Getting it done.

It's been at least three years that Athletic Director Bob Gillespie, President David Joyce and I have been kicking around the idea of forming a bike team at Ripon. Now, the vision is becoming a reality. Following a unanimous vote by the faculty in support of the program, Ripon is set to compete in the 2008 Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference mountain bike season.

Now comes the hard work of recruiting a cast of talented cyclists to field a competitive team. In the last week, I have received a fair amount of interest from current Ripon students who want to participate. I've also received inquiries from prospective students and offers of assistance from bike shops and other coaches.

Helping to get the word out was this post on the VeloNews Web site.
