Celebration of Life for Jim White and Memorial Bike Ride

Jim White was a founding member of the Mid MN Cycling Club, a long time cyclist Jim loved the local mountain bike trails and was found at pretty much every trail work night.  He also reported on trail conditions especially if there was a tree down.  Come and Celebrate Jim's Life with cyclists, Nordic Skiers and his friends and family Friday night and join the Memorial Bike Ride on Sunday.
Jim's Celebration of Life Memorial Party is set for this Friday July 22nd at 6pm at the Regency (912 Regency Plaza, St. Cloud, MN.-Former MiFamiglia and across from Paramount Theatre on St. Germaine Street) Downtown St. Cloud.  I know many of us are planning to ride there in honor of his love of the "pub rides" and place some bikes out front...


There will be a memorial road ride to celebrate the life of James (Crash) White, set for this Sunday, July 24th. The ride will begin at 9am leaving from his house at 610 6th Ave S St. Cloud, MN. A short and long route are planned, with all abilities welcome. 


Pass along to anyone who knew Jim.

N. Loop AND Plum Creek/Riverbluff trails are CLOSED

The trail crew that showed up last night got a lot of work done with all the down trees, clipping and mowing (Thanks!!).  But the trail is just WET.  So we are officially CLOSING THE NORTH LOOP and PLUM CREEK/RIVERBLUFFS for the next few days.  The area has seen several inches of rain in the last few days and weeks.  Please stay off all the trails until we post them as open again.  Pass this info along to keep our trails in good shape.

Thanks!  MMCC Trail Care Crew

Thursday Baseball Game Ride

This just came in to the club via email: 

Thursday July 7th, 2011 departing the parking lot of Revolution Cycle and Ski at 5:30pm there is a group riding to the Joe Faber Stadium, the MAC, to watch a River Bats Game.  There is a free picnic starting at 6pm, then game follows at 7pm. Stay as late as you would like, don't worry about your bike as there will be valet bike parking, so enjoy a night with a bunch of friends at a baseball game.

Tickets are being sold for a greatly reduced rate for $12.00 at Revolution Cycle and Ski. That covers all the food, baseball game and valet parking.

If you decide not to bike to the game, no problem, meet us over there. Prefer not to bike home, there will be a trailer transporting bikes back to the shop.
