A few tidbits
The homepage had a facelift last spring, highlighted by some wonderful photos from John Kinsey. They’re from the Touristico Giro d’Italia: a nearly month-long Italian cycling vacation several Flyers took in September 2013, guided by 1994 Tour de France stage-winner Eros Poli. If you’d like to see the entire set, click here for weeks 1 & 2 and here for weeks 3 & 4. We should all be jealous.
If you’d like to see your photo on the homepage, send it – along with a description or suggested caption – to the webmaster. Your photo should be at least 640 pixels wide by 480 pixels tall.
The Bedminster Flyers has a “New Member” D ride just for you!
The pace is leisurely and we leave no one behind. The rides last slightly more than one hour over gently rolling, country roads with minor traffic. The object is to have a comfortable, fun experience while being introduced to group riding.
We meet at 6:00pm every Monday (D+) & Tuesday (D) during the riding season at a to-be-announced (by email) location. We always have an air compressor if someone needs air and tools in case of last minute adjustments.
Club membership is $25/single, $30/family. However, you are invited to sign in as a guest for your first group ride. Only a bicycle and helmet are required.
Click here (or on my name below, or on “D-rides” at the top of any page on this website) to e-mail me if you are interested and I will put you on the ride list and keep you updated.
