Andres Titibocchi has been an outstanding Rides Captain for three years, managing ride leader points, creating a voting system to select the ride leader jersey, writing enlightening Masterlink articles, responding to complaints (yes, he received a few), and handling way too many accident claims. We are going to miss Andres and his wonderful wit and smile, but I hope he will be around for a while longer before returning to Uruguay.

Keith Schlanger will replace Andres. I met with Keith over salads at Panera Grill, and I am confident he is the right person for the job. Keith is an experienced ride leader, with 35 ride leader points so far this year, and is knowledgeable about our club rides and policies. He has already identified several areas for improvement. Keith volunteered for this position, and his enthusiasm is catchy.
