Will you SAG for our Mt Baldy Ride on October 30?

Would you like to provide SAG for our ride up Glendora Mountain Road to Mt Baldy Village on Sunday, October 30, 2016?

There is no water available along Glendora Mountain Road or Glendora Ridge Road, so we generally appreciate it if someone meets us half-way along the route with water, bananas and etc.

If you're interested in helping us out, please contact Bryan Blumberg.  The club will buy you lunch at Mt Baldy Lodge for your trouble.

Welcome to the new Different Spokes website!

Welcome to the new Different Spokes website!

This site is based on Google Blogger, Google Drive, Google Forms and Google Calendar.  This will save our club $300 per year.

Also, the old Website was coded in Cold Fusion about 15 years ago.  We were not able to maintain it.

If you have any comments, complaints, suggestions, constructive criticisms or anything else to say about this new website, please post a comment.

Offer suggestions to this new website

Hi Different Spokes Members! We're planning on retiring the club's old website. We have been using it for the last 14 years, so it is becoming difficult to maintain. It also costs us $300 per year to keep it up and running.

In its place, We have been working on a whole new website that is based on Google Blogger. So, we're asking any of you out there who would like to help me out with some feedback.

Please give us your suggestions by commenting. Please try accessing this website from a computer, an Android or an iPhone. Click on ALL of the links to see how you like them. Thanks a lot.
