*******************************************************
Greetings NoVA CBG members,

Being a member of NoVA CBG gets you all the super awesome rides we do from Introductory to Advanced Levels with all our great Organizers doing all the fun, fantastic, and creative things that they do. Oh the places you can visit on your bicycle !!!

However, do you know what else your $10 annual CBG membership is used for and what it gets you? Quite a lot actually. If you are a new member this should help in making that decision to become a card carrying, dues paying, member of NoVA CBG. If you're already a member this should remind you why you pay your dues every year.

We now have a Ride with GPS Club Account to allow our members to get/print custom Cue Sheets, download TCX or GPX files for your Garmin, as well as use the Ride with GPS app on their smart phone to get TURN by TURN navigation for our posted ride routes.

3) Alexandria Massage Therapy Discounts
http://www.alexandriamassagetherapy.com/
Ask for massage therapist Maggie Kreigh.
**************************
Maggie Kreigh is a former physical therapist who knows how to handle sports (cycling) related muscle issues.
* $10 off 1st time discount - On your first appointment you'll get $10 off.
* 10% off any regular priced massage after that.
* Let them know you are a member of NoVA CBG to get this benefit.

**************************
4) Spokes Etc. Discounts
https://www.spokesetc.com/
**************************
These discounts are available at any Spokes Etc. location:
* 10% off discount on the purchase of any non-sale products.
* 5% off discount on any non-sale bicycles.
* 15% off discount during special training classes on select items.
* There is NO discount on any labor charges.
All you have to do is let them know you're a member of NoVA CBG. They probably will go "huh?" unless you're at Quaker or Belle View ... so just tell them it's the same discount as they give to WABA. They love us and make that discount go a long way.

**************************
5) Tuesday TubesDay / Gear / Maintenance / plus Other Classes
**************************
* Tuesday TubesDay: Every third Tuesday of the month is Tuesday TubesDay where NoVA CBG holds a "hands on" class that teaches YOU (yes you) how to change your own tube on your own bike to fix any flat tire you may encounter. On these days you get 15% off at Spokes Etc for those needed accessories.
* Gear Changing / Maintenance / Garmin classes are held when possible.
* These classes are FREE to NoVA CBG members.

**************************
6) Bike Box Usage
**************************
Did you know we own a bike box? Well, Gary owns one and only uses it once in a while when dragging his bike across the country/world. So if you need it for your travels you can simply ask me to use it and Taaa Daaaa... you can.
* This usage is FREE to NoVA CBG members.

**************************
7) Supporting Local Charitable Efforts
**************************
Our Charitable Motto: "Ride Bikes, Do Good Things".
As a group we have opportunities throughout the year to support and contribute to various charitable cycling events.

**************************
8) The CBG Summer Company Picnic:
**************************
Every summer CBG throws a HUGE what I like to call our "Company Picnic" ... hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, ice cream, BEER (Thanks Carl!), balloon toss with trophies, bike rides, corn hole, etc..etc... For those that remember when companies used to do this, don't fear, we still do it here at NoVA CBG. It's a great way to say "Thank You" to the organizers and members of CBG.
* This event is FREE to NoVA CBG members
(who also bring a dish to pass :)

**************************
9) The CBG Holiday Party:
**************************
You thought the Company Picnic was a big event... try doing the same thing during the Holidays. Guess what, it's even BIGGER!! Such a great evening collecting toys for donation, giving bicycles to foster children, playing games, shooting pool.. and of course the obligatory "holiday cheer".
* This event is FREE to NoVA CBG members
(who also bring a toy to donate :)

**************************
10) Bike In Movies (Winter)
**************************
As if Spokes Etc wasn't nice enough, they let us bike INDOORS over the winter time at their Quaker lane location. It's a great time watching movies and biking with our own bikes on CBG owned trainers keeping all those summer muscles up to snuff.
* This event is FREE to NoVA CBG members

**************************
11) Friends of CBG:
**************************
Every once in a while CBG comes across businesses that do great things that cyclists need. I'm going to use this section to list them so you too can take advantage of these establishments:

* Bradlee Shoe Repair:
3640 King Street Alexandria VA[masked]https://www.facebook.com/bradleeshoerepair/

Don't let the name fool you, sure they do expert repair on shoes, but they are "Master Craftsman" when it comes to most materials. For example, I brought them my Topeak Trunk Bag that I had for many years as one of the seams had come undone and now had a hole in it. They stitched it back up and only charged $20. So if you have a favorite item that you need fixed, give these guys a try.

* Bike Fit By Smiley: http://bikefitbysmiley.com/
Smiley el-Abd is a professional bike fitter that has fit a number of members of CBG.
-- Don't forget to tell them that CBG (Gary) sent you.

**************************
Thanks to all for joining, riding, and continuing to be card carrying members of NoVA CBG. And remember.... Stay Casual !!!
