May 2012 Presidents Paceline

Wow what a first quarter of 2012!  It is already May and the last presidents paceline was back in February – where does the time go…  We have been busy and done so much in just over 4 short months!  Follow are the highlights:

  • TOSRV was a success with about 200 riders and next years event is already set for April 20-21 2013 and will be even better!
  • We have a new club website and brochure
  • We have the highest membership count in years and new members are still joining every week.
  • Continued work by our advocacy committee including ongoing meetings with the city/county planning on making the our bike route network official and work with the Ton2 KCCI group on establishing a city/county/CRTPA recognize bicycle advisory committee as a unified established platform for cyclists to engage our local government.
  • National Bike Month activities have been planned for May – check em out at  A big thanks to Karen Lowen and other volunteers!
  • 501c3 paperwork is done (man what a lot of details to gather and a special thanks to Laurie Koburger for getting our last 3 years of financials documented!)  We anticipate submitted in the package to the IRS before June.


I have likely forgotten something but wanted to go ahead and get something out to everyone to keep you informed 🙂

More exciting club updates are coming so spread the word, get involved, and continue to have fun with bicycles!
