It's the Northern Star Cycling Club update thread!
« on: March 19, 2014, 03:36:26 pm »
This will just be one update thread to keep everyone up to date on the Northern Star Cycling Club.  A bunch of us are ex-UNDCC members (from different eras; and yes, we did graduate), so we know what you guys might be going through.  UNDCC has its ups and downs with membership and leadership, so we're hear to help out if you need us or get out of your way if you don't.

First matter of business: 

NSCC MEETING, Wed 19 Mar 2014, 7:30 PM at the Blue Moose (East Grand Forks).
We'll be talking about pretty much everything, including racing, group riding, advocacy, alleycats, spring cyclocross, and whatever YOU want.  Seriously.  Blue Moose is 15 minutes from campus by bicycle (I should know, I ride it every day).

We had 13 people out to ride--pretty solid, considering six people showed up to the road ride in town!

This weekend the #mtbadventurevan is heading out to the DORCS mountain bike race in Minot.  Leave early, get back same day.  Post up if you want to go along, all skill levels welcome.  https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=777499265606888&id=339471792742973

NSCC had a meeting on Tuesday night at the Boardwalk.  Did you miss us?

We talked about
- The Flugly, a mountain bike race in Moorhead on Saturday
- END-TOMBED, a 12-hour mountain bike race at Turtle River State Park at the end of October
- The lack of bike infrastructure in the plans for the Columbia Road work--special report from Jason on a meeting with City engineers
- Getting more UND students involved and helping (if needed) get the UND club back up and running.  (Why have a club?  Because UND will give you money to drive places to ride bicycles.  The process is easy, get in touch if you're a student and don't know where to start.)
- Crowdfunding and collaborating with the City to get more repair stands around town
- People have been riding and racing!  Lots of stories from hot Minnesota fondos to hot Maah Daah Hey action to bikepacking
- Getting people to ride through crossover from other sports.  Potentially having some "track racing" even though we don't have a velodrome in town.  Hockey players, why don't you ride bicycles with us?
- Might show up at the UND Community Expo on Wednesday (separate from the Student Involvement Expo on Sunday night, which is new) and hang out by the repair stand.  Anyone interested?
- Opportunity to show up at Alley Alive on Wednesday night, too.
- We have a really shoddy group ride schedule.  How can we make things more available to new people/visitors/anyone who wants to find people to ride with?
