4/10/2021 - Happy Spring and Team Somerset 2021 Events

Hello all! I hope everyone is rolling into the spring well and managing best as possible through a rather difficult year. NJ has positives and negatives currently as it relates to the pandemic, but we are all hoping to move forward. When weather has permitted, our Sunday rides have gone well at both Readington Middle School and POPS Somerville and, while this weekend looks like a Sunday washout, hopefully next Sunday is much better and we keep moving forward.

I wanted to give the team a heads up that I am posting some information on the NJ Time Trial Cup Series FB page today on our proposed time trial events and dates this year. They are, as follows, of course pending appropriate progress of things in NJ and all the requisite approvals and permits necessary. Saturday dates:

Joe Saling and I have discussed and I have also made preliminary contact with the venues, towns, etc. There are pieces that need to be put together on this "Somerset Rural West Jersey TT Series" as I am calling it. LOL. As you all know, events don't happen with support. I do, however, want to ensure that all appropriate protocol and safety is in place for these and that only those comfortable race and volunteer. My expectation and hope is that we'll be in a better spot in late June, but it will be monitored closely and the races will look a little different and have as much "low or no" contact and social distance as we can add. Still working through categories and other parts of the puzzle, but wanted to give the team a heads up.

If there are questions, let me know. Once this comes together more fully, I'll reach out for volunteers etc in May as we get closer. As always, stay safe, but ride your bike and best to all of you, family and friends.
