Honoring Craig Mosely



June 22, 1958 to August 19, 2020

After a courageous battle we lost Craig to pancreatic cancer. Craig held several positions within BRBC, but the three most important ones were as the BRBC President, Ride Director, and Ride Leader. His leadership as the President helped BRBC to grow to almost 700 members. But he will be most remembered for his role as a Ride Leader where he welcomed all riders no matter what their skill level, and made sure that they knew he would stay with them.

The Blue Ridge Bicycle Club [BRBC] is raising funds until November 1, 2020 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to honor the memory of Craig. BRBC will be contributing $2000 to add to total member donations.  If you would like to make a donation in his memory please use one of these links:

Strava Replaces Mileage Log 

 To use Strava you will need either the App on your Smartphone or a GPS based bike computer.  There are two options; a free account or a feature laden monthly subscription plan - Strava Summit.  A few of the many advantages of using Strava are: track all of your ride parameters, including heart rate and cadence, it keeps a map of your ride, you can follow friends, and rides can be automatically uploaded. Some inputs require extra sensors. But perhaps the greatest advantage is that Strava compiles ride statistics that allow transportation planners to use the data to plan bicycle infrastructure.

Our thanks to Lee Pirtle for his past help in developing and maintaining the mileage log.
