Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club
15th ANNUAL PEDALING PATHS BIKE RIDE IS
"IN THE HISTORY BOOKS" 
WHAT A GREAT EVENT!  
Pedaling Paths is more than just something we help out with.  Your Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club is the hosting sponsor of this event. Saturday's weather was some of the best I've experienced in the 15 years of the ride.  

Huge compliment came from riders. The Pedaling Path Committee club members who worked really hard getting the event ready really scored a win! We had almost 200 riders this year! 

Thanks especially to Annie N6ACL, Joyce K6QBQ, Mark W6SXA and Joni KN6WVX who have been the driving force for the ride this year. 

Now that the ride is over but the smile is still bright, we will be working on how much did we raise to support activities for The Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired ( www.ccvbi.org ) There were lots of ride day sign-ups we have to factor into the totals. Cost of providing meals, hydration and snacks along the route have to be finalized as well. 

We used our “Central Dispatch” phone number of 209-227-0724 (227- 0SAG) Each rider will be given this number to call directly to the Net Control Station in the event of an emergency or break down. Using APRS in each of the SAG Wagons, Net Control will be able to track the locations of SAGs and ‘dispatch’ the closest SAG Wagon to the reported break-down or other incident. We had several call-ins. Thankfully, all but 2 were mechanical breakdowns and injuries on the ride were very minor. 

After the ride, riders and volunteers can share a delicious meal provided by DeVinci’s Deli in Linden and served by students from Linden High School (along with Shane K5SML) 

A great time was had by all!  Even Joni KN6WVX checked in from on her bike as "Rover One" proving again that "everything cool happens with radio"
