Greetings all Vozzers! Welcome to 2016! This is the start of a phenomenally exciting year for the VOZ community and the cycling world as a whole! To start, the VOZ website will be getting energized with a new look and upgraded features, including a new user profile interface and a new forum interface to make it easier for community members to share and seek information related to cycling and healthy living. Also, membership will be opened up to vendors, mechanics, and other related services, making it easier for Vozzers to find the services they need and share their experiences.
Be sure to watch the events page for upcoming rides and keep tracking your ride data on STRAVA. This year, VOZ will be recognizing your devotion and helping you set the pace for the community by issuing badge icons for your profile page based on your cycling achievements:
So keep spinning and motivate your fellow community members by racking up badges!
Watch for a new classified ad section where members can list products and services to sell and trade among VOZ community members. Got equipment laying around that you no longer use but is still in good shape? Upgrading to a new bike and no longer have room for the old one? Are you a mechanic, coach, or trainer wanting to make your services available to other community members? VOZ wants to make it easy to find each other and network.
Coming this year will also be a community store selling VOZ merchandise, making it easier for members to show their pride in the community and promote healthy living. In the meantime, we have new members in need of jerseys and established members with jerseys in need of replacement. Gather your ordering information and watch for a forthcoming announcement on participating in a group order from our vendor.
If you took a break during the holidays, then it’s time to think about getting that bike tuned up and preparing for those beautiful spring rides. Get everyone you know involved and encourage them to join our community, not just to promote cycling but to promote healthy, active lifestyles. VOZ is your place for cycling, friendship, and health in 2016!
