Personal Quote: 
Over the last eight years of riding with the club I’ve really enjoyed the challenges and comradery of the weekly rides.  The great work done by Gregg Fremed to create an excellent foundation for the club’ treasury will allow me to hit the ground “riding” as I take on this new position. Looking forward to working with the rest of the Board to continue this high standard of service for the club.

Personal Quote:

When my daughter was 19, she rode her bicycle one summer from Seattle to Washington DC. As I followed her journey, I got interested in cycling myself, and decided to check out HBC. I was a total beginner with an inexpensive hybrid bike, but I signed up for the 55 mile Gold Coast ride. I was determined to finish the ride, and I was the last person back, but I loved the experience and the terrific club members who I met. I joined HBC, and can honestly say, that was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
