Workin hard for the money
Thank you first to everyone for coming out and helping with the street fair valet. It was a very successful event, I believe, with our most bicycles parked ever. Congratulations to all for making it happen. I very much enjoyed the energy everyone brought to the event and seeing so many of the new faces of the team hanging out, getting to know each other, and the team.
Tuesday December 14th
The PBAA is having a meeting at the downtown YMCA at 6:30pm. This is the organization that puts on the El Tour. Colin and I made a trophy to present to them and Daniela had a poster made. We have been invited to the YMCA to present it to them. I know that this is finals week for all of you and I do not want you home late. School is number one. However I would love it if as many of you as possible could show up to say thanks. It would go a long way. So if you can come to practice and the meeting great. If you have to skip practice and then just come to meeting great. If you can’t make either because you are studying great. But please let me know. Smiling faces go a long way. Oh if you have to choose, come to the meeting and not practice, in your team t-shirt or jersey of course.
Sorry for the huge images. (I fixed them. -Colin)
Thanks to everyone who commented and signed up for times this weekend. You are expected during those times, so you know. I still have a few gaps and there are plenty of you to help fill them.
Saturday 4-6pm needs covered. (Matt, I have you done for at least 3-4pm)
Sunday 2pm-6pm still needs lots of help, so please plan on coming to help then if you have not already signed up for other hours.
Finally, there was a change in the schedule and we will NOT be having a SPIN Class at O2 this weekend. Our next class there is on the 18th of December.
Thanks again for all the help with the bike valet this weekend!
It is coming. The 4th Ave Street Fair will be bringing in thousands and thousands of people for holiday shopping…and we only hope that a few of them decide to ride their bikes instead of looking for parking. That is because El Grupo will be providing FREE bike valet parking for all three days out at the fair. The event runs from 10am-6pm Friday Dec. 10th thru Sunday, Dec. 12th.
I will need EACH OF YOU RIDERS to sign up for at least 2 hours during the three days so that we can cover all the time. These can be together or separate. Keep in mind that you could help out after school on Friday if you live nearby, OR you could PLAN AHEAD and stay after practice on Saturday or Sunday. This is a “fairly” easy gig, as we take in, watch over, and return bicycles to their owners so they can enjoy the fair. You will get a chance to enjoy it as well. We are set up next to the Main Stage with live music all weekend on the east side of 4th Ave on 7th St, just blocks from the clubhouse.
PLEASE COMMENT with the times you want. First come, first served 🙂
Thank you, O2, Modern Fitness for the fantastic class on Saturday! That was exhausting and fun! As I was too busy spinning, there are only about a dozen images (I had to show Richard and Alex in front of me who was dominating the field….lol). Check out the photos HERE.
While I was working on the site today, I stumbled upon this sweet picture of Max on our Facebook page. This made my day+
We had an awesomely busy day today, but lots of fun. I hope to get some great photos up soon from the GABA Toys for Tots ride this morning at the zoo, where El Grupo youth rocked the bike valet parking. And I’m sure Kathleen will be posting photos from our killer workout at O2… Read more »
Newgan’s dad took some super terrific photos of B Team before, during and after their 67 mile El Tour race. I posted them HERE on our El Grupo Facebook page. Thank you, Mr. “Newgan!”

Eric and Amy of Heithaus Productions created a video of the El Tour that has some El Grupo footage and lots of El Grupo photos. Thank you, Heithaus Productions!
We are headed back to our friends at O2 Modern Fitness, but this time we are not in the studio, but on the bikes! That’s right. We are going to get an introduction to spin (some us us, uhum Jade) have tons of experience with this, but for most of us this will be a… Read more »
