RIDE FOR RONALD SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2014 FOREST CITY, IOWA 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.


8 year old Hayden Reynolds, son of Missy and Tony Reynolds, has called a bike ride along Hynes Spur Trail in Pammel Park, Forest City.  Six years ago Hayden stayed at the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, Minnesota, while his brother, Holden, recovered from surgery.  Hayden has personally donated to the House since.  This year he invites you to donate as he incorporates his love of biking with his appreciation for the services provided by the House.  Ride as you like, play on the playground, enjoy some free snacks, and bring a donation as your entry fee.  You will find a list of things needed by the House on the "Forest City Cycling Club" Facebook page.  Missy participated in the Wisconsin Ironman last month and Tony has participated in several Bicycle Blues & Barbeque events.  For more information, contact:  Missy Reynolds @ 641-251-4754 or reynoldsm@waldorf.edu.

If anyone wishes to donate but is unable to make the ride, I will be happy to come to Mason City Saturday morning to pick up any donated items.  Contact me:  earl@earlwhill.com or 515-851-1039.


I cannot count the times I have sat in a NITC Board meeting when someone asks how can we involve younger people in the great sport of cycling.  Here is an excellent opportunity to encourage this special young man.

  1. christania’s “Copenhagen Bike Rental” bikes are rolling across the

    city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of

    christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district,

    each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up

    to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation

    systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
