Hello from LSSC during this challenging time.  We hope family, friends and you are all well.  Although club activities are limited right now, sooner or later we should be able to do more biking, skiing, hiking and other activities together again.  With that thought in mind, LSSC has events and trips scheduled throughout the Summer.  We will, of course, cancel a trip if necessary.  Please note, most of our activities are free. To see our event safety guidelines during the Covid-19 pandemic, click here.

There are also cycling opportunities available this summer from other organizations. Click here to view them.

LSSC 2020 BIKING PROGRAM SUMMARY

 

The Club sponsored 11 bike excursions in 2020, with two being cancelled—1 WI destination weekend due to Chicago travel restrictions & 1 due to weather. Out of the 110 total registration slots for the 9 remaining summer rides we had a total of 99 riders. A great turn out showing that everyone wanted to get out into the great outdoors and reduce stress levels with a good cardio workout. Of course, safety was a concern during the pandemic, but everyone complied with the club’s ride guidelines. Thank you.

We’ve learned a great deal about the types of rides that interest our members. We’ll be sending a set of bike outing survey questions to participants soon. We welcome your continued feedback and suggestions so that we offer new and challenging bike rides for the 2021 season.

Thanks to all the riders who shared the trail and roadways this year. We hope that you will consider choosing your own ride to host next year. Our events are powered by our volunteer leaders. You find the ride route, plan it and we’ll get it on the calendar! We’ll coach new leaders along the way. (You can always solicit a friend to co-lead.)

See you soon on the ski trails!
