Thank you to all of the people posting rides on Facebook! We have seen a significant increase in interest and activity!
Please, if you are willing to lead a ride, post to Facebook with the starting time and location as well as the expected distance/speed.
We will be asking about interest in re-starting the LP&L Ride as well as beginning a Beginner Ride. If there is significant interest, we will seek a ride leader for these rides.
HeBrews Coffee, a coffee shop in the Canyon Lakes and on the Canyon Lakes Cycling Route has reached out to WTCA to offer a place for rides to start. This may be a good place to start or end a ride or hold a meeting.
Chisum Ride
For anyone who has ridden the Chism route and encountered the dogs on CR 7300 (the house with all the dogs that keep chasing cyclists) there is an effort spear-headed by Keith Gilmore to put in reports to the Sheriff.
We have had two separate riders taken down by these dogs, and while there has not been any serious injury, the opportunity for serious injury is very high.
Keith G. has been in contact with an officer from Animal Control who has said that we should continue to submit reports and after a certain number of reports the homeowners will be issued a citation.
Keith Thompson will be sending a formal letter to the Sheriff and Animal Control regarding this issue since they do not appear to have made much effort to correct the problem.
There will be more specific information available later.
Motion to adjourn by Pat, Second by Lindel. Motion passes
