In 2012 then Club President Mindy Steiner initiated the Special Awards at the annual Holiday Party. This category recognizes club members for other than service to the club (Appreciation Awards) or to the larger cycling community (Lefkowitz Award). The reason for the award may differ from year-to-year and/or recipient-to-recipient. She hoped it was the start of a new tradition.
Mindy called the inaugural category the President’s Hero award. The 2 members honored were…
- Jani Richards—for her perseverance and successful solo completion of the Cazadero LDT ride, which was the longest and most difficult ride which she, a B rider, had ever attempted
- Midori—for her meteoric one year rise from a beginner rider to a competent C rider, a 100-mile Sequoia finisher, and a B-ride leader.
The award was for ??? and went to Andy Kirk.
