BFSC Ride Schedule March 17 & 18 - Sunday First Ride to Amelia Island

Sunday, March 18 is the first BFSC ride of the season to Amelia Island.

Have you made your reservation for the 2012 Beaches Frist Street Cycling bike kit and given your name for attending the Fit Kit Party in Marsh Landing. Need your name for the Marsh Landing guard gate, if you are attending.

The Sponsorship fees are helping to subsidize the first 100 bike kits (jersey & shorts) and the first 50 Wind Vest. After these quantities are met, you will need to add $15 to each item. We are at around 60 bike kits so get your reservation in quickly.

The 2012 Beaches First Street Cycling bike kits are ready to order now. Get your reservation/order into Beaches First Street Cycling email address at Bike Kit information is also on the blog.

The Bike Kit Fit/Sizing Party is March 24 @ 4:00 to 7:00 at Dave & Debbie Gottschalk Marsh Landing home. Bring your checkbook and an appetizer. Beer, wine & drinks will be provided.

We have also arranged a second Fit Kit for Wednesday, March 21 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Open Road Beaches store at 3rd Street & 10th Ave S next door to Sun Deli. Hopefully this will accommodate those BFSC riders that cannot make the March 24 Kit Fit party. If you need another time to try on a sizing kit, please contact Walter Campbell
