Rider Guidelines

  1. Both members and nonmembers are welcome to join most rides.  Nonmembers will be asked to sign a waiver form at the ride.  
  2. Check the WCCC calendar for ride schedule.
  3. Choose rides that are right for your ability and interests.  Use the Ride descriptions, or contact the Outreach Coordinator if you have questions.
  4. Arrive well before the start of the ride. Rides will depart on-time.
  5. Approved helmets are required.
  6. Earphones are not permitted.
  7. It is a good idea to carry identification.
  8. In most cases, bikes should have a water bottle, pump and spare tube, but members will gladly pitch in if help is needed on a ride.  For some urban rides, a lock and bus or cab fare will do in a pinch.  
  9. Know about bicycle safety and rules of the road.  See safety web links.
