Beat the Clock … and Help the Bicycle Sundays 2015

It’s official – the new crew led by Jeromy Cottell and Pen Velo has taken over. This is one of the last posts on this blog me. The new crew has access to the blog, but they are in the process of setting up their own information system. This blog will remain online for record-keeping and historical results.

Here’s a copy of Jeromy’s email to the NCNCA list:

All,
First I would like to thank Carola Berger, Patt Baenen, and the entire BtC staff for starting and running such a great event series.  It was really nice having a time trial event on the peninsula and the proceeds were going to great cause.
For 2015, I would like to announce that the Peninsula Velo cycling club has stepped in to continue this time trial series.  The dates we are aiming for are below.
#1 – Sat Feb 14th
#2 – Sat April 25th
#3 – Sat May 23rd
#4 – Sat July 11th
What’s not changing:
Pretty much everything.  We will be using the exact same course (out and back along Canada Rd) and be staging in the same location (just north of Woodside).  We just hope that we can continue to provide the same quality event that you have come to expect from Carola, Patt and their team.
What is changing:
Peninsula Velo currently supports a great event that benefits that Livestrong foundation called Ryan’s Ride.  That event is run in conjunction with the Burlingame Criterium.  If you would like to support the Livestrong foundation, I highly encourage you to become involved with Ryan’s ride. http://www.ryansride.org/
Proceeds that are generated from the Beat the Clock series will instead go towards funding of the Bicycle Sundays program run through the San Mateo County Parks Department.  This is a program that closes the north end of Canada Rd to cars, allowing kids of all ages to walk, run, skate, bike, or anything else every Sunday morning.  More info can be found on their website. http://parks.smcgov.org/bicycle-sunday
Registration for the first event (Feb 14th) will be open soon, and I will send out another announcement once this is the case.
I look forward to seeing everyone out on Canada Rd this year.
Best regards,
Jeromy
Peninsula Velo
