Get your Merry on! Join your SFCC friends for our annual holiday mixer!
What to bring? Appetizer (last names A-M) or a dessert (last names N-Z).

Please auto RSVP by Dec. 6th from the email invite already sent to members from Katherine Thompson. If you no longer have that email, you can send an email directly to Katherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking for members and guests that would like to represent the Club in the parade. We will be lighting our bikes with battery operated lights, glow sticks, holiday decor and wearing our SFCC jersey or jackets. The parade pace is very slow and will require many stops and starts so I wouldn't recommend clip in shoes. You can ride any bike, road, mountain, cruiser, etc... If you don't want to ride, you can walk with us; I have a job for you :)
Send an email to Amy Betz at email@example.com if you are interested in participating. I will start an email with the details, start time, meeting place, theme, where to purchase lights, etc...
If you don't want to be in the parade, consider cheering us on.

The Cycling Education Committee(CEC) offers a series of rides on Sundays to promote cycling knowledge, skills and safety. These are "no-drop" rides especially intended for riders wishing to learn about cycling as well as wanting to develop their cycling skills and fitness. They are social rides, generally at the pace of the slowest rider, and have a "sweep" so no one gets dropped. Routes are usually in the range of 15 to 20 miles and not too hilly. All have a short pre-ride clinic about cycling. The names of these rides and ride leaders are:
Cycling 100: Ted Herr
Cycling 101: Rudy Dressendorfer
Please check the calendar for dates and details.
Many SFCC'ers have signed up to join the Sierra Foothills Hiking Group for added cross training, fitness, and fun. This newly formed group invites anyone who enjoys group hiking along the many great trails in the Auburn area. You do not have to be an SFCC member to join.
The hikes are in the 3 - 7 mile range and typically take place in the afternoon (after morning bike rides). Hike announcements are made via an email group and private Facebook page. If you would like to be added to one or both, please contact Kathy Welch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
