Polar Bear Ride & Chili Lunch
January 1, 2007, 11 am
The LBC invites you to the Polar Bear Ride, a tradition started by Gil Morris. This ride is held each New Yearís Day, regardless of weather. It is actually more of a social event than a ride. Mileage is determined by the weather. The distance has been as little as four blocks and as much as 20 miles. The average distance is about five miles.
All club members are invited; non-riding spouses are also welcome. Even many otherwise serious riders stay inside and drink coffee and socialize. The event is free. No reservations are required. Call AB Sandefur at 425-9463 for ride information.
Chili and drinks (coffee and tea) are free. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
Poor Richardsí Almanac says that what you do the first day of the year, you will be doing for most of the next 364 days. Sitting on the couch or riding ó your choice.
Third Annual Bike Swap Meet
Even if you donít plan to ride the Polar Bear Ride on New Yearís Day, come to the post-ride swap meet to look for bargains or to sell cycling-related items that you no longer need. If Santa made a mistake and left something that was too big or not your favorite color, bring it to swap for something more to your liking. If Santa forgot you, maybe you can find something that suits you. Mark all items with your name and the suggested price.
