SBC Travels to expand to new events in 2019
What started out as one event in 2018 expands to several in 2019. In 2018 the Springfield Bicycle Club launched SBC Travels to encourage club members to travel and bike together when riding in events outside of the region.
The club’s first event was the Hilly Hundred, a two-day event in Ellettsville, Indiana in October. While a couple of riders carpooled, others drove separately. Their lodging varied as well, with some staying in hotels, another using Airbnb, and others tent-camping at the ride headquarters. Both mornings, though, the group met to begin the day’s 50-mile ride and often regrouped at rest stops. And despite the hills’ best efforts, everyone finished the ride. With SBC Travels events, members are responsible for registering themselves for each event and for arranging for travel and lodging to the rides. However, a designated club member who previously has biked the event will serve as a point person to help coordinate carpooling and communications as well as to answer questions about the event. Check the SBC Facebook page for up to date info.
