Five LBC members have been elected to serve on the Board of Directors beginning in 2019.
- Rich Cornell
- Jim MacMurray
- Maribeth Orr
- Kathryn Schartz
- Craig Weinaug
For 2019, officers will be selected from the elected board so that all officers will be voting board members.
Congratulations to our new board members, and thank you to everyone who was willing to run.
Congratulations also go to Susan Twombly, recipient of the 2018 Lone Star Award. Susan’s numerous contributions include serving on the board for three terms, directing Lizard Under the Skillet, and leading the LBC beginners ride for several years.
Finally, special thanks to Andrew Shoemaker, who is stepping down after three years as LBC president.
Information about past board members and officers is available in the Resources section of the LBC website
Come ride with LBC in 2019!
Mark your calendars for the 2018 Tour de Chicken Creek gravel grinder on Sunday, November 4, leaving from Lawrence Riverfront Park. This will be a 40-mile fully supported gravel ride with a 20-mile option. We like to call this the “gravel ride for the rest of us.” If you aren’t up to a 100-mile gravel grinder or a 200-mile DK, this is your ride. There will be food, water and toilet facilities on route. Cost is $5 at the time of registration. Registration will start at 7:30 a.m. with the ride start at 8:30 a.m. This is the first day of Central Standard Time so don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour. If you ever wanted to see what dirt road riding is all about, this is your ride!
Ride with GPS routes available for the full route or the short route.
Registration is now available for Octoginta 2018. More info about the weekend’s events at the Octoginta page.
This is the 49th Octoginta. How many have you ridden?
The Primal team store for new LBC kit is now open!
Men’s and women’s sport jerseys $55

October 6 – 7, 2018 – Octoginta
November 4, 2018 – Tour de Chicken Creek
Come ride with us in 2018!
Join the Lawrence Bicycle Club on Sunday, November 5, for our annual Tour de Chicken Creek gravel grinder.
Start time: 8:30 a.m. Please note that daylight savings ends on that day.
Start Location: Lawrence Riverfront Park, west of the Tee Pee junction, which is the intersection of 59 and 24/40 highways (E1450 and N1800) in North Lawrence. To get to the park, go west over the levee and down toward the river. (Note: Google maps for ‘Riverfront Park’ will NOT get you to the right place.)
Length: 21 and 40 mile options
Registration: $5 cash or check day-of registration only
The route will be similar to the 2016 route. The ride no longer follows the Chicken Creek south of town but we’ve kept the name in honor of some past epic rides.
There will be one SAG with snacks and water. The roads are hard-packed, with rolling hills and limited motor traffic.
Come ride with us on November 5!
What a day! Great weather, good roads, tasty food, and friends to ride with.
Check out the day’s activities in photos at Mike Yoder’s website. Thanks to Mike for the excellent photos.
Come ride with us again next year!
Route maps are now available for Octoginta 2017.
Cue sheets also available.
