Whatever holiday you are celebrating, or even if you are sitting at home doing nothing or working out late at the gym getting ready for your next brevet, Jim, Bob and I all want to send the best of wishes for the New Year.
The jersey sale is officially over and Soigneur is busy creating our jerseys. The fabric is knitted and they are now in the sewing queue. For the 20 of you that ordered, they are scheduled to be delivered in early February. Once I receive them, I will be sending them on to you at the shipping address you included.
The website will be rather dormant for the next couple of months. I will be starting things again in February/March when the jerseys come in. Our opener is not until April, but that doesn't mean we all get to do nothing for the next few months. Those that want to ride 124 miles in April are necessarily somewhat busy during the winter.
As an aside, as it is GLR's 20th or 35th anniversary (depending on which start date you are counting), your new RBA may decide to run a different 200k than the tranditional one to Brodhead, Evansville, and Oregon. There will be changes next year even if I am in training and it will be up to Jim to make sure I don't get into too much trouble!
I also wanted to thank everyone that has gone ahead and signed up on our new website! Doing our registrations online will save an enormous amount of time that we would prefer go into making new and exciting routes.
Safe travels to everyone!
Michele, Bob and Jim
