It’s that time of year for what has come to be known as the Annual Snelling/Merco pre-ride. This year’s event will be held on January 25, 2014. As an added bonus, this year we are fortunate to have 4 time US National Road Race Champion and Grand Tours rider Freddie Rodriguez from the Jelly Belly racing team joining us. Sadly, Merco is no longer with us, so the route will follow the roads for Snelling and Turlock Lake Road races. See the following link:
All are welcome, however this will be a show & go, drop ride and pace will be dictated by the group. It is possible there will be follow vehicles – but no guarantees so be prepared. Ride will be held rain or shine. The ride will leave at 9:00am from Henderson Park @ 3325 Merced Falls Rd, Snelling, CA.
***NOTE: This is not a FSB Cycling Team or CdV event…with the thumbs up from the previous organizer, we are just helping to get the word out about this fantastic annual ride, promote cycling and reach as many area racers as possible. Thanks!***
Mark your calendars, the team photo is scheduled for Saturday, February 8th at 8am. Pictures will be taken in front of our title sponsor, Fun Sport Bikes, located at 1700 McHenry Ave in Modesto (McHenry Village Shopping Center). An all team ride will follow with details to be announced on the Yahoo group email list. Please wear your new kits for the photos. Thanks!
