Question of the week: Is it really too cold in Ca? In light of my cold weather complaining, I had to share what I witnessed in N.Y. this week. Several cyclists riding in the snow. Some fat tire, some regular road bikes, all bad a**. Even though it may be just another day at work for him, it was impressive. If they can handle 32 degrees and ice, I guess I can handle 50 degree weather. See you out there.
Safety Tip of the Week: See and Be Seen-Whether daytime, dawn, dusk, foul weather, or at night, you need to be seen by others. Wearing white has not been shown to make you more visible. Rather, always wear neon, fluorescent, or other bright colors when riding day or night. Also wear something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, or flashing lights. Remember, just because you can see a driver doesn’t mean the driver can see you. Make eye contact with other road users, especially at junctions, then you know they’ve seen 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
