From the Membership Desk - November 2018

Written by Amy Copeland - Membership Director

I’d like to reach out with a huge shout out of thanks to all of our 2018 members. Although I may not get a chance to ride with all of you the things you do out in our cycling community are appreciated. Sometimes it can be as little as riding in a safe and predicable manner among traffic or helping a new rider out of their training wheels opening up a lifetime of fun. We all may play a different roll but it’s the love of bicycling that brings us together.

As the weather starts to turn cooler I start thinking ahead to next year and what exciting new things we will do as a club and how exciting it will be to share these things with our cycling family. When we are not actively cycling with the club it is easy to forget that our annual memberships expire December 31st.

3RVS CARES - Reboot 2018

Written by Mona Will – May 2018

Back in 2001 3RVS's Mike Heyes had a vision to create a grassroots advocacy network for 3RVS. It was named 3RVS CARES, thanks to the creative thinking of Kathi Heyes. 3RVS CARES was an acronym for Three Rivers Velo Sport Cyclists Advocating RESponsibility. A website was then created and developed by Mike specifically for this cause. Jim Schroder, an active member of the club volunteered to be the face for the advocacy section on the website. Together he and Mike worked together to “share news & ideas, confront, and mobilize in the cause for safe bicycling.” Jim hoped that the cycling future would be so bright that he would have to wear “shades”.
