- Riders must correctly wear an approved helmet, have a bicycle in good mechanical condition and follow soundrules of safety. Remember, your conduct as an individual reflects that of the entire club. Bring fluids and snacks according to your needs. Protect yourself with sun screen.
- Rain or bad weather cancels. (if the roads look like they are drying, we usually ride) Check with the ride leader if in doubt.
- Note: Rides leave promptly at the time listed in the schedules. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to get ready to depart.
- The Wednesday and Saturday Traditional rides are leisurely (10 - 13 mph average, 25 - 30 miles). Saturday Alternate rides are faster paced (13 - 16 mph average) and longer (35 - 45 miles). Sunday rides are the ride leaders choice, and can be aggressive or leisurely. Rail Trail Rides are generally about 20 miles in length at a leisurely pace, and are confined to area rail trails. These rides are popular with cyclists who are not comfortable riding on the road.
- Ride leaders may choose to schedule a pre-ride breakfast which is optional for all riders. Restaurant stops are at the option of the leader, but should be included in the ride description. All rides should include a rest/snack stop.
