Question of the week: How fast should I go downhill?  Slower than you are comfortable with.  Maybe it’s because I’m not a great descender, but I don’t chase PR’s downhill.  A lot of our canyons have blind turns where you cannot see if there is sand on the road, a slow-moving car, or a loose table saw blocking the road.  Descend with caution.    

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
