By Craig Hall, WCBC Event Director
It’s fall once again, and that means it’s time for the final major WCBC event for the year: the 2011 edition of the Savage Century! Plans are well underway for another great ride! A great weather forecast is on order, given that for the past 2 years, we’ve had rain and then wind. The 3rd year will be the charm, with comfortable fall weather, and scenic autumn riding in the hills of Chester and Lancaster Counties. Come out and enjoy the cooler weather after the hazy, hot and humid summer days (and canceled rides) we all endured!
This year’s ride is scheduled for Saturday, October 15, beginning once again at the W.L. Gore facility on Barksdale Road, just south of Newark. Registration opens at 7AM. The same 4 routes (40, 60, 75, and 100 miles) as last year will again be used, so we’ll have rest stops at both Nottingham County Park (all routes) and out at the Colemanville Church (on the 100-mile route).
Check the WCBC website for more information and registration links.
Also, in order to continue the outstanding tradition and reputation of WCBC major events, I’m hoping I can count on a number of you to volunteer some of your time on the day of the event to help with setup, registration, SAG, rest stops, and cleanup! We need ~ 15 – 20 volunteers. Please let me know as quickly as possible if you would be willing to volunteer. If you have volunteered for the Savage Century before, please let me know if you have a preference as to where you’d like to volunteer. Also, if you are willing to put on your baker’s hat and maybe even test a new recipe, please let me know. These home-baked treats are clearly a favorite of the cyclists who participate in our events.
Volunteers: Please send your replies to: SavageCentury@WhiteClayBicycleClub.org
I’m looking forward to another successful Savage Century, and with your help, the Club’s tradition of hosting great rides will continue. Thanks for your continued support!
