SBW Picnic was great. Many new members and old friends. Check out the Facebook site for William's photos.
Sadly, former SBW member known by just about everyone in the cycling community, Barney Feigenbaum, succumbed to cancer last week. One of a kind. Will be missed.
The Eliel SBW Clothing store will be reopened soon for a limited number of items such as the Laguna Seca bib shorts, Rincon Jersey, Mavericks skin suit and the shoe covers. We have minimums to hit, so if only 1 or 2 folks want a particular item it won't be remade. The above items are solid. We have had requests for Vests, base layers and long sleeve jerseys too. Please let Matt know if you will be ordering any of these so he can fine tune the expectations for the club store. We are also planning on a sock order- stay tuned for details!
Check out Team News in menu links at the top for Prez Matt and Comm Director William updates to racing results and club news.
SBW/LAVRA track TT yesterday was a popular draw with over 40 names in the morning and afternoon sessions.
World Cup and Paracycling worlds were amazing. Thanks to all who volunteered. See victorious US WC Women's TTT at right. Also Makayla as a Podium Medal Lady, chatting with Sarah Hammer.
Plan is to re-schedule the 2/26 Baxter 2017 TT which was rained out. Date TBD.
SBW Team Ride continues, every Saturday at 8am from Catalina Coffee in RB - but always check FB or calendar for occasional changes. This Saturday 3/18 a clockwise ride around Palos Verdes. Our next Baxter TT is coming up (March 26, 2017) and will be the 6 mile hill climb from Nature Center to the Domes. We will do this section in preparation for the TT. Roll out from Catalina Coffee at 8:00 am. Entire ride will be approximately 40 miles with over 3K feet of climbing. Then hold that appetite for the picnic Sunday 3/19!
Masters Worlds Track is coming in October.
