CCORS Jersey and Events Reminder

Hello Cape Fear SORBA. I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. I hope that everyone was able to sneak in a ride at some point over the holiday weekend to help burn off a bit of that turkey and stuffing. Cape Fear SORBA has a couple of events coming up this week that we want to remind you all about. First though, the Carolina Off-Road Race Series dates and locations will be announced soon (that is part of what we will discuss later in this post) and with that we have the 2012 series jersey! Take a look…its spiffy isn’t it?

You can place an order from now until December 10th from the ECVelo website: CCORS 21012 Jersey Order Page.

Please support the race series (and the clubs who put it on) if you like this jersey by picking one up. There is nothing like black beard bearing down on you to scare another racer into pulling out of the way.


Cape Fear SORBA will be holding a club meeting on Tuesday November 29th (tomorrow) at the Long Island Eatery off of Kerr Ave. The meeting will go over the upcoming events for next year including the CCORS series, group rides, and social activities. In addition the club will likely be discussing the upcoming workdays at the Brunswick Nature Park this weekend as time allows. Please come out and give us your opinion on anything and everything. We like hearing from our members and we encourage you to come out.


Also, don’t forget that the club will have a pair of workdays this weekend at the Brunswick Nature Park on December 3rd and 4th. Each day we will have different goals in mind. We have already marked off about 600 feet of trail to work on this weekend so its going to be a team effort to get the trail cut in. On Saturday the goal is to clear the trail corridor and do a rough cut of the trail. On Sunday we hope to clean up the freshly cut trail and do some tamping to get it rider ready. Both workdays start at 9AM but you can come out and work at any time you can. The club will provide tools but if you want to bring rakes and shovels we encourage you to do so as well as any small garden pruners. The workday on Saturday is being led by President Greg Brinson. The workday on Sunday will be led by Vice-President Austin Fenwick.

If you have any questions concerning the workday or club meeting please feel free to email We would be happy to answer your questions!

We hope to see you at the meeting and trail work days. The sooner we build the trail, the sooner we all get to ride!

Austin Fenwick
