CVC RIDE PREVIEW December 12-December 18
Please remember when parking at The Landing for any weekend morning rides to park and congregate towards the far end of the lot away from the street and use the middle row. Do not park next to the homes.
Hey, you ok?....... .....Instead of riding by asking if a cyclist with a mechanical has everything, maybe stop for a few minutes and lend a hand, or at least some company. It's always easier catching back up with a few friendly wheels to share the load with.

All rides not asterisked are considered a "drop ride" so please understand the route before you start (and how to get back). If you get to a regrouping spot and no one is there, consider yourself dropped. As always we will try to stick together & have a fun safe ride. We will regroup regularly to allow everyone a chance to ride together.
If for any reason you leave a group ride, please pass along the information to the ride leader.
It is mandatory to have & wear a helmet. It is the rider's responsibility to ensure that the helmet is in good condition (check expiration on helmet inner tag) and that your bike is in working condition as well.
That’s all for now, folks. Have a great week!
