Weekly Group Rides

WINTER RIDE SCHEDULE 2022 

Weather:  Generally we don’t ride if temp is 40F at start.  Weather can force last minute changes, get these updates when you join the club on our email list – groups.io.
Lights: Please bring lights, front and rear.  Night rides need front and back lights, make sure the rear are toned down.

Additional Covid-19 rules we are currently following:

1.  Do not attend a group ride if you are not feeling well or if you have a fever.
2.  Open nose-blowing is not permitted on group rides.  Use tissues or a bandanna.
3.  Don’t ride if you know you have COVID-19 and you are under recommended CDC guidelines
We review and make changes as needed regarding Covid-19.

The Club’s supplemental accident medical insurance covers members in good standing on all Club rides.

Safety Requirements for all rides:
1.      Minimum Riders: 2 or more…may be required, see postings.
2.      ID – In Case of Emergency contact – required on you/bike (not on your mobile phone). Many different options just have one.
3.      Helmets required (glasses recommended)
4.      Rear Daytime Blinker Lights:  REQUIRED – BE SEEN.  A “Daytime” Blinker hurts your eyes if you look directly at it from arms length.  Make sure that your light is charged.  Lights need to point directly back (not to the ground or to the sky).  Set brightness down on the night rides.
5.      HeadlightsHighly recommend.  Be seen by oncoming cars and drivers turning.  And needed on our night rides.
6.      No Earbuds – to hear cars and fellow riders.
7.      Obey Safe Cycling Practice
8.      Do Not engage / respond / react to angry motorists.  Document – video / pictures / write to tell authorities if needed.
9.      Be Open to Safety Feedback – we need to watch out for each other.  The Ride Leader cannot see everything and can need feedback too.
10.  Ride Leader Mobile:  xxx-xxx-xxxx.
