SRCC Historical Time Line

The Santa Rosa Cycling Club was founded—under another name—in the early 1960s. Unfortunately, almost all records from that earlier period in the club were lost around 1981, supposedly in a fire in someone’s garage. However, we have a brief summary of those early years preserved in a small article that appeared in a 1982 club newsletter. A later newsletter editor reprinted that copy in another newsletter sometime in the 1990s, and you can read that article here.

What follows here are brief thumbnails of club life for each year since 1982. The earliest newsletters were very sketchy about actual details of club activity. Lots of anecdotes but not a lot of facts. As the years go by, more and more details were recorded in the newsletters and could be extracted and placed in this chronology.
