Tyler Grit and Glide Recap

What a great event yesterday!  We had 107 entries and we raised $3500 for the charity, For The Silent.  Congratulations to Rico Vasquez for putting on such a great event.  Thank you to all the volunteers that helped make this event so successful.  We have a great group of people who come out and help, you give of yourselves and the cycling community is lucky to have you!  Thanks to both bike shops, Elite and Simpson’s, for always providing support for every event we do.  We hope to see everyone next year.

 


Tyler Triple Threat

TTT

FRESH 15, Beauty and the Beast and Tri Tyler Half team up to announce the Tyler Triple Threat Challenge

Three Tyler, Texas, endurance racing events have partnered to present a new challenge for athletes. The Tyler Triple Threat Challenge, sponsored by Tyler Urology Associates, will cross promote the FRESH 15, Beauty & the Beast and Tri Tyler Half.

The first part in the challenge is the FRESH 15 – a 15k and 5k road race set for March 7, 2015, starting and ending at FRESH by Brookshire’s in Tyler. The Beauty and the Beast bicycle tour/race on March 21 is the second endurance event, and consists of 12.5, 24, 34, 46, 53 or 67 route through beautiful areas of Tyler, while also encompassing a “beast” hill near the finish line. The challenge finale is the Tri Tyler Half, Olympic and Sprint triathlon set for May 5 at Lake Tyler.

Here’s how it works:

Athletes that participate in each event will receive a commemorative Tyler Triple Threat Challenge medal and finisher’s certificate. Athletes may participate in any distance of each event, but must participate and finish all three.

This special event will showcase equally beautiful parts of Tyler and combine the efforts of three great races. Participants will receive their medals and finisher’s certificates at the finish line of the Tri Tyler Half on May 3, 2015.

Join us for what promises to be not just one but three great racing events for 2015.

Cyclist Awareness Ad Campaign

The Tyler Bicycle Club, through the Bicycle Advocacy Committee of East Texas, is embarking on a cyclist awareness ad campaign in Smith and Cherokee Counties. The ads will be print ads in the newspaper and on billboards on the major roads in the areas that we ride. We need volunteers to be in the print ads. We will need two males and two females, age groups of 17 to 23 (students) and 35+ (professionals or parents). We would like to have people that the community will recognize, in a good way, or people others can identify with (mother, son, nurse, store owner, etc.). If you know of someone or you would like to be in the ad, please email a TBC officer.

Welcome to the new Tyler Bicycle Club website!

We have been planning on this change for over a year and everything finally fell into place and we are now live.  Now that we have the site up and running, what can you expect to see?  We will have the same info as the old site, plus much more.  We are working to integrate the Facebook and twitter feeds onto the website page as well as the forum.  We hope to have more interactive maps and up to date ride postings.  Our newsletter will be fully online by mid-year and it will be updated weekly.  All of the officers will have the ability to log on to the site and update the information as needed.  New member’s names will be posted as they join and all club events and activities, such as special rides and time trial results will be posted on the website.  Our goal is to have our members spend more time on the website to communicate with one another and to learn of the club activities.  The website will also be a tool to introduce the club to all potential members.

I hope you enjoy the new www.tylerbicycleclub.com!
