Join us for our club meeting at Lucha Cantina at 7p on Wednesday, January 29th. We have food, there’s drink special, and a great agenda. Mark Robinson from Precision Sports Training is our main speaker, but we also have a couple special guests you will be interested in. Mark will be discussing injury prevention tips related to endurance sports.
Atwood Fat Bike Race #4 is Saturday, February 15
RRM members can attend the PSX class Saturdays at 10:30a and Thursdays at 5:30p. No catches, just show up and be ready to work out.
Don’t forget to pay your 2020 dues for the club. No PSX or super special RRM benefits until you do. The easiest way is to go straight here and pay through our website. Same cost as last year!
If you haven’t been to a meeting before, we would love to have you. They are a pretty casual affair from roughly 7-9p. Grab some food, grab a drink and say hello. We have speakers every month on topics of interest chosen by club members. It’s also the first place you will hear news, get access to special deals (remember us talking about a Cervelo deal that Ben Hoffman helped facilitate?), and you can get your club gear (shirts) there as well. If you have questions about the meetings, just click reply and if I don’t have the answer I’ll find it for you. If you haven’t paid your 2020 RRM dues yet, the meeting is a great place to do so.
Hopefully you’re able to get out and play in the snow. It’s crazy to think how little snow we have had so far this year. I sure wouldn’t mind a little XC skiing or fat bike riding.
If you have been following us for a bit, you know that spring is when we host a LOT of events. Be sure to mark your calendars for the following:
Sunday, March 29th – Cyclocross at Alpine Hills
Sunday, April 19th – Cyclocross at Atwood
Sunday, April 26th – Cherry Valley 20k Time Trial
Saturday, May 3rd – Duathlon and 2 mile run (Cinco DU Mayo!)
We would love to have you at all of them!
Have a great week!

RRM Club Meeting

Atwood Park Face Bike Race Series
Hosted by Rockford Park District
Hosted by Freeport Bicycle Co and Stu’s mom.
Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 9:00 AM
American Legion Post 197
403 Main St, Pecatonica, Illinois 61063
New this year we have a 30, 40, or 50 mile option. We were offering this last year but the weather had us change plans. Its still the same self supported gravel road “race” put on by Freeport Bicycle Company.
Once again we are starting at the American Legion Post 197 in Pecatonica Illinois. Its always a FREE event, but donations are appreciated. Every dollar you drop in the bucket will go to the Freeport Area Church Cooperative to help house and feed those who are impoverished. They were our recipients of the donations last year but I think we can do better.
The route has some hills, most of it is on gravel roads, and the course is not marked. Some folks will race this, some will ride it, and for some it will be an adventure getting lost in the countryside. Be prepared, dress for the occasion, and make sure you are confident in your equipment.
Pecatonica has plenty of street parking around the Legion Hall. Arrive a little early, so you can get signed up and grab a map. Registration will be in the warmth of the Legion. When you arrive back from your ride there will be food for purchase and most likely some free beer. Mark you calendars, it should be an epic day.
Local Cycling Related Events
Club member Ryan Satterlee made a big list of most of local and regional bike related events for 2020. You should check it out at http://nicyc.com/.
Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additions. It’s incredibly robust already. (For real, this is still an active thing in 2020)
Rock River Multisport is a non-profit club based in the Rock River Region of Northern Illinois. RRM is built by endurance focused athletes of all skill levels.
RRM focuses on creating a community for collaborative training and mentorship and seeks to promote healthy lifestyles through local opportunities for its members to train and race with a supportive group of like-minded individuals.
We pair athletes together for training and racing opportunities and seek sponsors and local partner affiliations to help our athletes make and achieve their athletic goals in a number of endurance sports (swimming, running, cycling, triathlon, x-country skiing, endurance racing, inline skating, etc.).
Most importantly of all, we want to create a fun atmosphere for people who are interested in sharing what it takes to compete in endurance sports and enjoy life.
While predominately a social club, expect to see exciting training and racing events in areas currently missing from the area!
