Shenandoah Valley, Review on Winchester wheelmen

Winchester wheelmen - Triskel
Winchester wheelmen – Triskel

We are a non-profit organization.

We are cycling advocates for all cyclists, mountain bike riders, road bike riders and families.

Membership runs coincidentally with the calendar year, with the year beginning on January 1st (ref. for those who might be on Chinese Year or something entirely different.) We used to, on the order of 10 years ago, keep track of everyone’s membership month and they would be a member for one year – big pain to keep track of! We’re not super-strict about the calendar year in terms of cutting members off from the newsletter. For example, a 2011 member will get the newsletter until March of 2012 unless they renew.

Club members are to receive a copy of the Winchester Wheelmen Resource CD-ROM upon initial membership. If you didn’t get one, let us know. Contact info@winchesterwheelmen.org . We no longer have the WW map booklet from 1987 available. All of the maps that were in that booklet are on the CD-ROM, along with many other materials.

The club is called Winchester Wheelmen because of the ties to the national organization, League of American Bicyclists (LAB). The predecessor name to the national organization was League of American Wheelmen (LAW), hence “Winchester Wheelmen”. We still secure club cycling insurance through LAB. That’s what part of your dues go to.

Dues are spent in different ways by the club in different years. Though we might not do a club picnic in a particular year, we spend money in the community to support cycling (trail maintenance tools, helmet purchases, donations to events, etc.); this is done by vote at club meetings. Other things that consume dues money are printing and postage for the newsletter. (Thanks to so many taking the letter by e-mail; only 5% of the club is taking the newsletter by USPS!)

President: Ken Tenney

We hold the election of officers at the December dinner banquet. Non-elected positions in the club are webmaster and newsletter editor. These positions were not included in the charter for the club when it was incorporated in the 1980’s. To change the charter would be problematic, so these simply remain non-elected positions.

    Well its Tuesday. I got a flat at work and I think its resolved. Not looking real good for job prospects after this. Nothing is really showing up on LinkedIn or CareerBuilder. Thankfully, my boss is great but offers no long term potential but is happy to announce when you have a flat tire. Awesome.... […]

Thankfully its not that expensive…so far I’m at about 100 dollars into it and have,,, a working guitar and a pedal that will not power on for what ever reason. I... […]

    I’m making great headway, learning a lot and now im into the familiar groove of getting through the VCE. Honestly its easier than Security+ but I wouldnt go so far as to say that the material is easy. It is a smooth transition into this after going through the books so I’m feeling well prepaired... […]

    Well, its Friday, I’m at work, at a temp job and its going fairly well. Two other jobs called back and said they decided to pursue other candidates. Which is ok but seriously is no one capable of hiring a network admin in Atlanta? What a weird town sometimes. Less weird than others but regardless... […]

    Its Monday and I’m making progress. I’ve also come into possession of a guitar amp (because it was unreasonably cheap) and thus had to buy a cabinet to run it into and now have an Orange 2×12 cab in my room which is much larger than you might expect. The guy is shipping the head... […]

    Well its friday, I had another interview for a temp job yesterday and I think it went it ok. No real complaints but for some reason people have a hard time believing that I actually acquired certs through study. The point being I work hard, get good customer service stats and the economy isnt great... […]

    This is going pretty good. I’m learning and getting the hang of things. On a pretty basic short term project that may last a few months. No one is really sure but I got to come up with something perm or there may be some problems with, you know it costs money to live and... […]

    Well it’s Monday, I’m at work and I have a freshly repaired car. I had fun working on it and I think I’ll keep going down that path since it seem vaguely trustworthy at this point and buying something used seems to be in the 10k range for some thing in any way decent. That... […]

    Well its been a day, going to look at a car. Might buy it tomorrow. We will see how it goes. The entire thing is nerve wracking and annoying but my birthday is like a month away and I got my tag renewal notice so maybe I wont have to deal with that. Regardless this... […]
