Night Rides  

We had a great response to our  Facebook question about night rides.  Now we need ride leaders/coordinators. 

  • The ride leader will be responsible for the coordination of the sign in sheet and to make sure everyone is off the trail. If the ride breaks into two( fast and slow), he/she will need to coordinate the groups so that everyone is out. 

Most rides will pedal off at 6pm and be done around 7:30. At Freedom Park, all riders must be off trail by 7:30 and out of Park by 8 when the rangers lock the gate.

The ride leader will also make the call for cancellation due to inclement weather. Facebook events can be used to coordinate.

If you are willing to volunteer, please post up or email Jim Irby.

Without volunteers, these rides will not happen

Kudos! We had a very productive work day at the park working with the Friends of IR. Several bridges repaired and trails cleared.  Excellent meeting the Friends group to coordinate activity at the park. A big thank you to Tim Stephens for volunteering to be trail captain.  Let's keep up the good work.

Club Elections

It is that time of year again for club elections. If you are interested, the club needs volunteers. Most of the Board said they would continue for now but all positions are open. The club definitely could use volunteers organizing group rides, club meetings, social events, trail captains, and camping trips. Without volunteers, these things will not happen.

Enjoy the Fall weather, and have a great weekend!.
