    CIBAs Carbos & Caffeine Saturday Breakfast Ride (SBR) will change its start location in 2014, starting with the first official ride date of January 11.  Quaker Park is located at 17501 Dartown Road, which is directly behind the Public Safety Building on the south side of SR 32, approximately 1 mile west of US-31. 
    Quaker Park has good parking, public restrooms, a shelter house, and is adjacent to the Midland Trace Trail, which connects to the Monon Trail.  This provides great access when riding to the start of the SBR!
    The SBR is held each Saturday, and starts at 9 AM October through March, and 8 AMApril through September.  The SBR is suspended for the NITE Ride and Hilly Hundred.  Temperatures below 25 degrees, steady rain or snow, or snow/ice on the road cancels the ride.
    The SBR was established in April 2003 as a social, fun ride that includes a stop for breakfast and provides a variety of route options, so one can choose mileage based on ability, weather, or need.  Maps and Cue sheets are always available, and the Leader always ‘sweeps’, so those new to the group have someone to ride with, regardless of speed. 
    The Ride has developed good friendships over the years, starting with just a few riders, to groups of 35-50 during peak season.  Nearly every week we welcome riders new to group riding or new to the area.  With multiple speed groups and routes, the SBR offers options to suit any rider. But we concentrate on the “option” of having Fun and Meeting New Friends!
    Please Note:  The SBR will be suspended January 4.  Please attend the Mayors 3rdAnnual Polar Bear Pedal at the City Market in Indianapolis.

    Due to extreme cold 23 degrees at ride time and country roads with snow and ice we are canceling the Jolly Old t. Nick ride for Saturday, December 7.   If possible we will reschedule for a later date.  Maybe St. Nick in January.

    What Rain?

    The 46th annual Hilly Hundred Weekend is complete.  Well, almost complete.  We're still tallying the numbers, putting things into the warehouse, thanking the participants, thanking our Edgewood partners, thanking the neighbors in the town of Ellettsville and in Monroe and Owen Counties, sending pre-purchased merchandise to those who couldn't make it, and lots more.  We'll continue to be busy for a few more weeks.  

    If you lost something, let me know.  If you found something, and forgot to turn it in, let me know.  If you forgot to buy something, let me know.  The small remaining inventory is shown on the Merchandise Page. If you wish to purchase something still shown there, let me know and I'll instruct you how to proceed.  I'll ask to you send a check to me which will cover the cost of the item plus postage.  Handling is free.
