Cyclonauts Notice: "Solo Ride" Cue Sheets, May 18, 2020
Dear Cyclonauts Members,
Not being able to do club rides does not mean that members cannot ride. Due to the circumstances that we are all faced with, and as the weather turns good for getting outdoors, we should all be riding - safely. For the time being that means riding solo or with a partner that you feel safe with. But one of the joys of club riding is going to new places that we would never find on our own. So to allow solo riders to find new routes to ride we have added a new page to the www.cyclonauts.com website called “Solo Rides” which allows members to print ride cue sheets of favorite club rides offered by other members.
To add your favorite ride cue sheets to the website just save it as a .pdf document and e-mail it to me at email@example.com. If the ride normally starts from your home you might want to modify the cue sheet to start from another more public location. When sending please provide a short description with your name, route mileage and start location (the town is OK). See the website for an example of what is needed.
And when we get back to normal and start club rides again, I promise to delete the “Solo Ride” web page so that member’s ride cue sheets can’t be stolen. [🚴]
New Cyclonauts gear page is added to help you order club jerseys and T's. For information and orders please contact Liz Sturgen at LSturgen@aol.com.
Some members rely on the printed schedules and information. To facilitate printing .pdf files of schedules can be accessed from dedicated print buttons on each schedule page. Please be aware that the printed information is not updated as rides are changed, added or cancelled at a latter date. It is recommended that members refer to the website for up-to-date information. Last minute changes are generally e-mailed to members but this is not always the case.

Notes from the Webmaster:
- I am happy to e-mail notices to club members about ride or hike changes. Simply send your notice to me, exactly as you want it to be sent to members, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will transmit it at my earliest opportunity. Please do not expect me to create or edit your notice since I don't know what you are trying to say.
- A mobile friendly version of the website can be accessed from your smartphone. This is a convenient way to carry an up-to-date schedule or photo gallery around in your pocket. You can access the website on your phone through your web browser, the same way that you do on your computer (ie type www.cyclonauts.com into the browser address bar). Navigation to schedules, club photos, etc. is through the navigation bars at the upper left of the website screen.
Hint - you can add a cyclonaut.com icon to your home screen by opening the menu bar at the bottom of the website screen and selecting "add to home screen" (iOS devices). Then just tapping on the icon will bring up the website. Be aware that accessing the website when not on wifi might incur cell provider data charges.
