Hello CMBC Community,
I'm Colin and I would like to introduce myself as the new President of CMBC, elected as of the AGM on Nov 04, 2020.
I want to thank Sammy Salter (and all those before her) for all of her hard work during the past 3 years. The club wouldn't be where it is today without her efforts.
I would also like to welcome many new faces that were elected onto the board. These folks are excited and energetic to take on important projects that we have planned for the 2020/2021 season.
My vision for CMBC moving forward is to engage more people to get on our bikes and to enjoy riding. We have such a diverse group of people and disciplines of biking here in the Yukon that my hope is to share what CMBC does, can do, and has done, with as many of them as I can. I challenge you all; young and old, cheechakos and sourdoughs, experienced and inexperienced to the fun of biking, to engage with us and others in the community in 2021 and share our extremely fortunate biking culture with others.
This year has looked a little different for everyone and especially for the biking community, although we could not hold many of our annual events, I'm pretty confident that I saw more bikes on the trails this year, compared to last year. During the COVID pause and while nobody is travelling, we have unprecedented time to kick back and discuss a lot of biking related things. What better way to engage with each other safely than to get outside, discuss and share something that we commonly love!?
Coming up we will have many opportunities to (safely) hang out, meet and greet, work on community projects together, involve new people and re-involve old people. I think CMBC is going to put on some good stuff this year and I encourage your ideas, help and energy.
If you would like to get involved and see where your skills can be put to good use, let us know. There are a lot of unique ways you can give back to your community and engaging with your local biking club is one of them!
I'm looking forward to my new challenges and forthcoming successes.
This is me. If you see me out and about, stop me and say "Hi, you're that guy". I'll say "Hi" back and we can chat about biking. I genuinely can't wait to meet you all.
Thank you for your support moving forward. See you on the trails, - CM
