PHOTO OF THE MONTH
Walden Underwear
Since not everyone could join Sarah Keller in Hawaii, a few BTT'ers decided to show their support by doing their own version of the underwear run at Walden Pond.

FEATURED SPONSOR
Cyfac
www.veloeuropa.com

We are pleased to introduce you to our newest Team Supporter Cyfac / Velo Europa. Although new to the U.S., Cyfac is certainly not new to cycling. For years, they have been building frames for many top pros and amateurs in Europe and are now offering BTT members a 15% discount off their MSRP when purchasing frames from International Bicycle Center in Allston. Frame prices are around $1000 and Cyfac builds their framesets in aluminum, carbon, titanium, steel and combinations of aluminum/carbon. For more information, contact Steve Upson at upson@hotmail.com

    Porter Square Rides Cap Another Successful Season
    After many mornings and many miles of riding, the weather has gone cold, dark and rainy, the riders have gone...lazy.  Thanks to all for coming out for another successful season of riding.  The regular cadence may cease now, but the riding can continue!  Those interested in riding should contact the group and confirm departure times.  Look out for weekend rides as well.  Contact Josh if you have questions or comments.  See you in the spring for the regular weekly cycling.
