FLCC 30th Anniversary Picnic

August 25, 2012, 4:00 – 8:00 PM
Upper Buttermilk Park

Picnic Sign-up

30 years ago 6 cycling legends — Tob de Boer, Leigh Phoenix, Louise Adie, Glenn Swan, James Hartshorne and Jim Black — sat around someone’s kitchen table and founded the Finger Lakes Cycling Club. Come celebrate 30 years of the FLCC, share your stories, hang out with friends, meet new members, say goodbye to folks moving onto to their next cycling adventure and toast the FLCC founders!

We’ve rented the shelter. The club will provide soft drinks, grilled chicken, and a vegetarian alternative. Please sign-up with the number in your party and what you think you will bring. Not a chef? — sign up to contribute paper goods. Volunteer to man the grill, set up the tables, coordinates a drop off point for folks cycling into the park and last but not least a clean-up team.

The park entrance fee is $7.00 per car. Cyclists (on bicycles) enter the park for free.

Finally, take a few minutes to jot down your stories and look through your pictures. Please email anything you have to share to malrobinson@verizon.net

    CLCC Folks:

    30 years? Wow, has it been that long since the Finger Lakes Cycling Club was founded? It is really heartwarming and energizing to see how the club has grown in membership and activities, all helped by a great website with great pictures and events, Facebook, and energetic folks. When we started it was snail-mail and the phone tree (and a small tree at that). And almost everyone was involved in racing and what held us together in many ways was the Race Around Cayuga Lake in September and our orange and blue jersey, and our “training races” consisting of four or five of us (at most). Nonetheless any good club has to start somewhere.

    I wish I could join you tomorrow, but I have to be in NYC for the weekend — at it isn’t to ride rest assured. But I wish you all a great time, and maybe next year – or at the 50th anniversary.

    Best to you all
