Start the year off with a ride. On Sunday, Jan 7th NER will be holding our first 100k of 2018. The ride starts from Ride Studio Cafe (RSC) (Lexington, MA) at 9:15am and uses a route to Harvard MA which hasn't been used in a few years. As an added bonus, this ride is FREE to all riders and we'll even buy you the hot beverage of your choice upon return to RSC.
More details are on the Sunday Series
Jon Doyle and Jake where the only ones to ride to the start. It was brutally cold, around -6f. Riders did the sensible thing and stayed home. (Although frequent rider Henry went out for his own hour long ride.) We like the route so we're re-running it on Feb 4th. The cost is $5 unless you're a NER member
. Thanks again to our friends at RSC for letting us use the cafe as a start/finish.
All current New England Randonneurs members are invited to the yearly NER Members Meeting scheduled for December 3rd @ 2pm. The members meeting is a formal opportunity for NER members to convene and discuss any matter related to NER as an organization. At this time there are no agenda items. To add topics to the agenda, email NER President Jake Kassen or simply attend the meeting. The meeting will take place at 87 Monument St. #2, Medford, MA.
Coinciding with the meeting will be a small party that will begin immediately after the 100k "Sunday Series" ride
which starts at 9am on Dec 3rd. Everyone is invited to the ride and party including new riders. (You need not ride to attend the party or Member's Meeting.)
We hope to see everyone there for homemade chili and other snacks as well as the last NER event of 2017.
New England Randonneurs, Inc. is a member based organization, overseen by a Board of Directors which is elected by the membership yearly. Our BOD is critical to the success of the organization. If you have enjoyed the NER rides in the past and would like to further the organization, please consider running for the board. We generally have 3-4 hour-long conference calls yearly with periodic email discussions at other times. The board determines NER's priorities, event fees, resolves potential difficulties, etc. Board members must be NER members.
In addition to general board members, we are particularly looking for someone with modest accounting skills who can take over as treasurer. (The NER President, Clerk, and Treasurer are board members who take on these roles.)
To nominate yourself or someone else, send a short candidate statement to email@example.com
You may also address board and election questions to this address.
Nominations must be received by November 15th, 2017. The general election ballots will mailed to current NER members shortly thereafter.
