Looking for a bike for a friend.

I've got a friend at work who's become very interested in cycling. He's getting married in a few months (overseas wedding) and with travel and wedding expenses doesn't have a lot of spare cash. I had a nice Raleigh lined up for him but it's too tall. He needs something like a 51 to 53cm bike. Does anyone have one for sale that might fit the bill? If so, let me know.
Thanks

A couple of years ago I picked up a Kent tandem bicycle for my wife and I to ride. This Spring we finally got out on it together and found that we loved it. We loved it so much that we upgraded to one that is lighter and has more upgrade options available for it. Anyway, the original one is up on Craigslist for sale but low end tandems aren't in high demand so we're willing to donate it to any group that might be able to put it to good use. Boys and girls club, VA, etc... If you know of any groups like this that could make good used of it, please let me know and I'll get in touch with them and we'll make it happen.
I can be reached at jbaker1963 AT bakerjw.org or by phone 423-202-1033
Thanks
John Baker

Ride safe all.

Pack Ride and Thursday Night Ride (TNR)

We actually have liability insurance now which protects both the club and its members, so now we can actually have club rides!! (OK, most people thought these were already TCRC rides, but we did not promote them for liability reasons.) So, here’s the schedule for the TCRC Pack Ride and TNR:

The Tuesday Pack Ride starts at Lamar School (at the end of Cherokee Road) at 6 PM, and is typically a handicapped ride, with small groups starting from slower to faster with gaps in between. Besides parking at Lamar, some informal groups start from some other places and ride at a more leisurely pace to Lamar. From the ETSU parking lot behind Knights Pizza, a group typically leaves around 5:15 to 5:20. From Willow Springs Park, some join in with the ETSU group around 5:30. From the Jonesborough Visitor’s Center, a group typically leaves around 5:30.

The TNR starts from the ETSU parking lot behind Knights Pizza. This year we are attempting to have 3 rides with varying paces and distances, and they should all finish somewhere around the same time. The routes should be painted with different colors for each route soon. The goal is to keep each group together at least until the climb up Buffalo, which also means riders need to select a group with the appropriate pace/distance for their ability.
5:30 – Long route, 37 miles, 19+ mph. This route will take a right of off Hwy 81 onto Mayberry Road, but instead of taking the left on Archer for the traditional route (on the alpaca loop – no, they are not llamas), it will stay on Mayberry and cut over to the Pack Ride course to do a loop backwards before rejoining the traditional TNR route.
5:45 – Short route, 27 miles, 14-16 mph. This route will go straight on Hwy 81 instead of taking the right onto Mayberry. Although the distance is not much shorter than the normal TNR route, it does cut out a fair amount of climbing.
6:00 – Normal route, 28 miles, 17-19 mph. This is the traditional TNR route with the right off of Hwy 81 onto Mayberry for the misnamed llama loop.
