Volunteer Sign Up – Crits and TTs

Written By on March 27, 2016

Sean De Pol has set up a volunteer signup system for the Coal City Cycles Criterium series, as well as the Rock City Cycles Time Trial Series. As with all MIVA events, nothing happens without a LOT of volunteering from a core group of individuals. Sean’s system should help people to pre plan what races they can lend a hand at. Coal City Cycles Crit Series: This year Peter has agreed to train the incoming timer (it could be you) for a few crits and lend his expertise, thankfully.

2015 Year in Review / Introducing New Board

Written By on November 24, 2015

Thank you to everyone for making 2015 a record breaking year. It was a challenging year for MIVA as we transitioned and changed some things up a bit, but a strong board and dedicated membership made it a success. We ended the year with 120 members, our highest ever. We held fewer events overall (to combat volunteer burnout) but brought in greater overall racer numbers. MIVA hosted 14 time trials, 12 crits, 5 hill climbs, the 50/100k Challenge Ride, the Mount Washington Hill Climb, and the Pony Cross with COTR. I can’t thank the board of directors enough for all?

Byron Trajan is helping to put on a Pro D Day Tri Camp, many groups from town such as Hub City Tri Club, White Rapids Swim Club, Natural Edge Fitness, and others are helping to put on a fun day for kids aged 7-12.  This takes place on Monday, February 23rd, 2015. Between 845am-1000am Brad Goodman is putting participants on wind trainers, while Byron is working on bike handling, mounting/dismounting with the rest.  There’ll be some Leaders in Training to help out, but it couldn’t hurt to have a few adults there to keep things running smooth.
