Community Bike Ride List December 13-19

Happy Holidays.  This coming week we have lots of rides in Winterhaven.  I’m told the Tuesday Night Ride will have a Santa on Bike towing a Christmas Tree on a Bike Bob.  Bring a Bike Ornament and decorate the tree.

Sorry this is out so late tonight.  Today we had a meeting for with the County Bond Election Committee for the proposed Velodrome.  The good news is that pushed the vote back until January to give the Cycling community a chance to answer some questions on location and funding.  We will be back at the next bond meeting to try again.

This list is a major time commitment and it is my pleasure to put it together.  All I ask in return for the list is that you remember I’m A REALTOR.  If you have a relationship with another REALTOR, I love loyalty and respect those relationships.  However, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me in mind.  Many agents spend money advertising for new business, some door knock and others  cold call.  My business is based on referrals from past clients and friends.  The less time I have to do traditional prospecting the more I can do for the clients and friends you refer my team AND for  the cycling community.  For example: This list!
