From NMTS members Russ and Deb Stolk
Hi, let all the NMTS cyclists be aware that Deb and I have finally returned to the Land of Enchantment and that she is doing better despite continued headache pains and vertigo. No bike riding for her for a while nor work as she has to have repeat CT scan and clearing by the MD's before increased activity. She wants me to set her bike up on the trainer in bedroom so that she can at least start on that. She is one tuff cookie that spouse of mine??!! I will try to get back to cycling with the groups hopefully soon but have to wait until she can be alone at the home for safety reasons. russ and deb

Rob Oakes Memorial Bike Rack

The New MexicoTouring Society (NMTS) is pleased to offer the opportunity to remember and memorialize William "Rob" Oakes.

Rob was an active and enthusiastic NMTS member who died tragically, in May 2013 while riding his bike during the club's annual Gila Ride.

Rob logged over 27,000 club miles since joining NMTS in 2007, and served as editor of the NMTS Freewheel from December 2011 until his death.

NMTS has established a goal of $2,000 to cover all the expenses of the memorial.

The $2,000 includes a reserve for future maintenance.

TORGV Announcement
Registration is now open for the Tour of the Rio Grande Valley (TORGV) to be held on September 14, 2014, presented by the Bicycle Coalition of New Mexico! TORGV riders will be treated to scenic, mostly flat, bike-friendly roads along the Rio Grande Valley. The Century rides pass through Los Ranchos, Albuquerque, Isleta Pueblo, Los Lunas and Belen. All rides begin and end in Los Ranchos and are SAG supported. Maps and registration information are available at: TORGV.com. If you have ever wanted to ride a Century, this is the one for you because it is the flattest Bicycle Century in New Mexico.
Suzanne Taylor's Blog on Astronomy
Many NMTS members will remember Suzanne. She lives in Gunnison and still rides with the club when she visits here.
We have ridden with her on trips to Colorado.
That she also is enthusiastic about astronomy, makes her especially interesting to some of us. Below is the link to her blog.
