Question of the week: How is Bart Ziegler doing? Our away ride this week was designed by Bart in 2017. I like it, because I’ll ride from home, get some climbing in, enjoy the lovely beach view, with a relaxing lunch in the middle. It’s also super flat which has B’s name all over it. Drop him an email if you haven’t heard from him in a while, I'm sure he’d love to talk Kom’s.
Safety Tip of the Week: Watch Out at Intersections-When approaching intersections requiring vehicles to yield or stop the lead rider will say “slowing” or “stopping” to alert those behind to the change in speed. Do not call out “clear”. Each cyclist is responsible for verifying that the way is clear before entering the intersection. Signal well and make eye contact with drivers before making a turn or slowing down.
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
