The Bluegrass Cycling Club is governed by a twelve member board of directors. Members serve a term of three years, with four board members elected annually. Pursuant to the BCC by-laws, board members may not serve more than two consecutive terms. Board members whose terms expire include George Pierce, Pam Thomas, Randy Thomas, and Patrick Weslosky. All members whose terms are expiring may run again except Pam Thomas, who has already served two terms.
The Board has appointed Pam Thomas and Gayle Tomkinson to serve as the nominating committee. Nominations for the four open board seats should be submitted to Pam Thomas at email@example.com. Any member may nominate himself or herself, or another BCC member. Any nomination must include the person’s name, e-mail address, and telephone number. Gayle or Pam will follow up with each nominee to confirm that he/she would like to be a candidate and to provide the format for submission of a photograph and biographical statement for publication on the BCC website. Nominations will remain open from October 15-November 30. Biographies and photographs of candidates will be posted on the BCC Website beginning December 1. On-line voting will be conducted beginning December 15th.
Please consider serving on the board or nominating someone you think would be an excellent representative to serve on the board! We need good strong board members to continue our tradition of excellence!
Tips About Riding With The Bluegrass Cycling Club
We are happy that so many new members have joined our club this year!! We encourage everyone to take a few minutes to review our ride guidelines, which can be accessed by clicking on the button below. It is very important for all riders to take the time to review ride descriptions, and to honestly assess whether you have the experience and fitness to successfully participate in the ride as described. Our goal is for everyone to be safe and have fun on our rides, and this works best when everyone attends rides that are suitable for them.
If you are unsure whether a ride is appropriate for you PLEASE give the ride leader a call before the ride and he or she will be happy to advise you. It is ALWAYS better to ask in advance!
If you are brand new to cycling, please take a bit of time to learn how your bike works - how your gears shift, how your brakes work, and how to stop and start before joining a group ride. We can help you develop group riding skills, and become a better and stronger rider, but you need to have a basic understanding of how your bike works first. If you need assistance in learning the basics about your bike, contact our Education Committee chairperson Pam Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will help connect you with a club member who can help you!
