TAB members and beyond,

Attached is the June-July 2014 edition of the TAB newsletter, The Seat Post.   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.

We had some fantastic contributions to this issue!  

  • Brian Gribble summarizes the Bike to the Bay Training and Group Ride Clinic
  • Debbie Tassie and Linda Posadny discuss some of the fun changes to MARR
  • Brian provides the details to show our club’s strong financial condition
  • Nancy Beeman contributes some recipe ideas to fuel bicyclists
  • The calendar of events for June and July shows lots of options each weekend
  • And we look back and to the future with our President Cindy DiVitto

There were a couple of other columns I had planned for the newsletter.  Brian, one of the owners at Spokes Life Cycles has agreed to write a “Ask Mechanic” column for our newsletter.  Unfortunately, I only received one question.  If you’d like to have an opportunity to have a bike mechanic with 20 years experience provide you with answers to your questions, please email at  And I had hoped to start a column profiling members in this issue, but simply ran out of time.  I focused a bit more the past month on the new Tips About Bicycling Safely (TABS) rather than the newsletter.  I do hope you are finding the weekly TABS helpful. 

I want to warmly thank Brian Gribble (2x’s for the second time in a row!), Debbie Tassie, Linda Posadny, Nancy Beeman, Rick Metcalf, and Cindy DiVitto for their wonderful contributions to this newsletter.   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 July with a submission deadline of July 25th.  

Jacqueline, The Seat Post Editor
