We are hosting a benefit ride for the our Handlebar friends who are currently fighting for their son who was diagnosed with cancer this Fall. All proceeds from this benefit ride are going to the family. We want to help in any way we can with the expenses of treatment and care for their son. Sign up online but pay day of at the studio. Cash or check only. No credit cards. $25 entry fee. Plus we will have an additional donation box at the studio for those that may want to contribute more.
Can't make the ride? The Handlebar will donate 10% of all sales January 23-24th. So any class you ride all weekend will be helping our good friends, The O'Reilly's.
Also you can go online and donate, https://www.gofundme.com/eb83guzq

YELLOW JERSEY CLUB
Earning the first two "yellow jerseys" were handlebar members, Cindy Foss and Rebecca Ray. We want to congratulate both of you for earning that jersey by riding 100 rides with us! What an awesome accomplishment. They earned their plaque on the wall as well as their 100 Ride yellow jerseys.
Looking for a goal this Fall? We want your name on our 100 Ride Wall! In fact, we want the entire bike filled with yellow jerseys. We need your help to do that! Ride 100 times with us as earn your own yellow jersey.
