10-9-2015 Magner to UHC Georgia Pro Cyclist Ty Magner has signed for the United Healthcare team for 2016. Magner rode for Hincapie Sportswear this year. He is a sprinter and won the Sunny King Crit and stage 4 of the Cascade Cycling Classic. Velonews reports Magner saying: “Signing with Team UnitedHealthcare for the 2016-2017 seasons could not have come at a better time in my career. After talking with the UnitedHealthcare team management, our goals aligned perfectly. At 24, I’m feeling reinvigorated like never before, and I’m excited to take the confidence I have in criteriums to more of the stateside and international stage races with the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team.” Congratulations, Ty!

10-8-2015  Atlanta Winter Bike League The 3rd Annual Atlanta Winter Bike League Starts Nov 21st It’s that time of year again; time to start slowing down, giving your body a rest and then gradually building back up for the 2016 riding season.  Yep, I’m talking about the Atlanta WBL.  Hard to believe this is year 3.  We went from averaging 50 riders for every ride in year one (and that’s when there was a fee) to almost 80 riders per ride last year.  BTW, this is a FREE ride; we only charged our 1st year since we had a SAG vehicle for every ride. WHAT TO EXPECT—If you are new to the Atlanta WBL, expect to ride in the most organized group ride ever.  Expect consistency from Ride #1 to Ride #10. Our groups ride in a double pace line 100% of the time, while riding in a straight line.  The incredibly flat terrain is the perfect environment to practice this. We start on time.  Each ride starts at 9:30am from 300 Peters Street, Atlanta (next to U-Haul)  We have access to bathrooms inside U-Haul.  PLEASE leave them cleaner that you started.  This is a courtesy they extend to us, so please be mindful of this. Tide meetings-  each ride starts with a ride meeting at 9:20am sharp.  Steady pace (effort)-  you won’t have to worry about someone blowing off the front, which usually breaks up a group almost immediately.  Surges, etc. are NOT allowed in our Series, The format for each ride is based on ride time, NOT distance.  All groups leave at the same time and return the same time.  This Series is based on winter pace, which means if you want to join our rides and decide not to ride in your group, then there are plenty of other group rides for you.  For example, our ‘A’ Group will average approx. 16mph for the first few rides but for the final ride, that average is 20mph; this happens gradually over 10 rides.  The ‘B’ Group will start out averaging approx. 14mph and end up closer to 17mph+.  The ‘C’ Group will start out approx. 11mph and end up closer to 14mph.

RIDE DATES— The rides are every other Saturday, so this way you don’t have to choose between your club or favorite group rides and ours; just alternate and ride both.  Win-Win. Nov 21st, Dec 5th, Dec 19th, Jan 2nd, Jan 16th, Jan 30th, Feb 13th, Feb 27th,
Mar 12th, Mar 26th

Atlanta’s CBO Atlanta is poised to get a new Chief Bicycle Officer hired by the city. According to the Saporta Report: “The Atlanta City Council is slated to approve legislation Monday that accepts funding to hire a chief bicycle officer, who is to oversee the city’s comprehensive efforts to promote cycling. The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation provided a challenge grant in the amount of $250,000 via the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, according to the legislation. The city’s Department of Planning and Community Development has agreed to match the challenge with $250,000. The challenge grant is to cover program costs for five years. At the end of the period, Atlanta intends shoulder the full cost of the program, Atlanta Planning Director Charletta Wilson Jacks said at the Sept. 29 meeting of the city council’s Community Development Committee.” Update: The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition reports that ABC Board Member Becky Katz is the first CBO!

Carolina CX Omnium Reschedule From the promoter We have made the call to RESCHEDULE our Carolina CX-Omnium. There were key factors that went into this decision. First factor here was if Greenville County would be canceling the festival because of the hurricane rain/winds moving in on us. We just got word that the County has cancelled the GetOut! Greenville Festival for 2015. They will come back and produce the Festival in 2016. We were holding out hope for this rain to pass us, but it is relentless. We thought about splitting the race days up and having just the Tryon Ultra Cross event, but the second factor was a major concern for flash flooding and trees blocking our racers way. It is best that we have a clear rescheduling with all events moving to the new date. All of our efforts will not be wasted. The new date for the Carolina Cyclocross Omnium is and has already been added to our USAC permit as NOVEMBER 14-15th.

9-30-2015 Statement There have been previously posted statements and comments about a fellow cyclist due to a dispute between the two of us.  This matter has been discussed between the parties and is now resolved.  We both desire this matter to be behind us and bear each other no ill will.  As this has been a difficult situation, I ask that no one comment on this matter on any social media or website.

Sosebee Bike Park #2 The Sosebees are making progress on Bike Park #2! I know, I normally don’t post solicitations for money, but the Sosebees pay for most of the bike park improvements out of pocket. Help them with some drainage improvements at the park at their house and the new park at Kirk and Bowman Rds. Many, many of us use these facilities in the Cartersville Budweiser Plant area! Sosebee Bike Park provides a safe place to park you car, change, and use the bathroom as well as a pavilion to hang out in!

DLV Fall Workday From the DLV (Trish’s note: It’s never too early to plan ahead!) As the season winds down it’s that time to think about showing some TLC to the DLV so that we can keep making left turns for years to come. Our first workday for the 2016 season will be Saturday November 21st starting at 10a.m. There are numerous tasks that need to be accomplished. 5 or 6 people can’t get this done on their own we can’t stress this enough. So if you’ve ever wondered why someone doesn’t pressure wash the track? Wonder no more, it takes a village!
