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!

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.

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!
