TRI ride will be every second Sunday.  Bring out the TRI bike (or not) for a fund day in aero.

Question of the week:  Are you watching the tour?  And how do you watch the tour?  Do you avoid spoiler alerts?  Do you fast forward so that you can catch up each day?  I wish I had the free time to watch 3+ hours of racing for 21 days, but work always gets in the way.  I want to keep updated on the progress, so I read news articles in the morning, and then watch the replay as I can.  One of the good things about this approach is that I end up with about 2 months or more of premiere cycling to watch.  Just remember when going out on a group ride not to spoil it for those that are behind in the action.  
Safety Tip of the Week:  Don't drink and ride.  Riding while impaired increases your chances of not having a good ride. 

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
