Riding with the Club
We are happy that so many new members have joined our club this year!! We encourage everyone to take a few minutes to review our ride guidelines, which can be accessed by clicking on the button below. It is very important for all riders to take the time to review ride descriptions, and to honestly assess whether you have the experience and fitness to successfully participate in the ride as described. Our goal is for everyone to be safe and have fun on our rides, and this works best when everyone attends rides that are suitable for them.
If you are unsure whether a ride is appropriate for you PLEASE give the ride leader a call before the ride and he or she will be happy to advise you. It is ALWAYS better to ask in advance!
If you are brand new to cycling, please take a bit of time to learn how your bike works - how your gears shift, how your brakes work, and how to stop and start before joining a group ride. We can help you develop group riding skills, and become a better and stronger rider, but you need to have a basic understanding of how your bike works first. If you need assistance in learning the basics about your bike, contact our Rides Committee chairperson Chris Boggs at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will help connect you with a club member who can help you!
