We are just days into the new year, the snow finally showed up (hopefully, to stay this time) and time for the January, WMMBA Member Meeting!

Many of us made a few resolutions for the new year, ride more, ride at night, get involved with the WMMBA, etc…
We want to help you keep those resolutions.

This Wednesday night, we will be meeting at the Indian Trails Golf Course. With the new snow on the ground, Indian Trails will have their groomed fat bike course open and ready for the season and we would like you to help us ride it in.

Afterward, the club house will be open, with roaring fire to warm you back up, beverages available on tap and yes, there will be food!

Central District Cyclery will be serving up the food! They’ll have roast pig, vegetarian beens and all the other fixings as well!

Central District Cyclery will also be contributing $15 towards any new WMMBA membership! We’ve spoke with a lot of you who are on the fence about becoming a WMMBA member and CDC would like to make it a bit easier to jump on board. We’ll be there to answer questions about membership and tell you about some of the great things the WMMBA has lined up for the year.

So, grab your fat bike, grab your friends, bring your appetite and join us on Wednesday, January 14th, 201512216679-standard-1. Ride time starts at 6pm, food starts at 7pm and meeting time is 7:30 (ish).
Lights and helmets are required on he course, so bring them, please.

Don’t have a fat bike? There will be demos on hand! Don’t want to ride? Join us for the meeting! See you then!
