Dear Family, Friends, zMotion & Bicycling Enthusiasts, Triathletes, Volunteers and Potential Cyclists,
As we pedal through the 2016 season, please join me in excitement as we introduce some new changes into our organization!
In an effort to foster unity and inclusiveness, it is with great excitement that I announce changes within our club. zMotion and Tri zMotion have now been merged together, under the zMotion “umbrella.” What does this mean for you? Now, all members receive the full benefits of both clubs. Members will receive discounts and comp-entries into charity cycling events, discounts for triathlons, swim and run events, members’ only socials, training camps and discounts to local bike shops. The membership price will stay the same- $49/year. If you are a member of both clubs your membership will be extended through the date of your newest membership.
zMotion’s 2016-2017 calendar brings many exciting ride events. Our calendar includes exciting new charity events and classic favorites, quarterly members only socials, zMotion merchandise, and exclusive club discounts!
We want passionate volunteers, and avid cyclists, triathletes and community members, dedicated to truly making our community a better place to live, work and play. Throughout the year we will be encouraging additional fundraising for the local charities named and would welcome any and all suggestions for ways to support these charities. Additionally we are forming a Volunteer Committee to help strengthen our efforts. If you are interested in being a part of this task force, please let us know.
zMotion was developed in an effort to become such a gigantic force within the community so that our collective voice would be heard. Being a part of zMotion is not just about cycling, enjoying great people, and living a more fulfilling lifestyle; it’s about our philanthropic and advocacy work. zMotion has built a strong reputation as the club that contributes to foundations such as: Ride 4 Orphans, Kids in Distress, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Mystic Force Foundation, SBW’s Adopt-A-Bike, and Help Our Military Heroes just to name a few. At the zMotion Foundation, it's about giving more than we receive and challenging ourselves to make a bigger difference in our own lives, the lives of others and to never stop riding for a better tomorrow. We take that challenge very seriously every day and are always looking for ways to come together for the greater good. Join us!
For those of you who are new to zMotion, our advocacy work, or even just cycling, we invite you to join us at an event or training camp for a test drive. We welcome everyone and are confident that you will have a rewarding experience that inspires you to join with an active membership!
I’m proud to be the Executive Director of the zMotion Foundation. I’m proud of our past accomplishments, our great current members, our incredible training opportunities, and most importantly, I’m proud to offer you an irresistible value in 2017. On behalf of the entire zMotion Foundation Team, I promise that, together, 2017 is the year of growth. This is the year we show strength in the community, strength in cycling, and strength in our efforts to rally together in a way the cycling community has never experienced before. Join us in this movement. Join us in our efforts. Join us on your bicycle. Let’s celebrate life and all that has been afforded to us and LET'S RIDE for a better tomorrow!
See you on the road,
Chris Hoch, Executive Director
The zMotion Foundation
