Training for Ride Leaders and Sweeps*
A training session is scheduled for May as weather allows. Additional details will be shared shortly via email and Discord.
Interested in being a ride leader or sweep? Please consider attending!
*What's a "sweep"? That's a rider who rides at the back of the group and makes sure no one gets left behind. All ride leaders appreciate having a sweep, so if you're interested in helping, please join this training session.
We're a group of friends with a mission:
To promote bicycling for transportation, recreation and better health;
To encourage and assist beginning riders, welcome new members and be a diverse and inclusive club;
To schedule club rides, hold monthly meetings and offer social events;
To connect riders of similar skills and interests;
To educate members in safe riding practices and bicycle maintenance; and
To work with the village to improve cyclists' safety.
