BOISE, Idaho (February 5, 2020) — The Southwestern Idaho Cycling Association (SWICA), which serves as the USA Cycling Local Association for the region, has announced that it will be holding a meeting to elect new members to the Board.
The meeting will be held at Bob’s Bicycles, 6681 W Fairview Ave, Boise, ID 83704 at 6:00 pm on Monday, February 10, 2020.
According to an email sent by John Rogers to the SWICA mailing list:
“For many years SWICA has been run by one or two individuals with little help from others. There is only so much one unpaid person can do before he must ask, “Can’t someone else help?” A big part of keeping competitive cycling healthy in Idaho, is being involved in that community. I know life is busy and we dedicate a lot of time to training to be physically fit for races. Sometimes we forget that it takes planning and lots of behind the scenes stuff to make race day happen. The more hands we have pitching in to help, the better job we can all do to help the sport of cycling grow.”
If the meeting and election do not generate enough interest from the bicycle racing public in Southwest Idaho, it is likely that moves will be taken to fold SWICA and shift governance over the region back to USA Cycling, rather than continuing to be administered locally.
