    2019 Donations

    As you may know, each year the Cleveland Touring Club (CTC) donates funds to a number of cycling-related causes. In 2019, the Leadership Council (LC) drafted a plan to spend our advocacy dollars. It was posted on the club forum web page  and members were invited to share their thoughts on how the funds are to be distributed.

    The LC carefully reviewed all member comments.  The result is we left the plan unchanged.  As usual, the Kirtland Library is on the list since the LC uses the library meeting rooms.

    At this time, the LC submits the following list of donations for you to vote upon, as a single package (yes or no vote).

    Our cycling advocacy donation proposal is as follows (click a donation candidate for more information):

     World Bicycle Relief
     $ 500
     Ohio City Bicycle Co-op (OCBC)  $ 500
     Ohio Bicycle Federation  $ 500
     Kirtland Library  $ 250
     iCanShine / iCanBike  $ 500
     Bike Cleveland
     $ 500
     League of American Bicyclist  $ 500

    • Registration (Online) Deadline - Wednesday, Dec 4th. Hurry up and reserve your spot at the party!

    It's time to celebrate the holidays with your CTC friends! The holiday party will be held once again at the Environmental Learning Center.  Join us for socializing, food and fun as we celebrate the holidays. Begin the party with a hike through the woods (or snowshoe, if there is enough snow), or just join later for socializing and food with friends. There will not be a gift exchange this year. And the food is being catered (vegetarian options available).

    Last year several people suggested that a homemade dessert bar would be a nice touch, since many people like to bake, so this year we've added that option. If you would like to bring a dessert, please indicate that when you register.

    Join your CTC friends on Sunday, December 8th, for CTC's Annual Holiday Celebration!

    We need a few volunteers for set up and clean up.  If you are interested, please state that on the registration form. 

    For questions or to discuss volunteering, contact Sarah Vangilder by email at  hawkeyefan4411@sbcglobal.net  or call/text at 216-509-9646.
