Welcome to the Bicycle Chain.   

We have a full summer of bike events we are supporting. I am really excited for the summer.  Here are some of the highlights:

June 11-12th is the MS150.  I have spent almost 200 days volunteering for the MS society over the last 25 years.  It is a great charity and super responsible with the funds that get donated.  3000 plus riders can get a lot of flats!

June 15-19 is the pro cycling race the Northstar Grand Prix.  We will be set up in the team area supporting the Orion racing women's cycling team.  Stop by and say hi.  Orion is a local elite women's cycling team.  I always like going to these races and this year will be even more fun being part of it.  

June 30-July 3: The last part of June I am heading to Kentucky for the USA Cycling Amateur Road National Championships.  The Northstar Junior development team is one of the most successful junior teams in the country.  Last year they had 4 national champions.  One of the members (Kelly Catlin) will be representing the USA at the 2016 Olympics this summer in Brazil.  Her team just won a world championship track event a couple months ago.  I am so fortunate to be associated with this group.  

July 20-24: MS Society Ride across MN (TRAM).  My family has participated in this event as either a sponsor or rider from almost its inception 25+ years ago.  I have a great time fixing bikes for a week.  It is a lot of work but super fun.
