SABA End of the Year Summary – 2021

SABA End of the Year Summary 2021

In spite of Covid, SABA has accomplished several club objectives, including: 

  • Murphy Learning Center Nature Trail:  club members helped build a nature trail and contributed a cash donation
  • Group Road Rides resumed on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays (currently suspended until spring). 
  • Group Mountain Bike rides resumed at Jackrabbit Trail System on Wednesday evenings (currently suspended until spring).
  • Group Gravel Rides are new this year for the Club – rides announced on SABA Facebook
  • Rails to Trails (Murphy to Andrews):  SABA is now a Sponsor
  • League of American Bicyclists (LAB):  SABA joined LAB which includes over 1,200 clubs across the USA advocating for bike lanes and safer streets. Through the membership SABA now has better insurance coverage at a lower rate which enabled us to reduce our membership fees.
  • Jackrabbit Trail System Expansion:  the trail was expanded 5 miles rated as advanced / expert.
  • Piney Knob Trail System Expansion:  PK is now 13 miles with the recent expansion.
  • Piney Knob Trail System Recognition: PK was 1 of only 10 trail systems in the country in 2021 to receive a National Recreation Trail designation from the Federal Dept of the Interior.
  • SABA Sponsorship Program:  The Club initiated a Sponsorship program. We now have 7 sponsors
  • Murphy Shop with a Cop:  SABA supported the Shop with a Cop program – we purchased 3 kids bikes and made a cash donation.  We plan to continue this program annually, rotating from city to city.
  • Share the Road: To raise awareness within the community of cyclists, the club distributed “Share the Road” stickers to club members and participants of the group road bike rides.
  • SABA Membership:  we currently have 75 members!  

Happy Holidays and Safe Cycling!!!!!!
