SSFTA ANNOUNCEMENTS
SSFTA Spring BBQ & Potluck - 5/3/14

The sky is clear, the birds are chirping, and if you look real hard, the hills in the foothills are green! It must be time for the  the SSFTA Spring Barbecue and Potluck! Get your bike cleaned and your favorite side dish prepared for our BBQ potluck on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at Lake Ming! Look for the club booth near the campground entrance, where we had our October Halloweenie Roast.

We will start the day with two group rides rolling out from the Lake Ming parking lot at 9:00am. We will have two ride leaders and sweepers for the intermediate and casual groups. The club will be providing hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks, which should all be ready by the time the two groups get back! Bring your bike, family, and your favorite side dish to share at this family friendly event!

Contact the club at info@ssfta.com if you have any questions and join the facebook event to keep up with any updates. 

 

SSFTA Road Rides - Thursdays

We are all about cross training (or just mixing up the social fun) so come join us Thursday evenings for a road ride.  No pressure to wear spandex and go ahead and throw on that Camelback and helmet visor!  Just leave the mountain bike at home and bring/borrow something with skinny tires.  Ride starts from Thorner Elementary at 6:00 p.m. and will be lead by Eddie Gonzalez! Lights are suggested as the ride will be rolling back into the parking lot close to dusk. The route will include the bike path and back through Hart Park and will be about 20 miles long.  Route may be altered some days.  As with our mountain bike rides, no one gets dropped.

Email the club if you have any questions.
