Early June Roundup

Looks like a group of members are hitting the water and putting together a ride this Thursday, June 1st at 5:30 at Lake Milton. Check FB for details.

Don’t forget GWRT is only a week and half away. We will be running the 5k at the dam on Thursday evening presented by Champ Racing to kick off the trial Tour of Western Reserve Triathlon Stage Race. Details below.

STAGE #1  Thursday, June 8  7:00pm  5K Run 

Michael J. Kirwin Reservoir Dam, West Branch State Park




I wanted to get this one out there for the weekend. It looks really fun and for a great cause and it would be nice to have someone from the group out there for this. I’m sure you could turn a tour into a training ride, right? Any takers? Ends at a winery with food. Should be enough enticement for some of you.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to post them to the message board.

After all this you should be ready for the Pedal for Pancakes on June 17th. The amazing social gurus of SVTC have this put together and ready to roll out.  Hit up Lisa Inhouse for a RSVP.

From Lisa’s previous email: As a reminder, Pedal for Pancakes is scheduled for Saturday, June 17 @ 8AM. We will meet at Kirk Road Bike Trail.  Be ready to ride at 8 sharp.  This is a family friendly ride.  Leave at 8, ride your own pace, turn around at 8:30, meet back at Kirk Trail parking lot at 9. Bring the kids!  Afterwards,  we head to the Korner Restaurant for breakfast.  (Everyone pays their own tab.)  I will take a head count before the ride to phone ahead to the restaurant.   If you would like to meet us for breakfast but not ride, let me know so I can include you in the headcount.
