Bikes and Brunch - Community Bike Works

Four LWA members (Jack Helfrich, Raina Fussner, Jane Derby and Carl Zvanut) participated in CBW's Bikes and Brunch event from downtown Allentown.  The intent was to show that people who live in downtown Allentown can safely ride to the parkway and have a great ride.  Although I was skeptical, it turned out to be true.  The CBW folks led the way and we were all amazed at how much fun it was.  Of course, a ride followed by brunch is hard to beat.  

Thks was all part of CBW's current fundraiser.  If you'd like to give, click on: https://www.pledgereg.com/Users/Donor/Default.aspx?tid=20147&amt=0.

The Joys of Solo Riding.

We all miss riding in groups with our fellow club members, but let’s take some time to enjoy solo riding during these difficult times.  It is spring, the trees and flowers are blooming, and the days are getting longer and warmer.  I find myself in the same situation I was seven years ago after retirement.  Riding solo, working around the house, doing some computer work and reading.  It was great to hook up with the LWA and start riding in groups and develop the great friendships of club members.
