What is the Andrew Spiller Memorial Ride?

It is a great day for RBC members and guests to gather in one place.  You can ride any number of miles during this daylong event.  This is the day when you can challenge yourself to ride a little further than normal, maybe even set a personal best for distance ridden in one day. Or it can be a day where you come out to do a comfortable ride and socialize with other riders. 

Picnic

Details haven't been worked out, but due to ongoing concerns with Covid-19  it most likely will not be a dish to share event.
Once again this year the club  we request those coming  please bring a dish to pass.   We would like to gather for a picnic around 1:00 .  After that we can go out riding again to work off those picnic calories. - or just hang out!   The Club will provide hot dogs, rolls and soft drinks and water.  Of course if you are not into hot dogs, feel free to bring the meat of your choice to grill.  

RBC Jerseys will be available for sale.

History of the Andrew Spiller Memorial Ride

The Andrew Spiller Memorial Challenge Ride was first held in 1989, organized by Mark Frank.  Andrew Spiller, a RBC member and long distance cyclist was tragically killed in June 1992 when he was hit by a car during a very long endurance ride. Andrew contributed to the club in many ways, and the Challenge Ride was renamed in his memory.  This is a great day to come out and ride and honor him.  

Let’s set a new rider attendance record this year.
