April Events Update!

Hello Cape Fear SORBA. Upcoming events in the near future that I wanted to remind everyone about. Lets get started shall we?

CFSORBA Club Meeting Thursday April 12th beginning 6pm

Cape Fear SORBA will be holding its weekly club meeting on Thursday April 12th at the Long Island Eatery. This meeting is very important because we will be electing new club officials for the upcoming year. Both VP Austin and Secretary Jay are not running for re-election for sure and Treasurer Bryan may also step down with new blood prepared to take over. If you wish to have a voice in how the club moves forward please do your best to attend! If you only make it to one all year make it this one!


Trail Building day at Brunswick Saturday April 14th

Want the good news? The outer loop of the advanced section of trail HAS BEEN COMPLETED. Ok granted there are still some small things to play with but the trail is CUT! Pat yourselves on the back folks, you made this happen. Of course now you must be asking, “whats next?” Well we are now going to build the connector trail that will run from the intermediate loop to the advanced entrance. That is our project for Saturday! The workday will be lead by Greg Brinson. Meet at 9am at the oval parking lot near the picnic shelter. Please bring shovels and rakes, proper attire, food/water, and bug spray/sunscreen. Attend for as long as you can and get there when you can. We’d love to have you! RSVP at the club meetup.com page!


CCORS Race #4 at the Piranha Pit April 15th

The 4th race in the CCORS race series is this Saturday and CFSORBA is looking to take more podium spots. Check out the series page at www.ccors.com for more info about the series. Sadly if you did not register in advance to get on base you will be unable to attend.


CFSORBA Ladies Ride at Blue Clay Bike Park April 18th at 6pm

Join the Dirty Dames of Cape Fear SORBA and go for the ladies ride! This ride is just for the mountain bike girls out there. This is a beginner friendly ride that will break up into groups (that will be lead by a ride leader) based on skill level. So come on out and enjoy riding with other ladies! This ride will be a monthly occurrence on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. RSVP at the club meetup.com page!


TREK Demo Saturday April  21st at Brunswick Nature Park from 10am to 3pm

Come to the Nature Park for a FUN day with Trek Bicycles! Trek will have their full blown demo truck at the park with over 40 bikes to demo! This includes both road and mountain bikes. This means you get the chance to demo some of the TOP OF THE LINE bikes that Trek produces. This includes the Trek Fuel 9.8, Superfly 100 Elite, Lush SL, and Slash among others. A complete list of the bikes and sizes that will be available is at the meetup.com event page for the demo. Come out and enjoy the fun! CFSORBA members will have a booth set up leading rides around the park, signing up members, and hopefully doing a little grilling to!


Doolittle Memorial Ride 11am Sunday April 22nd

As many of you may be aware of, last April Trey and David Doolittle were hit and killed by a heavily impaired driver while out for a training ride on River Road. This ride is taking place to celebrate their life and raise awareness for cycling. The route is 6 miles long and begins at Veterans park in the Ashley High School Parking lot. No matter what type of bike you ride, this is an event that is important to attend. Please come show your support for cycling in New Hanover County by taking part. More info on the Facebook page for the event can be found here: Doolittle Memorial Ride Facebook Page.

That’s it for now folks. Hope to see you at one or all of these events!
