In this Issue

This week's update was prepared last Friday since your faithful editor is participating in RAGBRAI from 7/20-7/26. Consequently there is no news, except me on TV!

Select a link on the left to see what is happening this week.

Be sure to check our website and social media pages for more information.

SDBC Member in the News

Carter LeBeauWhile preparing for RAGBRAI here in Davenport, Iowa I went on a ride with fellow SDBC members Alyssa and Daniel and a local bike club - Quad Cities Bike Club (QCBC). They are running the charter that I will be traveling with throughout RAGBRAI. At the end of the ride we were videoed for the news and for brief moment - a few seconds on the clip - you will see me proudly wearing my SDBC kit. I'm on for about 2-3 seconds at 1:45 into the clip. Link to clip

The clip mentions Carter LeBeau who rode in the first 41 years of RAGBRAI. Carter passed away last year and one day of the ride is dedicated to him. The name may be familiar to you since he is the father of Carol LeBeau a former San Diego news anchor. Carol is here and will be riding as well.

This probably belongs in Other Iems of Interest, but heck I'm the editor and nobody stopped me from making this a featured notice.

The clothing committee worked very hard in negotiating prices with Pactimo. Despite almost across-the-board price increases on garments, we're keeping the prices of many popular items the same as last year. In cases where we have raised prices, we have kept the increase as small as possible.

For Sale: Ay-up Complete Lighting System

Click for larger image Click for larger image

I am selling my Ay-Up complete lighting system because I got a new kit for a gift. I used these lights for night MTB rides. They provide plenty of light to have a wonderful night ride. The light is bright and clear. You can read about Ay-Up lights here:

These lights are also very good for road riding commuters. The kit has tons of stuff. 3 batteries for all occasions, chargers (including car), mounts and etc. The kits retail for $380+shipping brand new. The batteries last a long time. I've never had my lights run out of juice on a night ride. $150 is the price so don't send me messages with other offers. The lights are guaranteed for life and practically indestructible.
