David Bodick, Health Education Consultant for the state of Calif. and SFCC member, has worked on a program to raise money for the cycling community thru the sales of special CA license plates. Visit calbikeplate.com and pre-order a plate with the bicycle logo. The program needs 7500 pre-paid applications to move forward.
Your purchase of the California Bike Plate will generate grants to promote cycling as a physical activity, fund bike skill development and nutrition education at the elementary school level and create safe places to ride through cycling advocacy.
Don't miss this opportunity to improve your cycling skills by attending the Education Presentations coordinated by Charlie Fox.
Our January presentation on Nutrition for Cyclists will be held at Bicycle Emporium's new location - 437 Grass Valley Hwy Auburn (next to Fed Ex and Kelly Moore paint). Feel free to bring a light dish to share. Our presenter, Kristy Corah will have some samples of some of her nutritional treats as well.
Please let me know if you plan to attend so we can accommodate with chairs and treats. Email Charlie Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What: Cycling: 4 rides with a nice mix of terrain...flat (yes FLAT), rolling hills, long climbs/descents
Also: Theree are so many great hikes in this area, we'll try to fit in one.
I hope to follow tradition and have a group potluck on Tuesday evening, June 23rd at the RV park, a pizza party Wednesday evening (at Movin' West), and perhaps a dinner out on Thursday evening.
If you don't wish to camp, I recommend the River Pines Motel (price list here) that is only 1/2 mile away from the RV park. This is by far the best choice for lodging near the campground. Other options are Chalet View and Graeagle Meadows.
If Movin' West is full, there is Little Bear RV Park less than two miles away (although less than 200 feet from the railroad...). And further away, but a very nice park is Clio's River Edge RV Park (no tents allowed).

All of the same routes we rode in 2018 will be repeated except Antelope Lake is out; Frenchman Lake (three options including a gravel ride) will replace it. I have also added a 100k option to the big flat loop. To see all the routes, go to: https://ridewithgps.com/events/101220-sfcc-summer-camp-2020 (click on 'Show All On Map').
Feel free to contact me for any questions, Kathy Welch (Sumer Camp Director)
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 Charlie Fox at email@example.com.
