The meeting of May 6 was short but very very sweet.
Don't forget the Iron Man Texas coming up. The club is responsible for manning the south sector. We are short 20 volunteers. Events can only happen with the help of volunteers. You can sign up on club website. Volunteering is good for the soul.
Kevin Franklin gave a report on the recent activity of the Race Team. April was busy and May looks to be very busy as well. The team was very successful in representing the club across the area in the Houston Grand Crit and other area races. The team is always looking for new talent, so if you have an interest in riding with or joining the race team, please contact Kevin Franklin.
Also Bike The Woodlands day is May 17. The "Bike the Woodlands Coalition" will have a booth at Starbucks on New Trails and Research from 7 to 9 am. This group has been recognized by the Woodlands Township as an advocate for Cycling in our town. Please show your support for cycling in The Woodlands.
Many of us were enlightened by our guest speaker, Burk Claire. Mr. Claire suffered a broken neck in a cycling accident and against the odds is now back at work and drives himself. He expressed gratitude for his endurance training for giving him the physical and mental stamina to get the most out of therapy.
The meeting came to a close with the usual handing out of goodies.
Dr. Anthony Greene will be the June Speaker. Please come if only to socialize with people who share this interest.
