Western NY Bike Festival – Need Volunteers

Posted on | April 27, 2016 | No Comments

The festival is coming together really well with lots of factory demo rigs coming, all of the local clubs signed up, and organized rides and clinics scheduled throughout the weekend. It’s set for Dryer Road park with events running from 9 am until 4 each day. The GVCC is looking forward to the opportunity to reach out to new members by hosting a 20 minute clinic about racing and then an hour long training ride. The idea is to have the ride apply some of the things talked about during the clinic – ex. pacelines, attacks, etc.

For this piece, we need a GVCC member with a few years racing experience to conduct a 20 minute clinic “Road Racing 101″ starting at 12 p.m. Then, that person will need to lead a 1 hour skills ride from 12:20 until 1:20. So altogether, we need someone from 11:45 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m. both days.  Ideally it would be the same person both days too.

The second piece of this event is that the club will have a table and a tent at the event. We need to have some club members man the table throughout the event. We need 4-5 club members each day who could hang out and talk to people. Again, this is a great way to talk to folks interested in racing and get them to try out the club.

If interested in volunteering, please email jeff.lubkowski@gmail.com

Thanks,
Jeff

Hello to all of the new members of the club,

Our first G-Tour event will be on Tuesday April 5th at the Victor Course. We will meet in the parking lot of Victor Egypt Park (13-33 Victor Rd, Fairport, NY 14450). Most riders arrive around 5:30 to give them time to sign in, get their bikes ready and even warm up a little.

When you arrive at the park, you should do the following:

  • Get your bike and gear ready. Please remember to bring a helmet. Expect to ride for about an hour to an hour and a half.
  • Sign in. Troy will have the sign in sheet. He will be wearing a “Premium Mortgage” kit that is black/blue/white. You must sign in each week.
  • Warm up or hang out until 6pm when we will do announcements.
  • Introduce yourself to me (Jeff Lubkowski – Fairport Brewing Company Kit)

All of the C riders will go with Mike Minerva. He will lead the event from that point on.

Please email me with any questions. (jeff.lubkowski@gmail.com)

-Jeff

Posted on | March 21, 2016 | No Comments

With 1 event remaining in the series, there are a few close battles.

In the A’s, it is possible for John to overtake James for first overall.

The battle for Second Place in the B’s is red hot with Matt Smitely and Kevin Howard tied. Luke, Dave, Rob and even Adam have a solid shot at the podium.

Hope to have all of the riders come out for the final event on Saturday!

Top 5 riders for the series in each field should see me after Saturday’s event.
