    Members' Meeting 3/11/2021

    If you plan to attend, please RSVP at the bottom of the page!

    In spite of the continuing winter weather, many of us are looking forward to an exciting bicycling season in 2021. To get prepared for that, plan to attend the Missoula Bicycle Club's March Members' Meeting. There will be a brief business meeting to update everyone on our current financial status and an overview of your Board's view of this coming season. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the board and make suggestions about possible club activities for this 2021 season. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM, with the Virtual Meet open by 6:30 to allow for connection checks.

    In addition, Larry Lockwood, one of our newest Board Members will speak on the subject of "The Lure of Vintage Bicycles". Larry is fond of acquiring vintage bikes and refurbishing them to as close as possible original condition. He will display photos of some of his favorite bikes and discuss his strong interest in working with them.

    This meeting is open to the general public. 

    Only those who RSVP will receive an email with instructions on how to join the Google Meet.
