This page consists of a table of events and announcements, followed by articles and photos related to bicycling. Events in italics will have more details forthcoming.

Annual Prairie Cycle Club Membership Meeting and Dinner. Sunday, January 25th, 6 PM at Minneci's Restaurant (located in "The Crossing" retail area at the SW corner of Windsor and Duncan in Champaign---map) Socializing starts at 6 with a cash bar. The membership meeting, starting at 6:30, should only last 15 or 20 minutes, during which we elect/re-elect club officers and vote on any by-law changes (important for PCC's continuity). Dinner and continued socializing follows immediately afterwards!
The dinner, an Italian buffet with soft drinks costs $10 per person. Desserts and alcoholic beverages will be extra. (PCC will pick up the actual tab, including tax and tip.) So we can be sure to have enough food and drink, please RSVP to Sue Jones by January 22nd at siouxgeonz@gmail.com.
At the restaurant cash, credit and checks can be accepted for dinner and memberships. (To pay for the dinner on line, and, if needed, also join PCC, click here) Please RSVP whether or not you pay on-line.
