Secretary’s report: No March meeting. Brian moved that the February minutes be approved.
Andy seconded. Motion passed.
HUB report: it was slow, 12-15 people. Dan regrets having this the same day as the Bike Swap.
Bike Racks: We should think about installing them. Mario/BBBB has a bunch as well. Bring ideas for locations to future meetings
(note, we had some already picked out, Brian will bring to next meeting)
Our racks are simple “U”s that are tall and thin. Rings on the corners so no sharp edges.
Gravel Ride; there is a whole series including Aug 21, rides during Bike Fest, and September 15-16 with camping at the Houston Nature Center.
Bike La Crosse is hosting it this year (insurance and such)
Fifth board member: Chris S is interested, we need to get him a member of DRBC before he can serve on the board. he is running the Omnium.
Bike Week — Do we do anything? Brian will likely do something in La Crescent,
We discussed Bike Tours in general and how there used to be a lot but not many now. Several reasons were given (RideWithGPS, Kwik Trip open on Sunday, etc)
Bike Fest – No BBBB ride. Does the DRBC want to do a CRAP (Cheeseburger, Ride, Ales, and Pins) style ride?
Meeting adjourned 6:53
