Meeting notes from August 8, 2004.
Upcoming local charity bike rides:
Tri County Hill Hopper Sunday, March 15, 2005 contact Amy Sharp
Junction 505 May 1, 2005 (Regina Hokanson is SAG co-ordinator. Please help!)
Lucky B Bison Ranch early April? Cyclo-cross? Dirt ride on ranch? Ride to the ranch?
Jean Marie proposed sending $100 to Adventure Cycling Association. It was seconded and passed. The free magazine subscription will be sent to Robert Roses shop, Cycles, Etc on University Drive.
Robert Rose reported on the Pedestrian and Cycling Task Force for College Main. Cycling advocate Preston Tyree attended and gave a presentation on bike/pedestrian safety. Short term projects stripe the north end of the street and add (more) street lighting. Long term projects get matching funding, improve drainage and resurface the road through Texas Department of Transportation. By naming the improvements a special project, College Main will be eligible for some (federal?) funding.
Willie Allen reported that there are 64 signed waivers for the time trial series. The time trial series was initiated to earn money for the club currently there is a disparity between what new and current members pay for the series. How should it be resolved? Free if a BVC member? College students pay a reduced rate? Making it a club sanctioned event was put forth, but that was countered with the fact that bylaws will need developed to cover that and may limit participants to members only. Also, is the time trial course OK with participants? Any other locations come to mind? Feed back to Willie on BVC Chat.
Willie brought up the Tour de Dirt which was weather-challenged in 2004. New course ideas? Old courses OK?
Willie wanted to know if lifetime BVC memberships were of interest to anyone - $50? The average lifespan of a BVC membership is roughly 5 years.
Stephanie proposed that we have a table at Forward Fest 2005 in downtown Bryan. More information to come.
