• Volunteer Sign Up for Cat's Hill Classic is now OPEN!
As a member in the LGBRC, this is the time for your support of your club and teammates. The 45th Mike's Bikes Cat's Hill Classic is our largest fundraiser of the year and allows us to subsidize the purchase of your kits, pay race rewards, provide you with liability insurance and provide free memberships to juniors/students. Per your membership form, we expect your support.

For those who were not aware, our beloved 37th Spoke volunteer website died earlier this year, prompting us to find to scramble for a solution. After several painful attempts with several on-line volunteer management sites we finally found one that we believe comes close to meeting our needs:
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0844a9a72ea7f85-2018

It does look a lot different from what we have used previously, but is somewhat straightforward to use. However, like most all other changes in life there are good things and bad things to be aware of such as:

This site allows you to make your own changes without contacting Barry or myself. That's a good thing.

It doesn't stop you from signing up for 2 positions at the same time (at least we haven't found a way to stop this). That's a bad thing.

There are probably other differences we haven't found yet, so bear with us while using this site. Please let us know if you find any issues and we'll work to resolve them as fast as we can.
Regards,
Chris Twiggs

LGBRC Early History
The Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club began in 1960 when Bob Tetzlaff and Jack Hartman returned to Los Gatos following the Rome Olympics and three years in the U.S. Army. Together they organized the club featuring a series of training races for junior riders, including Greg Lemond. The Los Gatos Bike Club evolved into the development club the LGBRC is today.
