Time to face reality.  Due to Rain, CVC rides are cancelled for Saturday and likely for Sunday as well.  Stay indoors if you can.

Question of the week:  When is the last time you tried something different?  Whether it’s challenging yourself with a tough climb, changing your route home, or even going on a ride with someone who is not a cyclist.  Don’t get stuck in a rut.  We are blessed with many local riding options on the road and in the dirt.  Change fosters growth.  

Safety Tip of the Week:
  Be Predictable-Group riding requires even more attention to predictability than riding alone. Other riders expect you to ride straight, at a constant speed, unless you indicate differently.  Along with hand signals, verbally warn cyclists of your changes in direction or speed. The lead rider should call out “left turn,” “right turn,” “slowing,” stopping,” etc. Announce a turn well in advance of the intersection, so that members of the group have time to position themselves properly. Riding in a predictable fashion also makes it easier for cars to go around (and not into) you.

When riding with us:
·      wear helmets and ensure your bike is in good working order
·      stay in bike lanes and no more than two abreast on them; single file otherwise
·      not overlap wheels
·      descend carefully!  Look out for debris, animals, potholes, tight bends, and slick spots
·      pass slower riders on the left 
·      ride predictably: signal when changing lines and call out hazards
·      avoid bunching up 
·      respect all traffic rules and the rights of motor vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians
·   always use proper hand signals to indicate to drivers and other riders your intentions
·   we are a "rules of the road" cycling club
·     Inclement weather policy: In the interest of safety, whenever it is either actively raining 
or the ride route has wet roads, it is our club policy to cancel a club ride. 
Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions;
 however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride
