The Seatpost - Jan-Feb 2013 Issue

posted Dec 28, 2012, 5:10 AM by TAB Webmaster

TAB members and beyond,

Attached is the January-February 2013 edition of the TAB newsletter, The Seatpost.   This new issue of the TAB newsletter is being sent to the email address you supplied with your membership form.  As always, within a few hours you will also be able to download it from our TAB website at

I had planned a short, mini edition - but we had so many contributions that this issue has turned into the longest of the year.  I hope you will enjoy it as we look out on Toledo’s first real snow in two years. 

Articles include:

  • Photos and story about TAB’s visit to the deerest village in Ohio, Rudolph
  • Cycling Canada - plan a visit to our northern neighbor (great cycling as close as 1.5 hours from Toledo) … or venture further away to Lisbon, Portugal
  • Special offers from Wildwood Athletic Club, Tour of Colorado and Bike Tour Vacations especially for our members
  • Read about a top cyclist, who was also a true war hero
  • Cyclemania returns to Detroit - will Motorcity return to its roots as Bicyclecity
  • Towpath guidelines and Metropark rules - a useful reminder for sharing the trail
  • 2 watt tail lights come to market - a comparison of two new entries
  • More regional news and new products
  • Calendar of New Years Day ride options, as well as the next Saturday rides in the Winter Ride series
  • Information and reservation form for our annual TAB Banquet, which will be on Saturday, January 26 (save the date!) as well as Team Toledo’s Winter Expo event
  • ....and board meeting notes, treasurer’s report and final thoughts on the year from your editor

This issue again had a large cast of contributors.  I want to warmly thank Chuck Nicewonder, Sue Richards, Beth Vollmar, Alisha Powell, Vicky Gan, Jim Plant, Lora Goerlich, Rick Metcalf, Mike Vanderhorst, Debbie Tassie, and Rick Rump for their hard work to contribute articles, photos and suggestions.   Please consider adding your name to this list by contributing an article or photo to our next issue.   The next issue of The Seatpost will be out at the end of February with a submission deadline of February 23rd.  

Happy New Year! 

Jacqueline, The Seatpost Editor
