[FCC] FCC Annual Meeting report

We held the FCC Annual Meeting on Sunday with about a dozen people in attendance. We elected a new board (see below) and discussed a variety of issues, including ordering of new club jerseys and socks and the club’s non-profit status. We heard recaps of the 2019 Chena Hot Springs Ride, the HooDoo Downhill Cup, and the Bike Swap, and discussed possible changes to those events for next year. We also talked about winter rides being offered by the club and local shops.
Last but definitely not least, we talked about the need for more volunteers and active club members. If you would like to help the club add events and increase ridership, please send an email to Rachael, our prez, at pres@fairbankscycleclub.org. We would love your help!
Many thanks to Trax Outdoor Center for hosting the meeting! And many thanks to Trax Yoga for a great pre-meeting yoga session. We also had a pre-meeting ride. Eric and Matt took to the trails at Birch Hill Recreation Area. They had a blast and both rode up the Birch Hill Road bike path for the first time! They agreed that it was much nicer than riding up narrow Birch Hill Road. The trails at Birch Hill are in excellent shape for biking right now. Get out there before the snow flies and the trails turn to ski-only!
Our new board:
Rachel Kvapil – President David James – Vice President Ryan Kabat – Treasurer Julie Mancill – Secretary Geoff Orth – At large

[FCC] FCC Annual Meeting pre-event ride is a go!

We definitely will have the pre-event ride on Sunday. The trails at Birch Hill Recreation Area are bomber. We’ll start at Trax Outdoor Center at 2 p.m. and ride up the bike path along Birch Hill Road to the rec area. From there, we’ll decide what to do depending on the group.
And if you’re not into the ride, there’s yoga at 3 p.m. at Trax. A social with food and drink at Trax starts at 4 p.m. The meeting starts at 5.
Come have fun, socialize, and consider being a board member. We’ll be having nominations and elections. It’s an awesome way to build a stronger cycling community!

[FCC] Public meeting Monday evening on Rosie Creek area trail proposal

A reminder that there will be a public meeting Monday evening regarding a proposal to improve a 7-mile loop trail in the Rosie Creek area of the Tanana Valley State Forest.
The meeting will be held 7-8pm at the Potter Road Fire Station (3805 Potter Road).
This proposal is modest — improved trailhead parking, better signage, interpretive signs, and maintenance of forestry roads — but state forestry is open to other ideas for trails in that area of the state forest. This could include improving existing roads and trails, and building new trails for a variety of activities.

[FCC] Stacy Says Thank You FCC!

From Stacy Fisk, Equinox Race Director:
Dear Fairbanks Cycle Club, Thank you so much for the continued support of clean up on the trails after the Equinox Marathon! I could not have done it without all of you!

[FCC] Equinox Marathon Clean Up Ride this Sunday!

The Equinox Clean Up Ride is this Sunday! The forecast for the marathon doesn’t look good (except for those looking for bragging rights), but check out the forecast for Sunday:
Patchy fog between 10am and 1pm. Patchy freezing fog before 10am. Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high near 51. Northeast wind around 5 mph.
That’s right, “mostly sunny”! And no worries about that freezing fog thing, because we don’t start until noon!
Details below. Hope to see you there! Questions? Email Eric at fbxtrails@gmail.com.
