Welcome to 2014 folks! We have a newly elected board and we’re all fired up to get thing rolling again for the 2014 season. We’ll be continuing our popular First Saturdays rides and picnics – look for those to start once Mother Nature seems done with her Winter wrath…hopefully by April. We will also be hosting some additional rides and clinics – keep an eye on this blog and our facebook page for upcoming events. A new structure to the racing team is emerging – if you are interested in racing your bike, just speak up and we’ll help you get on track. Of course we will be helping to promote and attend trail work days throughout the year. And finally – we are excited to be deeply involved with a new event that will take place within Patapsco Valley State Park later in the Fall – the 1st annual Patapsco Epic.
Several committees have been formed – so if there is something that interests you or you think may be fun, please join a cause or shoot us an email with any questions you may have. All of this is possible because of YOU, the Old Line Velo members, and your participation. Thank you and let us know how to make this club work the best it can for you!
To join or for more information on any of these, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or John.E.Russell2@gmail.com with your interest. A committee chair will respond to your request.
