Question of the week: Are you watching the tour? And how do you watch the tour? Do you avoid spoiler alerts? Do you fast forward so that you can catch up each day? I wish I had the free time to watch 3+ hours of racing for 21 days, but work always gets in the way. I want to keep updated on the progress, so I read news articles in the morning, and then watch the replay as I can. One of the good things about this approach is that I end up with about 2 months or more of premiere cycling to watch. Just remember when going out on a group ride not to spoil it for those that are behind in the action.
Safety Tip of the Week: Don't drink and ride. Riding while impaired increases your chances of not having a good ride.
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
