This group is for beginner/slower cyclists or those who just want to socialize on casual paced rides. If you're not sure you can keep up with riders in some of the other cycling groups (or if you just aren't feeling it that day) this is a group for you.
7/17/20: Group owner (Jillian) is off the bike for the time being, due to an injury. Luckily, we have a super-nice group of people and Jon is going to organize rides as his schedule allows. Jillian will probably show up to some ride starts to say hello and get some walking in while the group is riding.
Things to know:
Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Each group member is responsible for their own safety and equipment maintenance. There is always a risk of personal injury (or worse) when bicycling. By joining us, you are assuming that risk.
Unless otherwise stated in an event posting, the ride host does not leave the slowest rider. The rest of the group should feel free to go at their desired pace.
Be polite to each other, to the others we encounter, and obey traffic rules.
Ride ideas are always welcomed. I tend to stick with what I know and would like to venture out a bit more.
Punctuality is appreciated when it comes to starting a ride. Generally there is a 5 minute grace period for late-shows, but ride host has the option to wait longer if they want. If ride host is late you can either wait or head out as you please.
If you RSVP and can't make it, please update your RSVP before the event. If we end up needing to cull membership in the future (not an issue at the moment), repeated no-shows who don't do so, and people who have never showed up to anything might be removed if I need to get membership below a certain number.
