Wednesday April 9th ride, 6pm

Posted by: SpeedRiverCC on Apr 8, 2014 at 6:10 PM

The first Wednesday ride of the year. We'll do a short and simple loop, as we still don't have a ton of sunlight. Feel free to bring front/back lights just in case. Note the 6pm start time.


Please be sure to look over the Group Ride Information, especially the section on how we rotate. Also please bring your club membership card. We are meeting at the Guelph Public Library on Starwood Drive, the new start location for all club rides.


Added, from Jim:


New-to-the-club riders and anyone wanting a refresher should arrive at least 30 minutes early (5:30) for Pack Riding 101. An instructor will take you through bike and personal safety, pack riding skills and responsibilities, introduce the new Social Paceline system, and more. We will do some drills along the route, and join the ride after it arrives.

  2. Great ride tonight. Thanks to everyone who came out (all 13 of you) and a big welcome to all the new members. Great work on the new social pace line too!.

  3. Excellent start to the Wednesdays rides. Eleven riders, four of them new to the club. No sweat whatsoever with the paceline, though "some people" occasionally hogged the front for too long.
    Steer any new-to-the-club riders or folks wanting a "Try-a-Ride" to a Wednesday ride. Good way to meet people and get familiar with the club atmosphere, ride etiquette and safety rules.
    The Pack Riding 101 class will run until the end of June, every Wednesday, starting a half-hour before ride start time.
