Open Clubhouse today

I should have posted this sooner. I apologize.


However Lynn will be around the clubhouse today from 10am to noon.


If you need to tune up your Mountain bike this would be a good time.

I will be at the clubhouse tomorrow at 5:30am ready to load up bikes.

Objectives:  As a result of this presentation, participants will:

  • Be able to examine their own values, expectations, and needs in a relationship.
  • Be able to recognize the qualities of a mature and healthy relationship and the importance of good communication, respect, and personal boundaries.
  • Be able to think about how their own life experiences shape the relationships they create.
  • Be able to identify warning signs of unhealthy relationships.

This is A LOT in short while, but you have had the last 3 weeks off. And this is all good stuff!

The Summer Schedule posted earlier begins the week of June 5 in sync with Summer Bike Camps.

Trying to be clear

Communication is one of the hardest things we humans do. We all do it, but some how we all are kind of no good at it. I put myself firmly in the needs to get better bracket on this one.
