Our bike rides are about to start and we have some new training opportunities for everyone!
This Tuesday the 15th will be our first ride of the season in Kaukauna at the Aurora Clinic...we leave the parking lot at EXACTLY 6pm...for those who have never ridden with us, we break into groups according to speed and desired distance.
No one gets dropped or left behind.  If you are a complete newbie and not sure you want to start off with our Tuesday group, we have some rides ESPECIALLY for you...in Kaukauna, on Monday May 5th and again on Monday May 12th..we will have "NEWBIE ONLY" rides....the speeds will average about 12-15mph and you will learn how to bike in a group.  We ask that everyone come prepared with the proper gear (including helmet) and that your bikes have been tuned up and tires filled!!
Then, on Tuesday, the 13th of May, we will have our official NEWBIE TUESDAY night when you will join the rest of the gang!!  Mark Conway is our Tuesday ride leader.
GREEN BAY RIDES:  We now have TRI FOX rides in Green Bay on Thursdays at 6pm...leaving from the parking lot of the Aurora Baycare Medical Center.  Eric Pless, Alicia Jones, and Brian McWilliams will be the leaders..
If you have questions, please email this address and we will direct your question to the correct person: foxtriclub@gmail.com

A TASTY WAY TO RAISE DOUGH....TO BENEFIT THE TRI FOXES!
On Tuesday June 17th, Uno's in Appleton will donate up to 20% of every check to our club!!!!!!!!  This is valid ONLY on June 17th...all day...lunch or dinner....you NEED to have a coupon...we have them at TRI FOX WORLD HEADQUARTERS at AURORA in Kaukauna, or we will have them on the website very soon and you can just print one off...we will also be handing them out at all events where TRI FOXES are known to frequent....you can give them to family, coworkers, friends, whomever!!
Go to lunch and dinner....order lots of food....you only need one coupon per table even if everyone gets a separate check, but UNO'S will honor this deal ONLY if you present a coupon...we cannot hand them out in the restaurant.  This is a very sweet way to raise dough (get it?) for the club and very generous of UNO'S..please let them know you are a TRI FOX whenever you go to the restaurant and please thank them for being a friend of the club!
