Big Bear, Ca, January 16, 2011, 5:00pm –The Big Bear Cycling Association had a busy year in 2011, and is looking to make 2012 even busier.  Last year the then newly formed Big Bear Cycling Association was able to provide a full summer ride schedule of 14 rides a week, with timed training rides, and put on the Tour de Big Bear with 600 riders.  The association also introduced the “Lids for Kids” program, with a goal of having helmets for all children 12 and under.  So far 65 helmets were purchased and distributed.  The cycling association, with help from various community members was able to put on educational seminars about health, nutrition and cycling to over 200 people.  In 2012, the group is looking to expand their programs, and launch a few new ones, and they are looking for volunteers to help grow the organization.  The group is looking for volunteers and members of the association to sit on various committees.  For more information, go to or contact Craig at 866-8467.
