FROM THE DIRECTORS:

Well, we’re now a whole month closer to riding time.

March is often a teaser month. Sometimes it gets fairly warm and we think we’re almost in spring, and then winter roars back and reminds us that we live in Wisconsin. At least the daylight hours are really increasing and it’s obvious that we’re past the worst of winter.

We had a very busy month of March. It started with our annual Winter Get-away in Baraboo which went well (thanks, as usual, to Christen) and included the Duck Pin bowling challenge from Chapter N. There will be more information on that in next month’s newsletter.

One of the great things about the month of April here in Wisconsin is that we always get at least a few really nice days (compared to Jan. & Feb.), when the more hearty among us get the bike out on the road and knock off some of the rust that developed on our riding skills over the winter. A little individual “Parking Lot Practice” is always a good thing in early spring.

Things will really start to liven up next month when the riding season actually gets going. There will be more and more rides and other events coming in May, and once June arrives we’re in full swing.

Really looking forward to all that!
