6 to 7pm at Criterium bicycles. Join us at the Kick Off Event to learn more about upcoming plans.
As the club opens back up for 2021...some of our best events are coming back online. One of our best events, the Hump Day ride (Wednesdays in the summer) has transformed into the Over-the-Hump Day ride (Thursdays in the summer). Find out more about events that are open to the public on the events page.
Plus, the plan for this season, is to have the Crit Cafe ride the first Thursday of each month (June, July, Aug & Sept). This will have a shortened ride followed by time to drink, eat and socialize.
SoCoVelo's Board continues to meet monthly to discuss a safe plan to reopen events in the Spring of 2021. Plans continue to fall into place to restart from where we left off and to do so in a safe and effective way.
First step is towards moving the club's annual kick-off event into a virtual format on Feb 18th!
For those members (and non-members) who have Zwift accounts you can join a standing Zwift meetup session. Almost every Thursday at 5:05pm.
If you'd like to join, search for Adam Jeffrey [SoCoVelo] on the companion app and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure to be invited to the meetups when they occur.

Club members jumped in a virtual chat during our usual Wednesday "hump day" happy hour! No bikes but a few drinks...more folks joined but here's an early shot below...
Strange times right now...the club is essentially frozen in place. All the typical events are on hold as we look to do two things 1) find ways that folks can participate in new/creative events that provide for everyone's safety and 2) monitor the situation and wait for when and how we feel we can reopen in the future. If you have any questions about what the board is thinking or thoughts about creative ways to hold events please email: email@example.com. Everyone stay safe!
We set out on the 40 mile look in really warm weather for 8am in March. But the first part of the ride was a bit too easy as the wind would remind us later. A full breakfast was needed to power us back into a roaring headwind. But thankfully all make it back safe thanks to it shifting to a partial cross wind for the final stretch back to the car!
A group of SoCoVelo members braved the cold on a winter's night to help out Kids on Bikes at the Pedal Station. It wasn't glamours but we knocked out some projects that just needed to get done!
On Thursday evening returning, new and prospective members met at Red Leg Brewing (one of our great sponsors) to find out what's on tap for 2020! A solid turn-out holds promise that our 11th season will be the best one yet. Find out more about joining here.
