Many SFCC'ers have signed up to join the Sierra Foothills Hiking Group for added cross training, fitness, and fun. This newly formed group invites anyone who enjoys group hiking along the many great trails in the Auburn area. You do not have to be an SFCC member to join.
The hikes are in the 3 - 7 mile range and typically take place in the afternoon (after morning bike rides). Hike announcements are made via an email group and private Facebook page. If you would like to be added to one or both, please contact Kathy Welch at email@example.com.
SFCC members proudly stand behind a "public" bicycle pump donated to the Flower Farm by our Club. This rugged stainless steel pump is located just outside the Flower Farm Coffee Shop and can be used by cyclists in need. Its one of many of our contributions to make the area a little more bike friendly.
The Voler ordering web is site set to go: http://www.voler.com/custom/ordering/li/17770 You can order your your SFCC Jersey, shorts, etc. from this site and it will be delivered to your home. We are not waiting for a specific date for batch orders.

The Cycling Education Committee(CEC) offers a series of rides on Sundays to promote cycling knowledge, skills and safety. These are "no-drop" rides especially intended for riders wishing to learn about cycling as well as wanting to develop their cycling skills and fitness. They are social rides, generally at the pace of the slowest rider, and have a "sweep" so no one gets dropped. Routes are usually in the range of 15 to 20 miles and not too hilly. All have a short pre-ride clinic about cycling. The names of these rides and ride leaders are:
Cycling 100: Ted Herr
Cycling 101: Rudy Dressendorfer
Cycling 102: Ed O'Connell
Please check the calendar for dates and details.
