Kit Fitting This Saturday, October 27th

This Saturday, October 27 is the Team’s Kit Fitting Event. This event is done as a courtesy for team members who are not sure of their sizing. Voler has made changes to the material and padding so it would be beneficial for you to make it to one of the fittings. We will have additional dates and times if you are unable to make the Saturday fitting.


  • Saturday, October 27 from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. Club ride to follow at 11:30 a.m.
  • Monday, October 29 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (make-up fitting)
  • Thursday, November 1 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (make-up fitting)

LOCATION (for all fittings):

  • Gerling Applied Engineering, Inc.(1064 Woodland Ave. Suite U, Modesto)

If you’re not able to make the fittings, you can use the Voler sizing chart as a guide –


It is the responsibility of each member to have their application, check (for kit & dues), and sizes to the club no later than November 11. Please note this means in our possession, not in the mail. If we don’t receive it by the 11th, you’ll not be included in the kit order.

If you will not be attending the fitting, but will be dropping off or mailing in your application along with your check and sizes, remember it is very important to include whether you want a Race Cut or Club Cut jersey and also whether you want Bibs or Shorts. The process this year will be the same as last year.


Each member is required to purchase a minimum of one team kit in addition to their $20 membership dues. The club will place the group order which will include EVERYONE’S (members who have completed application and submitted their check and sizes) required kit. All members will then receive the link to the Voler online ordering system. Members then have until midnight of November 12 to log on and order any ADDITIONAL kits and accessories. Please remember this online system is for any and all ADDITIONAL kits and accessories.

October 20th Ride for Members & Those Who’d Like to Join the Club!

The club’s Membership Director will be leading the “Vrieling Loop” ride this coming Saturday, October 20th.  He’s been riding this route for the last 10 years and somewhere along the way it ended up being named after him.  This is a flat 48 mile loop leaving O’Brien’s Market at the corner of Pelandale/Dale leaving at 8am.  An extension is available for those wanting more miles.  This will be a no drop, conversational, winter pace ride and hopefully another chance to allow potential new members to ride with club.  Anyone who would like to turn in a membership application can also give it to me at the start/finish.  We’ll bring a few copies along just in case.  If you know of anyone who is considering joining the club please feel free to invite/bring them to the ride.  Should be a great morning to ride!
