Courtney Hollow Band will be playing for our first Music on the Lawn on June 14, 2012 at 6:30 pm. Bring your lawn chairs and/or blankets and join us for free music on the Madison County Library Lawn on North Main Street in the Town of Madison, Virginia.
The winter was long and snowy, but spring is now here and everyone is ready to get out and enjoy the green grass, flowers, and sunshine. I have already seen bikers on the roads and folks getting ready to ride in all sorts of activities.
We are gearing up for the Tour de Madison bike ride as well. Flyers will be going out this week and websites have been posted.
If you have any questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 540-948-2272. We’ll see you on May 15 at the Madison Fire Hall.

Greetings to our Cyclist friends:
I thought you all would be interested in the results of our 2009 Tour de Madison bike ride. I would also like to address some changes which will be made next year.
We will improve on making all announcements so that everyone can hear them. I know some folks were outside when the announcements were being made and were not able to hear.
There was confusion concerning the start time this year, and we will be sure that does not happen in the future. We have had a number of requests that we start earlier, and next year we will be starting the ride at 8:30 a.m. We will be sure to start everyone in the traditional mass start.
We will look into having more rest stops on the routes. This year the 3 loops back to the firehouse were about the same distance to a rest stop in years past.
We had four safety crews on the road this year, and the last crew stopped at 2:30 pm. Next year we will have a few cell phones numbers available on the map to use if a rider needs assistance.
Our routes were listed by distance, not by difficulty or time factors. This year the short route had more elevation that most people realized. Next year we will be sure to give a brief description of each ride, and we will suggest the best route for novice riders.
I would greatly appreciate hearing from you if you have any suggestions of how we can further improve the Tour de Madison. We look forward to having you with us next year!
