CIMG2295

2019 Argon 18 Gallium Pro, medium (~55-56cm).  Fast and nimble, very light.  Campy Super Record 11 speed mechanical shifters.  Medium cage Campy Potenza rear derailleur, Sram Force 22 front derailleur.  Campy Super Record skeleton brakes with extra color coordinated (red)  Kool Stop brake pads.   FSA carbon crankset, 50/34T.  Miche cassettes (2), 13-32T.  Rolf Vigor wheelset, Continental 4000 tires, 25mm.  Frame has clearance for 28 mm tires.  Zipp carbon bars, Zipp tape in excellent condition.  Look Keo blade pedals.  I have an 11cm Redshift stem, which can be part of the deal if you are interested.    $2000 OBO.  webmaster@lvcycling.club

 

Lake CX-145 winter road shoes, size 42, with Look Keo cleats, and two extra sets of cleats if you want them.  I have switched over to Crank Brothers pedals and shoes with recessed cleats, so I have no use for these.  Very warm, particularly with neoprene toe booties (not included).  These were replaced by the CX-146, which gives you an idea of what they are like.  Contrary to what Lake says on their site, I wear the same size as my summer road shoes, with a pair of Woolie Boolie socks.  Will trade these for a case of good beer.    webmaster@lvcycling.club

Forgedale Bridge Closure

Image

ROAD CLOSURE: Forgedale Road is expected to be closed on or about April 29, 2024 through October 2024 for PennDOT's Bridge Replacement Project at Forgedale Road over Bieber Creek (near 50 Forgedale Road, Fleetwood, PA). The State's planned detour route will utilize Lobachsville Road.

Forgedale road is a major cycling route and this closure will affect many ride routes heading into the Oley valley. Cyclists can use Sheep Hill and Orchard Rd to detour around the bridge but it will add a significant amount of climbing.

Summer Picnic - Help Needed!

Last year we had a great picnic at Upper Saucon Park.  This year we’ve reserved the pavilion for August 17th but need someone to lead the effort.  The location is taken care of and the routes are on our Ride with GPS account.  What’s needed is someone to take charge and coordinate the food, announcements, and other logistics. 

This is a great opportunity for someone who has been riding with the club to give back.  We have had good volunteers for many activities, but they tend to be the same people so we’re looking for some new people to step up.  Let me or any of the officers of the club know if you are interested.

LVCC Rides

With the riding season really getting into gear, I thought a few words about club rides would be in order.  Greg Schnabel held a ride leaders meeting a few weeks ago and the club is lucky to have so many willing leaders.  They work to outline routes and set expectations on speed, length and climbs.  In addition, the training in safety and emergency response helps keep our rides controlled and riders safe.  Some rides are no drop and leaders want the group to stay together while others are comfortable with faster riders going ahead.  The preference should be stated in the Meetup description.  Some leaders limit attendance while others will take out a large group.  Some are “spirited” rides while others are strictly social. 

Riders - please read the Meetup description and make sure the ride is a good fit for you.  If the ride leader has set the pace, don't go off the front without permission particularly if the ride is billed as a group or social ride.  As Paul Smith has said - be able and willing to ride the pace set by the leader.  If you have questions, put them into the Comment section on Meetup.  The rede leader has put effort into setting up the ride - please help them make the ride successful for all.  Volunteer to help out if you are comfortable doing so.  

Let’s work together to make our rides safe and fun for everyone.

Carl

Adopt A Highway

 

April 11, 2024

Jack Helffric

Lehigh Valley Cycling Club(Agreement #05300073)

RE:  Adopt-A-Highway Participation: 2024

Dear Jack Helffrich,

On behalf of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, I would like to express our appreciation to Lehigh Valley Cycling Club for your recent litter pick-up and for reporting your results to us.  PennDOT utilizes these statistics in many ways, with press releases being the most important.

Recent improvements to the program have made it easier to participate!  A new website has been created to provide groups on-line access to the AAH program, which can be found here: https://adoptahighway.penndot.pa.gov/.

These improvements enable groups to:

• Apply on-line,
• Use an interactive map to ‘point and click’ to select a roadway when applying,
• Request supplies for an event,
• Enter Trash Collections,
• Notify PennDOT after the event that bags are ready for pick-up,
• Update group information (contact, phone number, email address),
• Renew or Cancel their agreement, and 
• Communicate via email (contact your AAH coordinator to provide an email address)

These improvements will make volunteer participation less time intensive and much easier!  

Again, thank you for your commitment to the program and we look forward to partnering with you many years into the future.

Sincerely,

John Ciabattari

Adopt-A-Highway 

County Coordinator, Lehigh County
