Dust off those bikes! We ride on Tuesday

We just can't pass up the opportunity to ride with the forecast showing 13 and sunny! For COVID19 reasons, the club will be making efforts to keep groups small. Multiple rides on the same day helps, and that's what we have in mind for Tuesday. A few housekeeping items first:

The necessaries

  • As with all things affected by COVID, so too will our rides be. COVID Protocols are in place and all members should familiarize themselves with them.
  • All members must have signed and returned a completed COVID Waiver.  If you didn't receive and return yours, please email us and let us know. We'll get it out to you zippy zap fast.
  • For the purposes of contact tracing, All riders must RSVP when you wish to join a ride. (see below)
  • Ride Planners reserve the right to limit numbers on their rides, so be careful to note if there is a maximum number of participants on a given ride.
  • Unfortunately, Guests are not permitted to ride with the NHCC for the time being. (sorry)
  • We have a new structure for how we define rides! Check it out!
