GSW Welcomes You
Message from GSW Board
Signs of Spring are finally appearing. We have several upcoming GSW meetings devoted to getting you ready for cycling. On May 14th the GSW meeting is at Goodale's in Nashua, the featured topic is basic bike maintenance 101. The June 11th meeting begins with an optional bike check and short ride at 5:30pm. Meet at Concord Crossing parking lot. Following the ride, the GSW meeting starts at 7pm.
We've been working with the Bike-Walk Alliance of NH Board to explore “The Future of NH Bike Advocacy” and produced a poll for the NH cycling community. Please participate in the poll and forward to others that you think would like to weigh in. We'd like to host a Bike Summit in June to discuss the results of the poll and where we go from here. Many other states have successful State Bicycle advocacy organizations that also sponsor some rides and have affiliated bike clubs. We need to relaunch efforts here in NH to be successful. One of the big ideas to discuss is whether we should consider merging GSW and the Bike-Walk Alliance of NH or at least some functions we now host separately. That's a big change, but there may be some big opportunities to simplify the administrative tasks of both organizations. So, check out the survey and help us as we plan the Summit.
HELP WANTED! is in the title of several articles in this newsletter. One of the challenges of an all volunteer organization is getting things done with volunteers. Many hands make light work. So please respond to these requests:
GSW Officer and Board – We need to identify folks to fill our vacant GSW positions.
Seacoast Century - There's a link to SignUp in the newsletter. It is easy to choose a volunteer task to help with Century.
Spring into action with us!
