4. Rockland County Century
We have a preliminary route for a metric and imperial all-in-Rockland Century on September 23. It's an interesting tour of hilly Rockland. For those of you who are still looking for a 2018 riding goal, this is it. Making the event happen is a big undertaking and we need your help! We are looking for volunteers to help us promote and execute the Tour de Rockland! Email rocklandbike@gmail.com. if you can help make this happen!
5. Help Wanted! 
We need riders...and writers, too! If you are interested in being a ride leader, helping to publish our monthly Braking Newsnewsletter or being part of a team that will introduce a new look to the RocklandBike.org website, email RocklandBike@gmail.org.
