We’re growing!

For the third week in a row we’ve surpassed 100 riders so there are bound to be a few crazy people in the crowd. This week we had 103 dynamic riders join  us for a 30+ mile trek to Johnson’s Corner Farm (a long time team favorite  – think “cider donuts”) and past two airports. The temperature was excellent for riding and most importantly everyone had fun. Well, everyone who had cider donuts (I had two).

We want you to know we are going to great lengths to continuously improve the experience for our riders. This Saturday our ride leaders will be attending a three-hour ride leader safety training course from the League of American Bicyclists. This is the premier cycling education and advocacy group in the entire country and we want our Team Evesham riders to be as safe, law abiding and courteous as they can be. Please remember to listen to your ride leaders at all times. We’re here to ensure everyone’s safety and pleasure during our rides.

Sandy also sent along this interesting article he’d like to share with everyone regarding New York City bicycle lanes and the ever growing support for bicycling as a means of exercise and transportation. Also he’s looking for a hybrid bike (size 58) if anyone’s looking to sell (sandy@teamevesham.org).

Finally there were more than a few beautiful new bikes purchased this week by team members. Two are pictured here.

Okay right but this is the new Star Wars Land Speeder bike I’m looking to buy…
