Stephen “Rocket Man” Spiller of the Montclair Bikery Colavita Development Team took the field sprint and the Cat. 3 win at the Lower Providence Spring Classic in Pennsylvania. Stephen, a high school senior who is not yet 18, has been honing his sprint on the Valley Preferred Cycling Center’s Velodrome for some years. It was a hard fought battle but the Category 3 field was no match for Stephens signature rocket finish.

The Montclair Bikery’s second annual ‘Turkey Ride” netted over 250 frozen turkeys to benefit The Human Needs Pantry of Montclair. The 20 mile route included a stop at the Brookdale ShopRite in Bloomfield where cyclists could purchase a 10 to 14 pound turkey and donate it to the Pantry. ShopRite generously discount the turkeys by 10% for all Turkey Riders. About 150 cyclists participated in the ride and many purchased two or more birds for the cause.
