Regular Meeting Set For Tuesday

New location: meet at 6PM at the Chamber of Commerce Office on the Plaza!
It's time for another SSR meeting! This time we'll have a guest speaker (see related article), Greg White, of the NM Highway Department. If you've got items for the agenda, please contact Matt Perini.

NM Highway Department Representative To Speak

Mr. Greg White, the New Mexico State Highway And Transportation Department representative on the state's Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Equestrian committee, is coming to Socorro and talk to SSR about cycling issues for the SSR meeting on May 6th. This is a good opportunity for you to make your voice heard about highway issue, bicycle commuting, or anything else you'd like to happen within the highway department.

Mountain Bike Picture Rally On May 10

The date for this event has changed from 5/3 to 5/10
Robert Abernathy is planning a fun, family-oriented, event for May 10th, a "Mountain Bike Picture Rally." The picture rally concept is based on the same sort of event for car or motorcycle clubs, where you're given a set of numbered photos, and you attempt to visit each place where a photo was taken. In our case, each photo may contain a different view of M Mountain, and you'll be following trails and streets in the Socorro area, until you arrive at the party at the end. More details on what to bring and where to meet will be coming on this web site.

Spring Handicap Series Results

The last 10K handicap of the spring series went down to the wire between Matt and Christian, a 100 yard sprint with Christian closing fast after making up a 15 minute deficit, but Matt held on for the win. Joe Dickerson finished third, wrapping up the series victory and winning the $50 championship prize. Fred and Bill completed the field.

If you missed these races, you've missed a good time. Thanks to Robert for hosting each of the four races in this series, and we're looking forward to another series in the fall.
