 Special Notes

– Even though we like to ride hard we still a cycling club who stop for punctures, mechanicals and to regroup it’s all about safety in numbers but unfortunately we have a few bad apples who still disregard our numerous warnings of staying inside the yellow line if they persist we’ll be forced to stop the club ride and let them ride by themselves and follow afterwards it’s just not worth it to have any of our members get injured following them outside the yellow line in today’s times hospital bills are very expensive not to mention the lost of fitness when you injured please don’t forget to bring pepper spray;Tasers or any other means of defending yourself with on our club rides
