Spring is here and so is our public service event season.
Weve got lots of events coming up, with something for everybody. No experience needed, just lots of enthusiasm. These two events are the ones that we really need your help for, the Fiesta Wildflower 100 and the Tour de Cure ride.
April 26th (Sunday) Fiesta Wildflower 100 Bicycle Tour. Still needing few more hams to help staff the 9 rest stops along the route, but no SAG drivers are needed. Last year 1,500 riders were registered. Start and finish will be at Morgans Wonderland, near Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks, on the northeast side. Event benefits Morgans Wonderland and it is an officially recognized Fiesta event. Last year the organizer gave us a $25 Valero fuel card (1 per rest stop) to help compensate for the cost of helping out. There hasn't been any promise this year so far, but I'll be asking.
May 9th (Saturday) American Diabetes Associations Tour de Cure Bicycle Tour. We need hams for 9 break points, 10 SAG vans, plus a few other assignments. We will have brand new routes and a new starting location this year due to the City of Selma passing an anti-bicycle ordinance. The event has been relocated to the south side of San Antonio, at the Texas A&M University campus on South Loop 410, near Zarzamora. Routes go east toward Floresville and the longer routes loop down to Pleasanton, TX, over to Poteet and back up to the University finish line. Atascosa County Hams will be helping with the southern part of the longer route and we welcome their support!
