Just about done!

What’s “Just about done”? Our supply of Calendars. Out of about 21,000 copies printed this year, we now have only a few hundred remaining. The Calendars are “out there” doing their job of promoting bicycling events for the benefit of Ohio’s cycling community. The many thousands went out to bicycle shops, clubs, and individuals all across Ohio and in portions of neighboring states. We’d like to end the season with no Calendars…

If your club or bicycle shop needs a supply of Calendars, please contact us ASAP so you can be in…

Delivery, these days, to us actually means the beginning of distribution, most of which is now handled by the printer on our order.…

Yikes!

Emails and stacks of physical letters pour in and we try and keep them straight. Often, event promoters send in both an email and a paper version of the same material, so twice the paper there. We register and deposit donation and advertising…

Right now we are receiving listing information from all around the state and are organizing it in preparation for editing.

Questionnaires Mail in November

The Event Questionnaire is our annual effort to gather the latest information about bicycle events for our Calendar. The form and letter go out in November again this year for next year’s publication. This time, however, we’ll have a couple of ways for event promoters/hosts to complete their homework. As we have done in all previous years, a printed form and cover letter will be sent via USPS to the contact addresses…
