Chinook Cycling Club originated in 1986 for cyclists who enjoy the sporting aspects of cycling, including both national level competitive cycling and regional recreational competition. Over the years the club has grown, and the range of interests has expanded with it. However, we still retain our original focus as a club whose primary activities revolve around the sporting aspects of cycling. Our current membership includes riders with a wide range of interests and abilities, including some who are members of USA Cycling (formerly United States Cycling Federation), the national level competitive cycling organization. Club activities include: spring road training events, spring/summer time trial series, fall mountain bike events, trail maintenance, and trail building. Local groups that Chinook Cycling Club currently support include the Tri-City Bicycle Coalition, Friends of Badger, and Toys for Tots. Check us out on Facebook by hitting the link in the upper corner or if you have any questions send us an email at email@example.com.

Event # 5 at Echo OR, on November 18th. had 52 riders on a beautiful sunny Fall day. The trails were in near prefect condition. Thank you's go to Eric Jensen for helping set up registration and picking up course marking after the event; Roberto Mendiola and Derek Blanchard for bringing Hot Dogs and the makings, plus chips and cookies, then cooking the Hot Dogs; Echo Bike and Board for all the door prizes they donated; to Lloyd and Lois Piercy for letting us use the trails; and to Ice Harbor Brewing Company. Eric Hanson took a bad fall and did not do his shoulder any favors. Alan Feister stopped his ride and litterely gave Eric the "Jacket off his back". The jacket made made a great sling while Eric walked part way out. Ike Spivey drove in and picked up Eric and got him to the parking lot. Wishing Eric a speedy recovery.

EVENT # 3 - 58 riders came out and rode at Columbia Park Course. Nearly all finished before the rain started after a perfectly timed window of no rain. We had picnic tables with pop-up canopies over them for the the Bar-B-Q and door prize drawing. Greg Turpen was the chef cooking the hamburgers and hot dogs. Turpen and John Limbaugh set up snow-fencing in the finish area. With the tables near the course, we had a very festive atmosphere. Spectators rang cow bells for all the riders as they passed each lap. It was a fun day. Thank you to Ward Thompson, Shawn Brown and all the Nuclear Goat Heads who helped pick up the course markings. Dan Cooley and Pat Hawkins brought 2 canopies, Eric Jensen brought 2 and Chinook had 3.
