Membership Meeting

Don't forget our "all things bike" get-together tonight (4/9) at Howiee's on Front (16 N. Front St., Medford) at 6:30. Fun videos on the big screens, drinks, eats and socializing with like-minded folk.


You can park without time restrictions after 6 pm on the street or at the parking garage on 6th St. between Riverside and Central. That is, if you're not planning to ride and thereby qualify for a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Flywheel.

See you there!
