Club coordinator: Stan Swallow, 801-808-4426. For those of you who haven’t met me, you need to know that I’m not some young speedy bike racer. I’m over 70 and retired but love to ride, race, and stay fit.
Outside rides: Weather permitting, during the winter, we will schedule “show-and-go” rides on Saturdays, other Saturdays we go snowshoeing. Some of these will be races and some easy rides of various lengths. During the summer we have much longer rides on Saturday.
Cross Training: For good cross training on Saturday during the Winter we can go snowshoeing early in the morning. See utahveloclub.com for information on meeting time and location and if you need to borrow his extra snowshoes.
Club Fees: No membership fee will be charged. The club is not formed to make money (obviously) but is only for the purpose of getting cyclists who like riding in groups together.
General information: If you have cycling friends who are not members let them know about the club and have them complete the Membership Request page at our web site. All club activities will be announced the web site.
