Hi Team Evesham Teammates!!
This past weekend we had many riders participating in the Foster 100, including myself for the first time. The Foster 100 is one of our promoted Charity events of the season. Nick, the event promoter, calls this “a Charity Ride like no other” and I have to agree. Riders stay together in “platoons” with the spirit of no rider left behind. These platoons are much like our ride groups on our Sunday rides with a leader keeping riders together and organized. They had some amazing rest stops and the after party at the Aviation Museum in Wildwood was fantastic!
This coming weekend is another cyclists’ favorite event – the MS City to Shore. Many Team Evesham members will be participating in this event including a team called Kelly’s Hero’s. Kelly’s Heroes is named for Kelly Comber who suffers from MS. Kelly’s husband, Kevin Comber, is a long time Team Evesham Member and put this team together to honor his wife and help support the MS society. We wish all of the MS City to Shore riders a fun, safe weekend of riding.
As promised on social media, stay tuned for Team Evesham Non-Cycling Apparel. We will Have Polo Shirts, T- Shirts, Ball Caps, and Fleece sweatshirts available to order at the end of this year. The polo shirts are modeled below by our Board of Trustees…
Lastly, Save the Date! Team Evesham’s Annual After Holiday Party will be Saturday, January 25th from 6-10. Stay tuned for more details!
For those of you signed up to participate in the Foster 100 on September 14th, 2019, representatives from Foster 100 will be on hand before our regular Sunday ride on September 8th to distribute rider packets and rider information!

Join us Sunday Morning at Rastelli’s at for our first mini clinic starting at 7:15am. To add value to your Team Evesham Membership we will be holding a series of mini clinics before our Sunday rides to help teach basic bike maintenance and safety skills. If you have a topic of interest please email Scott@TeamEvesham.org and we will add it to our list of mini clinics.
This past Sunday was a great day to be a Team Evesham Member and cyclist. We once again held our fall BBQ event – The Grill and Chill and it was a huge success with fun for all that attended. We had over 125 members ride with us and enjoy the party at Ott’s Greentop where they BBQ’d and treated us like royalty. We had beautiful weather, a great ride and awesome food as we enjoyed hanging out with teammates enjoying camaraderie and celebrating cycling.
This week we will have our regularly scheduled rides including the Friday Morning C+/B ride, Saturday Morning C+/B/B+ ride and Sunday all level ride. We look forward to seeing you on the road!

This event has always been a Team favorite as we get to hang out together, eat some delicious food and talk about all of our riding experiences! Check the website for the routes and start times.
This past week offered some beautiful weather for Cycling. Unfortunately, we did have to cancel our Wednesday night C+ and B+ ride due to the phantom storms, the weather report was just too ominous. Friday we had our C+/B pace morning ride, Saturday morning we had our usual Rastelli’s ride and also had a Hill Ride lead by Michael Gibbs. Thank you Michael for stepping up and leading this ride! Sunday, of course, we had our All Level ride with some great routes to Nixon’s in Tabernacle. A favorite stop for Cyclists to take a break and get some refreshments. The weather was hot and muggy, so this stop was well deserved!
Don’t forget our future events: Save the dates…
We hope to see you all on the road this week!

