2012 New Year's Day Ride

It's that time of year again.
 Get that first ride out of the way.  
Grab your bike and tell a friend. 
You can't ride all year if you don't ride New Year's Day.
 Depart from the Decorah Bikes Parking lot.
10:30 a.m. Dull!
Dress accordingly - it won't be hot.
I suggest shorts and socks made of Wool. 


You might say "I haven't been training!" 
Well guess what. "Neither have I".
I don't care if it Snowing or Raining.
Me and my buddies, we're still going to ride.


So put your hang-over in your pocket 
if New Year's Eve put your mind in a Fog
Randy's Store has a full docket, 
and completely stocked with Hair of the Dog.

See you Sunday

La Crosse Human Powered Trails need our help

SOME PEOPLE JUST DON'T GET IT and would rather have houses built than a beautiful piece of forest. The La Crosse trails are potentially in trouble and need your help. Please go to the link below to find out more information and sign a petition to stop a housing development on the LaCrosse trails.


http://signon.org/sign/park-not-development


The La Crosse City Council is considering whether to designate a city owned tract of land on the bluffs above the city, Upper Hixon Forest, as a park or to use the land for housing developments. This petition is to encourage them to designate as a city park. This will protect the land and the shared use trails that have been built there by HPT volunteers. These trails already provide a greater positive economic impact for the community than any housing development would likely provide. Please send a message to them in support of the park designation before January 10, 2012. This petition will be delivered to the mayor and every city councilor.

FrostChester is postponed - PWC is set

FrostChester is postponed - PWC is set


There has been some comments in the past about the conflict of the Pugsley World Championships and CIRREM taking place on the same date.  It is unfortunate, I've heard great things about CIRREM and I wish we could have made something else work, but we couldn't.  I'm sorry, you're just gonna have to choose to race your 3.7 + inch tire bike or your 1 - inch tire bike.  Regardless, you have a couple of options to have on fun on February 25.

Saturday - Pot Luck - December Meeting & Dec 17 FrostCHESTER

Hey All

This Saturday (Dec. 10) we will hold the December meeting as one big happy family above Oneota River Cycles.

Pot-Luck Style.  Feel free to bring food - I'll be impressed if we end up with something other than equally large piles of High Life and Doritos, but it will be a pot luck none the less.


And for you fat bike loving freaks (such as myself) - FROSTCHESTER - is the first of an annual event that we will be holding here in Rochester.  All you need is a fat bike or someone who has one and how to have a good time outside in the ice and snow.





It will be more of an end of the 2011 season gathering - with a few business items to talk about.  I haven't been to town in about a month, but the snow is on the ground in Minnesota.  If you were thinking about taking up snowboarding this winter - keep in mind - bikes are faster.  Any bets on if Doug could take this guy on skis?
