I'd like to get an idea of how many teams are interested in
riding in the fleche this year, as we need to make a determination on
the size of the finish location.
I'd like all teams or proposed teams who have not yet contacted me to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any preliminary information you have, such as:
Team members/bicycle types (single or tandem)
Proposed route (can be very simple initially, such as Hercules-SF via Davis
If you have chosen a captain, let the captain contact me. If you haven't chosen a captain yet then pick one member to contact me, so I don't get multiple confusing emails from everyone on your team. And don't worry if you don't know too much yet; the fleche is still more than two months away.
If you have already contacted me with your team info but have something to update (team membership, route changes, etc) feel free to drop me a line.
If you want to ride on the fleche but are not yet on a team, do not contact me. Instead, post to list expressing your interest in being on a team. Likewise, if a team is looking for additional members they can post on the list about the openings. A team must be composed of 3 to 5 members, but tandems count as a single member.
We should have the 2011 Fleche web page up shortly with detailed information.
