NWCC General Meeting Minutes – May 7, 2021

May 7, 2021 | General Meeting Minutes, NWCC News

The Northwest Cycling Club (NWCC) has returned to sponsoring races and group rides. Thirty-seven people joined in a convivial meeting via Zoom to hear options as we begin to phase in official group riding.

See the 4/27/2021 NWCC Board Meeting for the treasurer’s report. With the exception of stories we shared about fun and not-so-fun group ride experiences, we spent the bulk of the meeting discussing future group rides. Group rides similar to those NWCC held out of Zube on Saturdays and HCC on Wednesdays pre-pandemic will be phased in after a start with smaller (free) ticketed group rides.

Upcoming group rides and races sponsored by NWCC are marked with an asterisk.
