A very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, or Holiday of your choice, to you all.  As we wrap up 2016 I encourage you to consider an end of year donation to our Club.  The San Diego Bicycle Club is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization recognized by the IRS.  Donations made online, or mailed and postmarked, by December 31, 2016 are tax deductible for the 2016 tax year.  (Please consult your tax professional for confirmation.)  Additionally, your membership payment may also be tax deductible, as well as your mileage if you drive your car/truck/vehicle while engaged in volunteer activity on behalf of SDBC.  Our Club does great work in the cycling and racing community, and we very much thank you for your volunteer, leadership, membership, and financial support!

Thanks and Happy New Year!
