    Anthony DiSalvo will be at the Alameda Main Library teaching this class.

    We usually have light sets to give away if you attend.  01/16/2024 6-7pm.

    Biking at night can be fun, but it is important to plan ahead and make sure you always have the right equipment to be visible every time you get on your bike. This class will help you:

    • See and be seen in all conditions
    • Meet and exceed the CA legal requirements for lights and reflectors
    • Choose the right lights for the type of bicycling you'll be doing
    • Bling out your bike and yourself with highly visible accessories!

    The 2023 Team Alameda “away weekend” of riding is only a week and a half away!  Just like last year, we are going to hit the roads around the Russian River and will have our “base” be downtown Occidental.  

    The dates are October 20th (Friday) to 22nd (Sunday).

    The Occidental Lodge, which is in downtown Occidental and close to several restaurants, set aside a block of 10 rooms for us. Please check out the lodge at https://www.occidentallodge.com/.  Call the lodge to make reservations and tell them that you’re with “Team Alameda”. Their phone number is (707) 874 3623.

    If you would rather stay somewhere else in the area, or you didn’t jump on the reservations in time and the Lodge is all booked up, here are other options in the area:

    • Inn at Occidental (really close by)
    • Inn at the Tides in Bodega Bay
    • Lots of other hotels and AirBNBs in Guerneville

    We will have options for riding, both distance and pace, and will do our best to make sure that everyone has places for refueling along the way.  We are organizing a SAG car for us.  We hope that you consider joining us for a fun weekend of riding.  Please let us know that you are intending to join in on the fun by joining our Discord thread at #away-ride-occidental-2323, or dropping me an email at president@teamalameda.org, so that we can be sure to include you in our dinner reservations and ensure that you are part of the crowd when we roll out for our rides.  If we have not heard from you by this Friday the 13th, we cannot guarantee that we will have a seat for you during our group dinner on Saturday.

    I saw Shimano recalled 680,000 cranks today. The recall lists any cranks manufactured prior to July 2019, including the FC-R8000. I have an FC-R8000 from 2021, manufacturing code “TA” (so after July 2019, since these codes progress alphabetically).

    This recall involves Shimano Ultegra FC-6800, Dura-Ace FC-9000, Ultegra FC-R8000, Dura-Ace FC-R9100 and FC-R9100P, 11-Speed Bonded Hollowtech Road Cranksets, manufactured prior to July 2019 sold individually and on bicycles sold by other manufacturers such as Trek and Specialized. The recalled models have printed ‘Ultegra’ or Dura Ace’ logos on the arm. The affected models are pre-July 2019 production and have the following two letter production code on backside of the crank arm where the pedals are attached: KF, KG, KH, KI, KJ, KK, KL, LA, LB, LC, LD, LE, LF, LG, LH, LI, LJ, LK, LL, MA, MB, MC, MD, ME, MF, MG, MH, MI, MJ, MK, ML, NA, NB, NC, ND, NE, NF, NG, NH, NI, NJ, NK, NL, OA, OB, OC, OD, OE, OF, OG, OH, OI, OJ, OK, OL, PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF, PG, PH, PI, PJ, PK, PL, QA, QB, QC, QD, QE, QF, QG, QH, QI, QJ, QK, QL, RA, RB, RC, RD, RE, and RF.

    United States Consumer Product SafetCommission recall statement

    The USCPSC site list says consumers with an affected crankset “should

    immediately stop using the cranksets manufactured before July 1, 2019,

    and contact an authorized Shimano dealer to schedule a free crankset

    inspection. 

    “Only consumers whose cranksets show signs of bonding separation or delamination during the inspection will be provided a free replacement crankset and installation.”

    Hey all,

    Just a reminder that there is a section of our website, under Forums, where you can find lots of interesting information.  Just now, six very nice road and mountain bikes were posted out under the Bikes and Gear forum, and a free TA jersey is being offered under the General forum.  Check it out! :)

    You can also subscribe to the forums that interest you so that you are alerted when a new posting is made on the forum.

    Thanks.

    Mark Pryor sent a few of us this URL that lists road closures in our area.  Lots of hill roads that we ride often are on the list.  Be safe and here's to drier days ahead (but with thanks to our various reservoirs getting refilled!!!)

    CALL FOR CANDIDATES

    Every September the Team Alameda Board issues a “Call for Candidates”.  This is that “Call”.

    We are looking for volunteers to help run the organizational side of our club for the next 2 years (from January 2023-December 2025).  If you have ever given thought to giving back to Team Alameda, or to helping TA improve our club, this is a great way to do that — and a perfect time to get involved at a new level.  

    Board members are elected for a 2-year period.  Approximately 1/2 of our board members’ 2-year term ends each year.  Some will run again, others will not.  This year we have 2 board members who are stepping down, leaving a total of 3 open seats available (we had 1 vacancy from earlier this summer).  It would be great to have 3 or more volunteers step up to fill those vacancies!  If you are interested, or if you have questions, please contact any of our current board members (their email addresses are listed on the About Us->Board of Directors page on our website).  

    The nominating period opens on September 1st and will

    close on September 30th.

    The slate of new candidates shall be presented to the Board at its regular October meeting.  If the number of candidates is equal to or less than the number of open seats at the time the nominating period closes (September 30th), all candidates shall be deemed elected, and the result will be published to the membership.

    Should there be more candidates than there are open board seats, the following election process will be followed:

    1.  Voting shall be conducted electronically, with voting instructions e-mailed to all members and posted in an appropriate “members only” section of the website not later than October 15th.

    2.  Voting shall take place during the period October 21 - 27 and the results shall be published to the membership not later than October 31st each year.

    The specific positions and functions for each Director is decided by the Board each January at its regular business meeting, at which time the Board also shall elect its officers for the year (see Article V).

    The board meets for approximately 1.5 hours monthly.  We are a great group of dedicated riders who love the Club and what it has brought to our lives.  Please consider joining us and helping us promote the club and continue offering great group rides for the Alameda community.

    We are very excited to announce that the Team Alameda “away weekend” of riding is officially happening for 2022!  We are going to hit the roads around the Russian River, and will have our “base” be downtown Occidental.  

    The dates are October 14th (Friday) to 16th (Sunday).

    The Occidental Lodge, which is in downtown Occidental and close to several restaurants, has set aside a block of rooms for us - see https://www.occidentallodge.com/. To get one of the reserved rooms, please call them and tell them that you're with Team Alameda. There is no special discount for Team Alameda, but they set rooms aside for us. Their phone number is (707) 874 3623.

    If you would rather stay somewhere else in the area, or you didn’t jump on the reservations in time and the Lodge is all booked up, here are other options in the area:

    • Inn at Occidental (really close by)

    • Inn at the Tides in Bodega Bay

    • Lots of other hotels and AirBNBs in Guerneville

    We will have multiple options for riding, both distance and pace, and will do our best to make sure that everyone has options for refueling along the way.  We are organizing a SAG (support) car.  We hope that you consider joining us for a fun weekend of riding.  Please let us know that you are intending to join in on the fun by dropping us an email at away2022@teamalameda.org, and let us know if you booked a room at the Lodge.
