We’ve learned that a staff member has tested positive for Covid-19.  Despite all the vaccinations happening, we still want to take a cautious approach.  As schools continue to wind down, we understand family’s needs to place studies in front of team programming.  With that said, we’ve decided to cancel practices this week to help everyone focus and await updated testing results. We will have weekend rides, so that you can take the stress of the week out on the pedals.

Team El Grupo had some very impressive results this past weekend at the State Mountain Bike Championships. All raced and learned something new about themselves. They truly trusted themselves to go out and be their best and as a team we were delighted to see them race with such confidence.  A total of seven top five podium finishes were won highlighted by a state title for Damiano!  Other podiums include; 2nd– Axel; 3rd– Olivia and Jorah; 4th– Alex; 5th– Taryn, Maggie, and Liam.  Excellent efforts and results for the rest of the team including 7th for Sam; 9th– William; 10th– Leo; 11th– Kaiden; and 15th for Evan.  Huge thank yous to Steven who secured us an amazing campground at Emmanuel Pines, Ken and Tabitha for the evening’s entertainment, and for the company of Coach Rene.

Summer bike camp is fast approaching and we have had many shuffles to our team staffing for the three weeks in June.  Be on the lookout tomorrow for your Summer Bike Camp week revised assignments. These are now set and we will need all hands on deck to enjoy a great summer program. If you would like to work a second week, please let us know.

May 23rd we will be having a Garage Sale on the clubhouse grounds.  We have many items that the team simply can’t use and I’m sure there are countless treasured items if you enjoy the thrifting hunt.  I’m willing to assume that coming early for the best selection would be ideal, but we will have hours of 8-11am on the 23rd for your search!

I hope everyone has a fantastic week.  If you want to work on a bike or need a bike out of the clubhouse please let me know.
