2016 Funsport Bikes Cycling Team
Thank you again to everyone who showed up for yesterday’s 2016 Team Photo, we had a record turnout of nearly 70%. We appreciate everyone that made the effort and was able to come out, represent and thank our sponsors and show their support for the team. There were many members who traveled quite a distance to join us for what is always the biggest team ride of the year, from as far away as Folsom, Dorrington, Murphys, Merced and San Jose. Special thanks to Ray Prevost for once again volunteering his time and talents to the club and capturing this year’s team on camera. The 75 mile ride after the photo shoot was also a success and well attended – a safe, spirited ride with sunny skies and no rain. We even had a few guests join us and it sounded like everyone got in an excellent training ride. The team rode well and looked great out there. 2016 is going to be another excellent year!
2016 Supported Riders – Perry Johnson, Rich Del Valle, Ben Cota, Robert Cortes, Albert Coble, Michael Wilkins, Pete Schoenenberger, Allen Shaw, James Ruffin, Anna Stewart
Our next membership meeting is coming up on Wednesday, February 3rd at Surla’s Restaurant in downtown Modesto. The focus will be on the upcoming Turlock Lake Road Race, our 2nd team clothing order with JL Velo which opens soon, and much more. Also…the RAFFLE will return with some cool prizes, including wine and gift cards. If you haven’t picked up your kit, we’ll have all of the extra clothing as well as the socks, which can be purchased that night too. We’re hoping to have the new hat order ready to go as well and have info on the NEW team water bottles (better quality and no leaks). And finally, if you know someone who is interested in joining the team, invite them to the meeting and let them know that now is the perfect time to join since they’ll be able to get in on the next clothing order and still race and ride in the new kit. Come early and grab a drink at the bar before the 6pm meeting. Hope to see you all there!
This coming Saturday, January 30th at 8am, is our annual all team photo day. Meet in front on Funsport Bikes in McHenry Village, just as in year’s past. Please be on time and wear only the new 2016 kit. Doug Vrieling will be leading a team ride immediately following the photo shoot, approximately 75 miles, with many options to shorten the route if you’d like a shorter ride. Thanks to Ray Prevost for once again being our team photographer. See you there!
