Notes from the Chairman

by Bob Bernstein

I hope that this finds you all enjoying the pleasures of your wheeled, human powered conveyances. We are continuing to work toward providing you with great opportunities for rides, weekends and other special events. We have had some great weather lately.

A few highlights on happenings around the Club…

Have you tried the new Ride With GPS Club Account? The Club Account gives all PPTC members to RWGPS Premium Benefits when using rides in the Club Account, including customizable cue sheets and turn-by-turn instruction on your smart phone using the free RWGPS App. This benefit is available only the PPTC members. For instructions on how to sign in and log into the Club web site, click here. Other details are available under Our Rides/Ride with GPS Club Account.

Have you signed up for the Backroads Century? There are many activities and events happening in Shepherdstown from Friday evening through the Sunday. There will be a number of rides on Saturday to get you warmed up for the Century the next day. And the After Party promises to be even better than the last two years.

I’ve mentioned that we're adding a Fall Farm and Art Century in Howard County this year. The date is Oct. 22nd. We'll have rides from 25 to 100 miles through scenic roads and farms in Howard County. All riders who are doing the Century will be able to order their own gourmet deli sandwich at the mile 75 rest stop. Your sandwich will be waiting for you at the finish. There will also be some optional stops at art galleries along the way. How can you beat exercise and culture?

If you missed the Tour de France Party, you missed great food, an exciting stage, and a fantastic social event.

If you are still not receiving Club emails, you need to sign up here

I am going to keep this short because it is summer. We should all be out riding our bikes.

Keep the rubber side down.

Bob B.
