We at First Wave would like to welcome TRIBE back as our exclusive multisport sponsor! To do so, we will be travelling to TRIBE for our next meeting…er, I mean Tribal Council…so we hope to have a GREAT TURNOUT to meet Glenn and Julie Allen, the owners, and to re-familiarize ourselves with TRIBE’s products and services and training events.

WHERE:  TRIBE MULTISPORT, 7624 E. Indian School, Suite 101, Scottsdale, AZ 85251
WHAT:    CLUB MEETING, TOUR OF THE STORE, DISCUSS PRODUCTS & SERVICES, PLUS
                TOPIC: WHY A GOOD BIKE FIT IS SO IMPORTANT.

TRIBE is offering First Wave members $60 off a Retul bike fit ($180, normally $240). In addition, they currently have all 2012 bikes on sale, some apparel is 40% off, and a huge selection of shoes is up to 50% off. And don’t forget TRIBE’S discount to First Wave members is a generous 17.5% on non-sale applicable items, so feel free to take advantage of it while you are there!
We will be car-pooling from the WEST SIDE (street side) of the Deer Valley AMC 30 parking lot next to the AMC building (near Loop 101 and 31st Ave) at 6:15pm, so be there by that time so we can figure out how many cars to take. Call Bruce at 602-284-1682 if you can’t find us!

Club Time Trial Challenge - Saturday, Dec 12, 2009 - Tempe

Time/Location: Meet at Landis

Cyclery at Rural and Warner in Tempe at 7am. We will sign all of the teams up and match up those who do not have a complete team. We will then leave Landis around 7:30 to do a warm up ride out to Riggs and Maricopa (347). We hope to get the first team off around 8 am.

Format: This will be a standard 4-person time trial. It can be a mix of any gender or age. The time ends with the third rider (so the fourth can get dropped if needed). The time trail will be around 10 miles in length. The TT will start from just north of Maricopa Rd. (347) on Riggs Rd. and finish on 51st ave. and Pecos (just south of the light at the Shell gas station)

After: After the time trial, we'll ride "around the mountain" back to Landis Cyclery. We will provide the results to all clubs to disseminate. Bragging rights will go to the fastest team! We may coordinate a breakfast ride from there as well. Timing: Landis Cyclery will provide the start and finish timing and will post the results at Landis Cyclery where we started.

Other: We would ask that each of you coordinate with your own clubs and forward us the names for each of your teams in advance, if you can. I would also like to know how many might be interested in eating breakfast at the Good Egg (for head count purposes) Again, the idea here is to have a fun, safe and fast ride. It is low-key on purpose. Of course, side bets are always welcome :-). If anyone has any questions, they can call or email Mike Hughes at 602-430-1043 or mike@mikehughes1.com.

Vania Black

On March 1st, while riding along the Carefree Highway in Phoenix, AZ our friend and fellow triathlete Vania Black was hit by a horse trailer. She suffered from a number of broken bones, a collapsed lung, and a subdural hematoma. She was in a coma for three weeks. Fortunately, she woke up from her coma but has suffered some brain damage. She has been in in-patient treatment at the Barrow's Neurological Institute for the some of March, the full month of April, and a little into May.

Our hope is for Vania to make a full recovery; we are trying to help her financially by holding a 5k and 1mile fun run. We are also promoting "Not One More" a non-profit foundation - . who is dedicated to ending the cyclist-vehicle accidents on the roads today."
