Jeff Prescott named 21 CVR members he recognizes. Can you top that?

The Stowe Bike Club Wednesday Time Trials have finished for the year, so this week, I joined the Wednesday speed workout to force myself to continue to go hard once a week. Apparently, I just cannot push it unless somebody besides myself says “GO”. I am happy to report that the Tuesday runs and Wednesday track workouts are both going strong. I met new people both nights this week. If you are looking for a change of “pace” this fall, join one or both groups. The only regulars that I saw at both runs are Mack Gardner Morse and Manny Sainz.

But by then Sue Hackney will probably be back out there again. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.
If you see any problems with your score, contact Jim Flint. If you don’t see an X next to your name in the volunteer column, remember you’ll need to get one to stay in the standings.
