Volunteers Needed for Monday Mornings

If you have a free weekday morning and want to have a fun urban ride with both public service and recreational aspects, join Meals on Two Wheels!

Meals on 2 Wheels uses bicycles to deliver meals to elderly or disabled folks. Based on the Meals on (4) Wheels program it is sponsored by Elder Care Services (ECS), a non-profit group. 

Volunteers Needed
To participate, you would need to commit to fairly regular participation one morning per week.  Currently we really need people to assist with Monday morning Deliveries but other times are also available.

How It Works
Meals are delivered by two person teams. A team consists of one cyclist with a trailer (the “trucker”) and one cyclist designated the runner. The team rides together to Elder Care Services, picks up the meals, and then rides a designated route. The trucker hauls the meals, and runners take the meals to the recipients.  

The team meets at a designated location to start the ride and usually ends with a stop at a local coffee shop afterward. 

To Join, or for more info call Chris Lacher (510-5575) 

The Bike Buddy Program
How to Become a Bike Buddy

Step 1: Take the Cyclign Savvy Course: https://register.cyclingsavvy.org/findaclass
 

The Sustainable Tallahassee bike committee has determined that everyone volunteering to be a bike buddy mentor should attend the Cycling Savvy course prior to registering as a Bike Buddy on the Commuter Services website.  It is important that we are all giving new commuters the same safety advice and road cycling instructions.  Chris Lacher, CCC’s representative on the Sustainable Tallahassee Alt Trans committee, highly recommends the course for any cyclist and was impressed knowledge and commitment of the instructors (Karen Lowen is a 100% cyclist now – no car!).
 
The Cycling Savvy course was developed for the Florida Bicycle Association – see course descriptions below.  Note:  If you sign up for all three classes at once it is only $60.  Please contact Amy Mann at amann@infinonline.net or 850-339-9189 if you have questions or concerns about the course or becoming a Bike Buddy.”

Step 2:  Register as a Bike Buddy.  More info on that is forthcoming.

Festivities will begin at 8:00 AM with a recreational road ride (click here to view the classic 25 miles Bastille Day route). Note too, that the area offers incredible off-road options including the Lafayette Heritage Trail, Cadillac Trail, Magnolia Trail, Loblolly Trail, and using the new bridge over the RR tracks access to Alford Arm.

The picnic will begin at 10:30 AM following the rides. The club will provide entree, drinks, plates, etc. Please bring a side dish, salad or dessert and this is the event to bring that special dish to share – that’s where the real food comes in! The food at CCC potluck events is incredible. Riding and eating are the prominent talents among Capital City Cyclists, followed closely by culinary skills.

There is a playground near the clubhouse and families are welcome to join for the picnic.  We hope to see you there and if you need more information contact CCC VP Mike Yaun at:  michael.yaun@gmail.com or CCC President Zach Finn at: zach@cccyclists.org or 850-545-6406.

The Piney Z Clubhouse pavilion:
The pavilion is behind the Piney Z Clubhouse in the Piney-Z subdivision east of Conner Boulevard; the address is 950 Piney Z Plantation Rd, Tallahassee, FL 32311

The Piney-Z subdivision is located between the Lincoln High walk-bridge that crosses Conner Boulevard and Apalachee Parkway (Highway 27).

There are three entrances into Piney-Z from Conner Boulevard. Turn at the second entrance. This is Heritage Park Boulevard.  If you are coming from Capital Circle on Conner Boulevard, Piney-Z is just past the walk-bridge on your left.  If you are coming from Apalachee Pkwy on Conner Boulevard, Piney-Z is before the walk-bridge on your right. If you pass the walk-bridge, you’ve gone too far!

Proceed to the traffic circle. You will exit the circle to your left onto Piney-Z Plantation Road.
The clubhouse is located on your left, just after you exit the traffic circle. There is a playground next to the clubhouse. There is plenty of parking in front of the clubhouse and adjacent to the clubhouse by the pool.

See you there!
