On Monday, May 13, a group of CBC and community cyclists met with Scott Davis, the Transportation Manager for Thurston County Public Works, to discuss the County’s preliminary plans for installing rumble strips. Those plans are a small part of a larger set of road enhancements designed to reduce run-off-road fatalities and serious injuries. Kudos to Roger Giebelhaus, a senior planner at Public Works (who happens to be a race team junkie) for setting up this meeting and helping it go smoothly.
Overall the meeting was very positive. Scott Davis was receptive not only to the feedback we provided at the meeting but also to the feedback from the 50 plus people who took the time to send the CBC comments on the rumble strips. (You really made a difference; Scott was impressed by the quality of your comments.)

It’s that time again. CBC’s first fundraising ride of the year – the Two County Double Metric Century – is scheduled for June 23rd this year. As you may or may not know, these rides fund CBC’s charitable events all through the year and are a major source of income that keeps our club financially healthy. Some of you know what it takes to put on these rides, a little planning and a lot of people! Maybe you have helped with our Two County ride in the past or maybe you’ve never gotten the opportunity to volunteer for one of these fundraisers, but it’s a great way to support your club.
We are now filling openings at roughly 50 shifts for this year’s ride, and if you are a long-time volunteer, maybe you’d like to volunteer for a spot you’re already familiar with.
The start location is the same as last year, Peter B. Schmidt Elementary School at 225 Dennis Street in Tumwater, and we had a GREAT turnout and lots of wonderful feedback from both locals and folks that came from out of the area to ride. We are expecting another good turnout this year and we are in need of a bunch of great people to represent the club at our rest stops, etc. As always, volunteers will ride for free either before or after their shift if they so choose.
Thanks so much for those who have helped in the past, and we look forward to working with and meeting all of you in the future.
