  Tuesday Ride on Sunday!

As promised, since the weather turned nice, tomorrow I will lead anyone who is interested on the route from Tuesday's canceled ride.

We'll leave from the Vallata at noon, head up Jones Road and Waldheim to a series of trails and roads that will take us to the top of Moose Mountain. We'll take the section line over to Old Murphy Dome Road, and ride the frontage trail to the top of Spanky's. Then it's a long downhill that will feel like more work than the uphill. If you've never ridden Spanky's, this is your chance to experience the roughest downhill ride I am aware of in the Valley. This one ranks high on the dumb scale.

Plan on about four hours, give or take. It's supposed to be sunny and sixty, so perfect conditions. Helmet use will be required. Snacks and sodas will be provided at the end.

Dave J.

  Owing to heavy rain with showers predicted into the evening, I'm calling off tonight's Tuesday ride. I've done that trail once in these conditions. It was Type Two Fun that closely bordered on Type Three. We subsequently called it the second dumbest Tuesday ride ever. I was much younger then. I'm getting old and soft now and don't really want to endure that kind if fun again.

If the weather improves later in the week, I'll send out a message and maybe we can ride it Sunday like we did with the ride that was canceled due to smoke.,

  One week from tonight, August 7, is the annual WOW (Women on Wheels) Butterfly ride.
What is this? It's a ride up and down the 4 hills off of Farmers Loop – like the 4 wings of butterfly- you glide up and ride down. Alright, bad analogy, but we still call it the Butterfly Ride. It's the one ride where we invite any FCC members to come ride with us. SCOW (SCUM on wheels), SOW (spouses on wheels), COW (children on wheels) are all welcome. You do need to be a member of FCC (you can get a one day membership) and you need to wear a helmet. Meet and be ready to ride at 6 PM sharp at the Musher's Hall. 25 miles, 3000 feet elevation gain, you can ride all or any of the hills. I will have directions on how we usually ride so you know where most will be going. There may even be homemade cookies for afterwards! Hope to see you out there for this fun and awesome ride.

  Run for Gold. Can any cycle club members help lead the Run for Gold Saturday July 20 at 930 am?
This is a 1 mile RCN race and benefit for the Literacy Council of Alaska.
You would bike ahead of the runners on the Golden Days Parade route to clear
the street of spectators and lead the runners. If you can help
let Run for Gold Race Director Jim Brader know at jimbrader@gmail.com
Thanks, Jim Brader
