Question of the week: Is it important to look left? I always look to the right down the road, but sometimes forget to look left. This morning I dropped my chain and had to pull over to put it back on. Before I started pedaling, I gave a quick glance forward, and then off I went. A moment later I realized that I had not even looked back to the left/behind me to see if there was another cyclist or car coming in my direction. Luckily for me the road was open, but it gave me a fright thinking about what “could have been”. Left, right, then left again.
Safety Tip of the Week: Two at The End-For safety and as a courtesy, if the group spreads out, the last two people should adjust their speed to ride as a pair. If either should need assistance, they will have a helping hand.
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
