Adventure on the Danube

Phyllis and I will be joining a group of six other friends for a 13 day bike trip along the Danube River from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary.  We fly out tomorrow and begin the ride on Sunday.  My daughter, Erika has set up a blog for us to documents our travel. 

Please feel free to check to check on our progress. 

We return on September 7 and please save the next day (September 8) for the Eleventh Annual Football Nostalgia Ride.

volunteering and the Four Star Bike Tour

For many CCC members, volunteering is a way of life.

Congratulations to Kathy Schubert on her Mayor's Bike Advisory Council award for her longtime advocacy work.  It was good to see her at the Bike to Work rally.

Bryce Sabin deserves our congratulations as Active Transportation Alliance 2012 volunteer of the year.  He got his award earlier this year at the volunteer thank you party.

The Four Star Bike Tour is coming up fast, and they could use more of our volunteer help.  The need for course marshals is especially urgent.  They help guide riders along the course and may answer questions as needed.

This year's routes (12, 22, 35 and 62 miles) go north from the UIC campus.  If you can help, there's still time to sign up as a volunteer.

Thank you for all you do - as a CCC member and a volunteer.
