Tuesday/Thursday Night Rides
Our popular evening rides re-started on Thursday-March 27 with 41 riders.
The first Tuesday night ride had 81 participants on a cool but dry night.
As the season starts it is a good time to revisit the club's ride rules. Please remember to share the road with drivers by NOT riding many abreast for long periods. Give drivers a chance to pass!
2013 Annual Meeting
The annual meeting was held 17 November at Art Space in Herndon and was attended by about 65 members and guests. The briefing summarizing the events for 2013 is here.
New This Year- Women's Rides
Last season the Club introduced a series of women's rides. Ride leader Lisa Mackem announced at the Annual Meeting that due to popular demand the Monday night Woman's rides will be held EVERY Monday night when they start again in 2014.
The distance ranges from 16-30 miles based on the will of the group, and all paces and women are welcome. Lisa Mackem may need the help of additional ride leader as the rides become more frequent and greater attendance may necessitate splitting into different groups.
Contact Lisa via email if you have any questions.
Century Training Rides
Under the leadership of then Club chair Dan Scrafford, the club held a series of rides geared specifically towards training for a century. These rides were no-drop and were led by experienced club members, all of whom had experience riding many century rides. RBC hopes to repeat these popular, highly attended rides again this year.
Bike to Work 2014 On Friday 16 May, RBC will support Bike To Work Day at the Reston Pit Stop located at the Wiehle Reston East Metro Plaza, a new location this year. RBC will provide Annual Memberships for door prizes. Any RBC members that can be at the Reston Pit Stop is welcome to support the RBC booth.
