Hello All

We hope you've had a healthy and happy summer (and still are)!

This is just a short note to let you know we are eager to start the 28th Adventurides session this fall and our first ride will be on

Friday, September 8.

We'll continue to use the most recent format:

Mondays: morning fitness and afternoon recreation

Wednesdays: morning recreation and afternoon fitness

Fridays: Leader's choice

We'll be in touch with the details for the 8th and the following week.

In the meantime, please make sure your helmet is in good condition, dust off your bike, maybe clean and oil your chain, check your brakes and get your pump ready.

Attached please find the Waiver. If you want, you can initial the first page and sign the second page, scan it and e-mail it back or bring it with you on your first ride.

The fee will be $10.

If you're not a member of the Adventurides Club on ridewithgps.com and you'd like to be, let us know.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 8th,


Bill and Joel





Spring 2017

We want to thank our riders for keeping Adventurides the great biking club that it is and for a fun and safe season.

We are no longer available to lead this month and so the official Spring 2017 has come to a close.  

Overall, 23 riders participated and we had 33 rides.  There were NO flat tires and only one fall that I know of (me) which was due to one of three similar chain problems.

We would love hearing from you as to how you felt the biking season went and any ideas you may have for improvements on topics such as 

routes
policies
decorum
safety
leadership
pace
stops
lunch
etc.

Jane has decided not to co-lead in the fall but we are happy to let you know that Joel Ross has agreed to take her place.

Many thanks to Jane and Joel!!

We hope that you all have a happy, healthy and safe summer!

Sincerely,

Jane and Bill
