Super end-of-season ski sale
TBN is offering a special price for the last ski trip of the 2014-15 season: just $15 for members, or $20 for your non-member friends. Sign up now for Saturday's trip to Highlands Nordic, where the trails are always beautifully groomed.
We're just days away from the first scheduled TBN rides of 2015, even though there's still snow on the side of many roads and salty puddles from the grubby, melting snow and ice. The Wednesday Wheelie riders kick things off on March 25 at 10am, and the Sunday Tourist rides will start just days after that, weather permitting. Check the cycling section of the website for details of all the ride programs. You do not have to sign up for rides, simply show up with your membership card.
As the season nears, we're putting out our regular plea for ride leaders and sweeps to make the program work. If you can help, please access your profile on the TBN website and check the box "Ride leader/sweep" in the section "Do you wish to volunteer." Or, email firstname.lastname@example.org. It's your club, help make it even better.
More jersey options
Don't forget that we are now offering a vast range of TBN jersey options this year -- sleeveless, long sleeved, vests, jackets, wind vests, wind jackets. Check the website for the options, and get your order in soon. Remember there is a lead time of 2-3 months to collect orders and then ship the goods. Order your new jacket or jersey here.
