The Paceline

Come join us for a farewell ride for a longtime SAW member, Andy Hinck, who is also a former Ride Chair! He is moving to Pittsburgh and he will be missed! Later on Sunday, July 26th, there will be a get-together at Paesano's at 4 PM. Contact Kelley Martin at for details.


Fellow members, we are appealing to you for help as we are in need of ride starters. This is one of the easiest things you can do, but is also one of most difficult needs to fill. Ride starters are crucial to the club as they are the ones we all depend on to be there with maps, sign-up sheets, to greet guests and new members, to ensure all riders have someone with whom to ride, and to provide the pre-ride briefings.  

Anyone who has ever attended a Wheelmen ride has benefited from these volunteers who faithfully serve you and me. Try to imagine a club ride without them - but that is indeed a very real possibility.  

Right now there is a need for back-up starters, members who will pitch in to start one Saturday or Sunday ride about every 6 weeks or so. Currently our greatest needs are with the following rides:

Rebecca Creek / Rebecca's Mirror 
Toutaunt-Beauregard / Toutaunt Mirror
Southside Rides

Most of these rides already have starters, but we need folks to back them up. If you live in these areas or frequent these rides, will you consider helping the club, YOUR club, your fellow members, and guests by becoming a starter?

Any help, even if just for a few starts, would be appreciated. You don't have to make a long-term commitment. Please contact our Ride Chairwoman, Cindy Kuenzi at and let her know how you will support the club.

Let's ensure that each ride will have a starter so that we don't have to resort to leader-less rides.
