Time to train for the Tour de Brew KC with the Spring Classic Ride! A scenic, rural route leaving at 8:00 a.m. at the southwest corner of the Loiret and 95th St. parking lot in Lenexa, the Spring Classic cruises through Bonner Springs, DeSoto, Gardner and Edgerton, KS. For members of JCBC and Kansas City Bicycle Club the ride costs an inexpensive $25.00. And, for non-members only $5.00 more! For this great price you get a map, roving SAGs and friendly folks with yummy snacks to keep those muscles stoked. You also get to know that part of your fee will go to support bicycling advocacy such as BikeWalkKC, KanBikeWalk or Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation.
If you’re not quite ready to ride but still would like to meet some friendly cyclists and help out, Johnson County Bike Club would be happy to have you as a volunteer. To find out opportunities, contact Maury Brown here.
Next up for JCBC is the ever-popular Cider Mill Century ride in early August.
Here’s a little more information about the club.
The Johnson County Bicycle Club began as an offshoot of the Johnson County Outdoor Society in the late 1960s to promote safe recreational and social cycling. The club originally was a part of the Johnson County Parks and Recreation Department. Seeking independence, the club became a separate entity in 1973.
Today, the JCBC is strictly a recreational cycling club whose purpose is to promote bicycling safety, advocacy, and fellowship. Although its roots and club name are centered about Johnson County, JCBC’s interests cover the greater Kansas City Metro and beyond.
At the end of each year, the board donates a significant potion of the club’s funds to select local and national organizations in appreciation and support of their efforts to promote cycling in our area.
