Mid-season reminder: safety first

As of mid-June the OBC Sunday rides were past the one-third mark in the 2012 season.. By now, most of us have chosen our speed groups and are settling into the patterns of the routes. New members who took the group riding clinic are getting more comfortable with pack riding.

So this is the time to remind ourselves of the fundamentals of group riding that ensure everyone can have safe and enjoyable rides.

We're under 48 hours from the first riders departing Carleton and Perth. The RLCT committee has finished the planning phase - now with the help of a company of volunteers, it is time to execute on the plans!

I would like to share a few thoughts for the upcoming weekend:
