The March 2023 General Membership Meeting was held on Wednesday, March 8th at the Powhatan Secondary Clubhouse.  This pot-luck dinner/meeting was well attended and featured a presentation by Bruce White, a lifetime cyclist and member of the Fredericksburg Cycling Club since 1996.

Bruce has been involved with the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail since 2005 and for the last two years, has helped volunteer with the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance. Bruce served as a Scoutmaster of a Fredericksburg Scout Troop for 18 years and led 2 groups of Eagle Scouts on cross country bike trips in 2014 & 2018. In June 2022, Bruce organized and led a group of 25 cyclists on the entire September 11th National Memorial Trail, starting at the Pentagon Memorial in DC and biking up to the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA, then on to the Ground Zero Memorial in NYC before finishing back at the Pentagon Memorial, an 1,100 mile - 23 day bike tour. In 2023, Bruce will organize three events for this non-profit organization. The first will be the "Let's Roll" 12 Hour Endurance Ride to be held on the Dominion Raceway's 2-mile road course on Sunday May 28th. Next will be a bike tour from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, a 15-day ride from June 20 - July 3, followed by a 5-day event starting in Harrisburg and biking a loop to Gettysburg and back on October 8-12. Bruce talked about the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance and these upcoming events. Dinner format will be pot luck, so please sign up to indicate what food item you can bring (if you missed it, January was terrific!).  

Also at this meeting, Jim Day discussed the initiative to transition to a new Jersey/Kit provider (Ascend) and had on-hand a "fit kit".
