Another week of great rides & events

Lots of activity this week!

With the upcoming MS City to Shore (I know, that’s all we ever talk about right?) we’ve been encouraging team members to participate in additional rides outside of our weekly Sunday routine in order to prepare themselves.

This past Thursday evening at 5:15PM seven Team Evesham members left from the Evesham Township Municipal Building for a 21-mile ride through Evesham Township and Medford. Prior to the ride Dennis showcased his beautiful new bike (first two photos)…


We also had 21 riders show up for the Team Evesham Friday morning ride. Niles started this ride with three riders earlier in the year so this is pretty big…

Sunday was sunny (as the name implies) and warm. We had 38 riders join us for our 35-mile Hainesport, Flying-W and the Double Dare route. Jodi is getting used to the new clips she purchased. I’m not kidding when I say she’ll be riding with the Aviators soon…

Paul’s wife Sue joined us and we hope she continues to ride with us…

A big “Thank you” goes to Pete for leading the “A” riders (Aviators). Not an easy job. Thanks Pete!!!



This week’s upcoming Rides

So far this week we have the following scheduled rides in the Team Calendar.

  • On Thursday, September 8th a Team Evesham ride will leave the Evesham Township Municipal Building parking lot at 5:15PM. The ride leader will be Brad Davis. We’ll keep this “B”-paced ride to approximately 20 miles in length since we are up against the sunset and definitely don’t want to be riding in the dark.
  • On Friday, September 9th at 8:00AM our regularly scheduled Friday morning ride will depart from Panera’s  in the Promenade (500 Route 73 S # E15, Marlton, NJ 08053). This will be a “C” paced ride and Niles Commisso will be your ride leader.
  • On Sunday, September 11th at 8:00AM Team Evesham will meet for our next regularly scheduled ride. We’ll gather in the parking lot in front of Panera Bread which is in the Promenade (500 Route 73 S # E15, Marlton, NJ 08053). As always we leave in three groups, the Cheetahs (C-pace), Barracudas (B-pace) and Aviators (A-pace).

  • We are less than three weeks away from the MS Society’s City to Shore ride. This ride takes place on September 24th & 25th. So far we have reached 99 riders. This is the most well-supported annual ride that Team Evesham participates in. 7,000-plus riders make it the second largest MS ride in the entire country, one that you won’t want to miss.
