The Mad Hatter's Tea Party Madness (or why we ride March Madness)

Recently, we all have had to learn to make do with less. In prescient fashion, our Davis Bike Club anticipated this trend toward frugality in all things. Out of a desire to husband our resources March Madness was born.

First Aid Kits To Get a Makeover

Last year before the Davis Double I was thinking about the first aid kits that I had used several times during different events. I was thinking about the rust in the steel toolboxes and the trays that were all battered and worn. My thoughts recalled several supplies that were crushed in the bottom stained with Betadine and in disarray. I hesitated to ask if we could possibly update the first aid boxes because I knew that I would probably be doing it myself since I had the idea. I asked anyway and was given the opportunity to completely update the boxes.
