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”.
