Socializing begins around 5, with dinner and guest speaker to follow. This years presentation is general overview of ‘first response’ when handling a bike accident. Various scenarios will be played out, and will include a review of CPR. This will be presented by Steve Johnson...some of you may know him and his wife Kim. He is an EMT and athlete and sees the great value in teaching some important lessons to all of us. In addition, Collin and Caitlin will join us for conversations as Benidorm Bikes will he scheduling guided dirt road riding experiences with them.

In light of current events the EBCC board has decided to postpone the spring dinner. The event will be rescheduled, date TBD. An update will be posted to the #everyone group on the Slack site.

Although large get-togethers in closed spaces are being avoided right now, 24 mile bike rides around scenic reservoirs in the month of April are still a grand idea. Stay tuned on Slack for the Wed night Res Loop details happening next month.
