STANISLAUS COUNTY BICYCLE CLUB GRAN FONDO
TIMED SECTION RESULTS
The Modesto City Council, on a 5 to 2 vote, authorized City officials to negotiate a contract with AEG, the owner of the Amgen Tour of California, to use Modesto as a start city for one of it's stages for the race in May 2017. At the Council meeting Stanislaus County Bicycle Club members Susan Dion, Dave Cooperider and Jim Pyatt all enthusiastically supported this event pointing out the many benefits to the City and to area residents. Many of our members have served on the Local Organizing Committee and as volunteers in past years when the Tour went through Modesto. The actual routes and dates will be announced later this Fall. The Amgen TOC is recognized as the biggest bike race in the US.

New Share The Road Signs on Woodland Ave in Modesto
Stanislaus County Bicycle Club members RJ Corwin, John Gerling, and Chuck Shoup recently met with Stanislaus County Department of Public Works staff regarding the club's "Share The Road" sign project. Our goal is to improve the safety of those who ride this overpass daily and who ride on other roads in Stanislaus County. An anonymous donor paid for these signs.
