You may not know it, but Velo Club Monterey sponsors the local Junior Development Cycling Team which has been run by club member Gordon Martine for several years. The Junior Development Team has made great strides as they begin 2016. There are 7 juniors currently in the program. These young athletes (ages 13 – 16) include: Christina, Elijah, Louisa, Hanna, Sage , Ryan and Matthew.
The calendar may still say February, but you can see springtime from here and some early season organized rides are already on the horizon. Time to start training for one of the upcoming Central Coast rides that are an annual event for many Velo Club Monterey members.

Fellow VCM Members:
A message from VCM Board Member (and Sea Otter Coordinator)
Spring is nearly here and so is the Sea Otter Classic! The Sea Otter classic is one of the best ways to give back to the local and international cycling community—It’s our chance to be part of a world class cycling event that brings people from all of the world to our lovely peninsula. This event is also a boon to our local economy that benefits some of our most favorite local businesses.
For those of you who have volunteered in the past, thank you! I know it is not fun working long hours for zero pay, but your efforts do not go unappreciated. In fact, the modest revenue the club receives from the event helps fund our kickin’ holiday party and summer picnic.
I know we all have busy schedules, but please take a moment to look at the attached VCM volunteer program and let us know if you can find time to make this year’s Sea Otter Classic the best yet.
