Amishland Volunteer Sign-up

Posted on April 9, 2015

Volunteer

Amishland and Lakes (aka ALL) is just 60 days away. It takes a significant effort by over 100 volunteers to make ALL happen. We need the assistance of the entire club membership to fill over 200 volunteer slots.

Membership dues only pay for about 15% of the clubs annual budget. The rest of the budget is funded by the profit we make on Amishland. Those profits also enable the club to support cycling in our community, in our state and nationally.

We will be using an on-line volunteer system this year (no more red book). The on-line system will allow you to look through all of the volunteer slots at your convenience and find the best spots for you. Please be sure to enter your t-shirt size.

To encourage volunteers to sign-up and to recognize those who do we are making some changes to our volunteer rewards.

1) If you volunteer 3 hours or more you get an Amishland T-shirt

2) If you volunteer 6 hours or more you get free Amishland Registration

3) If you volunteer 18 hours or more you get 4 free Amishland meals

4) All volunteers who work 3 or more hours will be entered in a drawing for 3 gift cards ($100, $50 and $25)

5) All volunteers will be invited to a volunteer recognition party in October

Bonnie Yoder is the volunteer coordinator for Amishland again this year. Contact Bonnie if you have any questions about volunteering. E-mail her at: marbonyod@att.net

If you earn free Amishland Registration and are going to ride Amishland you will also need to complete a Volunteer Registration / Waiver form. Mail in the form or hand it to Bonnie Yoder or Dick Kuehl. The volunteer registration form is here.

You may order a Jersey, Shorts or a Cap at our Pactimo Team Store. The password is amishland.

Starter Ride

Posted on May 5, 2015

The Starter Ride is designed to provide a predictable group ride for new or casual road bike riders. The group will be lead by 2 experienced MBA bikers. The group will go 15-20 miles at 12-13 mph and stay together (no drops) for the entire ride. The Starter Ride series will continue through the riding season (May to September), always on Saturday at the same location and start time as the regular MBA ride. You do not need to be a member of the MBA to participate in the Starter Ride (or any other MBA ride).

Leisure Ride

Posted on May 5, 2015

This year the Leisure Ride season will be extended to include May on the front end and September on the back end. As in previous years the leisure rides will be on Mondays at 6:00 pm, always starting from Pinhook. Leisure rides are perfect for new riders, families and anyone who wants ride at slower pace with a group that stays together. The leisure ride takes advantage of access to the bike paths along the river and on the Notre Dame campus. The ride will be 11-12 miles at about 10 mph. You do not need to be a member of the MBA to participate in the Leisure Ride (or any other MBA ride).