We had to cancel our NEW Wednesday B+ and C+ ride due to weather, but we did have our Friday morning B Ride with Rich, Dennis and Ross, Saturday B and C+ Ride led by David Breslau, Scott Downie and Dan Zingaro, and Sunday we held our All Pace ride. The weather was beautiful to get in some miles. Keep an eye on the website for more upcoming Team Evesham rides with new starting points and new rest stops.
This coming weekend will bring some of the hottest temperatures that we have seen, Team Evesham will still be riding but we will mandate that everyone has TWO water bottles. Please use every bit of caution when riding this weekend. You should go through at least 2 bottles per hour according to this Bicycling Magazine article.
Not only did team Evesham have our usual Saturday B ride, we also added a C+ and a B+ ride to give more value to our team members. Thanks to Dan Zingaro, and Leslie & David Breslau we will now offer three ride levels on Saturday! If you’re looking for a bike ride on Saturday, check out the Team Evesham ride.
This past Sunday Team Evesham embarked on one of our favorite routes, taking us to Riverton and along the Delaware River Bank. There were three different length routes for riders to choose from to keep everyone smiling. Several members stopped along picturesque Bank Street in Riverton (above) to pose for photos that are already circulating around social media. Riverton was once a getaway community for the wealthy from Philadelphia. Riverton is known for its beautiful Victorian homes, river front views, Quaint downtown area, and the Riverton Yacht club.

Remember: In life; it’s not where you go, but who you ride with…
With some precarious weather this past weekend we decided to cancel both our Saturday Hill ride and Local ride because of the forecasts of possible rain. Well, the weather decided to throw us a curveball and it didn’t rain until the afternoon. So we regrouped and watched the forecast closely and decided to wait until the last minute to make a call on Sunday’s ride. This, fortunately for us, was the right decision and we had a beautiful morning to ride some great routes to Murphy’s Market in Tabernacle.
With this the first ride of July we have many more weeks of riding and events to share with great teammates! Remember “In Life, it’s not where you go, but who you ride with!”
That’s right the Team Evesham jersey has been spotted in Japan, Italy, China, Jamaica, Canada, Israel, Mexico, Australia, and a score of other places. Folks in those countries can’t buy one. But you can join the cool kids and order the entire line up of incredible looking Team Evesham cycling gear from our supplier Voler right now. These garments are made right here in the USA and if you order now, your kit will ship at the end of August.
Many of our members have found the Voler cycling gear to be of exceptional quality and at a more affordable cost than their competition since you are purchasing the gear at our team’s wholesale cost. Order now and remember this gear is for our members only. Please don’t sell these items to other riders.
Here’s how to purchase your Official Team Evesham Cycling Gear:
Another excellent week of cycling is in the books but we’re looking forward to much, much more this year!
On Sunday, June 9th the Team Evesham all-level ride was cancelled because many of us participated in the American Cancer Society’s 47th annual Bike-a-Thon from Philadelphia to Atlantic City. The weather was spectacular but 20mph head-winds on the AC causeway made for a challenging finish. Team evesham, with over 80 members participating, raised almost $25,000 for the care and prevention of cancer!
Next Sunday, June 16th is Father’s Day and there WILL be a Team Evesham ride.
HOWEVER the following Sunday, June 23rd will be the all-team Ride for Olivia and once again there will be no regular Team Evesham ride. Please consider participating.
Finally this month, on Wednesday, June 26th at 6pm please plan to ride with us for the Joe Vitale|D&Q Bike-n-Dine. This is a ride to benefit Joe and to thank him for his years of service to the biking community of Southern NJ. If you can’t make it to the ride, we are finishing up at P.J. Whelihan’s in Medford (61 Stokes Rd, Medford Lakes, NJ 08055) at 7:30pm where you are welcome to join us and wish Joe a farewell.
Always wear a helmet and practice safe riding habits!
And remember: In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you ride with…
Last Sunday, June 2nd was a big event for Team Evesham: Move for Mental Health. This was the second year for the event and it continues to be a big success. Over 200 riders participated and more than $10,000 was raised for our community. Remember this is ultimately the work of one person: Our teammate Sami Sorid (front row, green shirt above). NEVER say that one person can’t make difference. Thank you Sami! Thanks also to all of the people that helped and supported her, including her family.
REMINDER: This Sunday, June 9th, there will be no regular Team Evesham ride. Many of our riders will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s annual Bike-a-Thon. This is a wonderful ride from Philadelphia to Atlantic City and right now the weather looks great. It’s not too late to join our ACS team and ride with us! Sign up here to ride with us.
