Free Bike Journal

If you are interested in logging your miles, bikejournal.com is a free option on the web. You can track different bikes and kinds of rides while customizing the journal to set up columns of interest to you (ride time, routes, speed, HR, etc.).

I have also set up Ciclistas del Rio as a club on the site so you can attach yourself to the club and see how many miles our club members are racking up. The password to join our club is "ciclistas". If you have questions or need some help, send me an email.

IV. Communications
1. Flyer
- Michael Henderson offered to create a flyer to promote the club, show ride maps, and list ride times.
2. Email lists
- Coordinate email lists with Durango Wheel Club and Cortez cycling club's email list
3. Promote club rides on the KSJD community calendar
4. Blog: http://ciclistasdelrio.blogspot.com/
- Members are encouraged to coordinate personalized rides through the blog

V. Event possibilities (A goal of one event was set for next year)
1. Cyclocross (seemed to be a good place to start)
- The minimally marketed events that Lance Webster coordinated this fall were well attended (25 riders started the third race – an established race like Escalante Days brings in 100 riders)
- Promote Dolores as the early season (September) place to ride cross
- Practice events at Boggy Draw leading up to the formal race
- Formal event in Dolores
- Partner with other towns to be a part of a cross series
- USWCDP would try to bring in some riders for a skills clinic (could happen in coordination with the formal race weekend or maybe as a part of Escalante Days)
- Cyclocross is a race that would not be a major undertaking for our first cycling event
2. Spring Classic Dirt Road Ride (future event?)
- 20-mile loop in Lewis
3. Support an endurance mountain bike race that Scott Pendleton wants to coordinate
4. Considerations
- An event that will need some financial commitment from the town of Dolores will need to be taken to the town quickly as they are finishing their budget soon
- Calendars need to be coordinated so we don't conflict with other popular events
- Events need volunteers

VI. Club Ride Possibilities
1. Sunday rides
- Encourage and support more levels of riders
- Maybe split the group at half way so recreational and more avid riders can then pursue their own pace
- Support recreational riders by providing a ride leader/trailer to help with equipment issues, etc.
2. Weekday evening ride
- Wednesday's were discussed as a mountain bike ride
3. Training ride schedules
- Coordinate training schedules for specific events (Iron Horse, Ride the Rockies)
4. Develop a ladies ride
5. More personalized rides can be organized via the blog

VII. Club Clothing
1. Tread graphic needs to be smoothed out
2. USWCDP will be added to the jersey
3. Need to develop a priced schedule for sponsors on the jersey
4. Club needs to get together and take a picture in kits to send to sponsors
5. Jeff Fox will help with vectorizing images if needed
6. Next order will be mid to late January
