June 13: Anniversary Ride & Picnic
Attention old & new CBBC members: Join CBBC on Saturday, June 13 to celebrate our 40th anniversary at our annual Anniversary Ride & Picnic. We'll have A, B, C & D rides leaving from Holicong Park and returning in time to share some tasty fare prepared by Chef Steve Farb. Check the online ride calendar for ride details, and don't forget to bring a side dish or dessert to share with the group. Come and meet new members and reconnect with old ones. If you'd like to help Chef Steve with set-up, cooking and/or clean up, please send an email to pres [@] cbbikeclub.org or post to the online Forum. Hope to see you there! IMPORTANT UPDATE: We need 2 additional ride leaders for this event at both C and C+. Please consider leading a ride.
Ad Hoc Rides
CBBC promotes the fun and safety of riding in groups! The ride calendar is established to be able to offer a variety of rides at all levels and allow members to plan their rides in advances. As we know our lives are not always predictable! Members are encouraged to post “Ad hoc” rides on the Forum and allow other members to join them.
Here is the “official” definition of a CBBC Ad Hoc Ride:
-The ride may be posted on the CBBC Forum no earlier than 48 hours of the ride date and time. Try to give members at least 24 hours notice.
-The ride is not considered a CBBC sponsored club ride.
-No approval needed by the Ride Coordinators.
-A cue sheet or sign in sheet is not needed.
-Ad hoc rides are not covered by the Club insurance policy.
-Ride start location and time is up to the ad hoc ride leader. Try not to compete with a regular club ride – those ride leaders are a precious few!
-The ride will not be credited toward the ride leader program.
-Please ride safely and courteously (especially if you’re wearing your club jersey!)
Check Out CBBC's Forum!
The new CBBC Forum is an online discussion site where members can hold conversations. It's similar in function to our former CBBCtalk listserv (which retired in February), but it allows access through our site. You can also subscribe to one, a few, or all topics to receive email notifications of new posts.
You need to be a CBBC member and log in in order for the items under the "Member Access" menu to be available, and to post to the Forum. If you've never logged in to the site but are a current member, use the Request a Login link there.
NOTE: If you are part of a "family" membership, you'll both need to utilize the primary member login name/PW for now. We plan to add capability for a second login as soon as it's available. We'll continue to share more tips in the Forum, in InGear, and in articles on the site like this one.
