The Colorado Mesa University (CMU) Cycling Team is on a roll and you can help keep the momentum up by becoming a member of GJ VELO, Grand Junction’s new bike team. The purpose is to have a good time on our bikes while supporting the CMU Cycling Team. Please see the attached flyer and personal note from Tim Foster, President, Colorado Mesa University.
Members get weekly email news and group ride information, advance notice for CMU Winter Training time slots, discounts and free products from our sponsors, and we’ll have lots of other fun events. We’re placing an order for Castelli kits right now so we’re looking for new members until September 17th. The normal $100 annual donation is reduced to $50 for the remainder of 2017. Also, we’re getting in on the CMU Cycling Team kit order from Castelli so these Pro-Quality kits are only $150 (less than ½ retail!) for gender specific jersey + bibs or shorts – it’s $200 for ½ year membership including the kit.
Feel free to forward this to riders you think may be interested in joining the team and supporting CMU Cycling. This is going to be fun and we hope you’ll join us. To sign up go to: https://www.supportingcmu.com/gjvelo or call the CMU Foundation Office at 970-248-1080.
Once you sign up, I’ll send you instructions for fitting and ordering your kit. You can see what’s available now until September 13th at Bicycle Outfitters. Please note that this is for new members only – current members should have received their info already.
Thanks in advance for supporting CMU Cycling and if you have questions, please let me know:
From Tim Foster:
I would like to extend an invitation to you to join in a newly formed cycling team in the Grand Valley; GJ VELO. This team, primarily a road team, is for local cycling enthusiasts and will allow you to also show your support for the CMU cycling team.
I am looking forward to riding on this team, and I hope you will choose to do the same. Your involvement as a team member will also provide ongoing resources to the CMU Cycling Team Endowment at the CMU Foundation.
Join us and enjoy yourself as you ride as a member of GJ VELO. You should receive a follow up email or call from one of the team founders, Ed Chamberlin and Rick Taggart with more details.
