Attached is the March-April 2012 edition of the TAB newsletter, The Seatpost.  It’s good that tomorrow is Leap Day so that I could meet the end-of-month deadline! This new issue of the TAB newsletter is being sent to the email address you supplied with your membership form. 

Articles include

  • A great article and photos about training and riding the Pan Ohio Hope Ride, a multi-day ride to raise money for cancer, written by Mike Vanderhorst
  • Lots of details about the upcoming screening of the movie “Bicycle Dreams,” about the Race Across America - it’s March 8th and the funds raised will benefit Toledo Bikes
  • An article on what to do if you are in an accident with a motor vehicle (I hope it never happens to you)
  • Rick Metcalf’s annual list of top 10 rides to sign up for this year - and my annual list of challenging 100+ mile rides and events
  • TMACOG has a lot of ideas for Bicycle Month in May and other ways to collaborate with TAB - please give Kent Gardam your ideas and feedback
  • Club news with lists of 2011 award winners, Team Mileage Champion results, treasurers report, upcoming board meeting and much more
  • Five final Saturday opportunities to participate in Rick Metcalf’s Winter Ride Series in March
  • Information about the changes to the Saturday rides starting in April at 9:00 am - now with new starting locations and routes
  • ...and more

Special thanks to contributors Mike Vanderhorst, Keith Webb, Rick Metcalf, Kent Gardam, Linda Posadny, Debbie Tassie, Janet Smith, Alan Mikesell, Ron Toneff, Nancy Beeman and Rick Rump.  

I hope you will enjoy this issue of the newsletter!   The next issue of The Seatpost will be out at the end of April with a deadline of April  22.  As always, I'm looking for your help in selecting topics, contributing articles and photos, and keeping our newsletter interesting for our club membership.   We are still looking for volunteers to form a newsletter committee - please contact me if you would like to volunteer.
