******************************************

General Ride Information

Type your paragraph here.

- Riders must correctly wear an approved helmet, have a bicycle in good mechanical condition and follow sound rules 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.

- 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).  Sunday rides are the ride leaders choice, and can be longer and more aggressive. 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.  The club has recently formed a new group for those interested in more  aggressive rides, (13 - 16 mph average depending on hills and around 35 to 45 miles)  These rides are not posted.  Members communicate by group email.  For those interested in riding with this group, contact spfldcyclonauts@gmail.com to be added to the email list.  

- 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.

 We welcome non-club members, but non-club members must sign a "Release Form".

Rain or bad weather cancels. (if the roads look like they are drying, we usually ride) Check with the ride leader if in doubt.
