Well it's finally here and we certainly have a great weather forecast. Tomorrow at 6pm we will all meet at the Conexus Arts Centre for our first Skills and Drills night. We'll be handing out the jerseys, organizing the Groups and seeing just how good a rider each of you are!
I've asked the Ride Leaders to spend some time going over the various guidelines we follow to ensure a safe, fun ride. These include hand signals, passing a rider safely, what to do if you have a flat tire and a host of other little things. Once they are happy that you understand then they will move on to some simple bike handling drills.
It's important that we do Skills and Drills night this to refresh our memory after the winter and to help our new riders understand exactly what "Rider Up!" means...
Speaking of new riders...
42% of the riders that you will meet on Monday are new to Spoke n'Hot and part of our success is the warm welcome that we give to them. I've said this before, I know, but you're going to be friends anyway so you may as well say Hi now!
Don't forget to pump up your tires, shine your helmet and put your best jersey on, because it all starts tomorrow!
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
