11/15/2014:  Hello Adobo Velo Members:

Your Adobo Velo annual membership is up for renewal for the year 2015.  Before you renew, think carefully, as we want YOU to be really sure that this is the club for you.  For example, below are some reasons (in no particular order) for staying in any club in general:

(A) Were you able to FIND THE TIME to ride with the club?  (Adobo Velo has weekly rides among various chapters, and we have a club-sponsored picnic/raffle ride or event almost every month.)

(B) Do you ENJOY RIDING WITH THE CLUB, and SHARING STORIES/PHOTOS on the club's Facebook? Do you get along with club members?  

(C) Is it important to you to have RIDE INSURANCE COVERAGE? (Adobo Velo provides club members with General Liability and Participant Accident/Medical insurance coverage during club rides).

(D) Did you purchase a CLUB KIT to "represent"?  (Adobo Velo kits are proudly made in the U.S.A. We have over 300 members who order kits, and the bulk low price is passed on to members:  Adobo Velo makes zero markup on kit sales.)

(E) At third-party organized rides (such as charity century rides, double century rides, etc) do you RIDE WITH OTHER CLUB MEMBERS, for "safety in numbers", or "the more the merrier"?  (Did you know that at some of these rides, Adobo Velo fills 10% to 30% of the ride roster?)  

If you answered "yes" to most of these questions, then you're probably getting good value for your membership.  If you answered "no" to most of them, we'd feel guilty about taking your dues again and not providing value.

REGISTER HERE  Applications from prospective new members, and from former members (e.g., resigned / removed / lapsed) are subject to review before membership is accepted.

 AdventureCorps events:"Special Thanks is extended to Francis 'Picachu' Ignacio, a four-time Furnace Creek 508 solo finisher, was up all of Friday night, cooking the super popular adobo Filipino food (adobo chicken, adobo pork, rice, and curry vegetables) for all the riders, then he spent all of Saturday working the finish line and keeping his home-cooked food warm and ready to serve. And now you know why his LA-based cycling club (which is open to riders from anywhere) is called Adobo Velo! (Several Adobo Velo riders participted, and several volunteered. They are a regular fixture at AdventureCORPS events: riding, volunteering, or both.)  " - Chris Kostman, AdventureCorps
