Club Rides Start March 29th !

Our club rides are starting next week.
Our first Thursday Night ride will be on March 29th at 6:15 and our first Saturday ride will be at 9am on the 31st.
As always, we meet at the shop. Make sure to bring lights this Thursday as daylight savings time will not have started yet.
As before, there will normally be two groups at two different levels. Road bikes only please.

Please arrive on time or a bit before so that we can have a punctual start.

Wanted: Ride Leaders and Club Program Coordinator

Club membersWe’ve currently got 6 ride leaders, but have room for one or two more.
Ride leaders receive lots of great perks at the shop (deep discounts and free kit).
In addition to being a strong and safe cyclist,  we ask that ride leaders also have the following qualifications:
•    Know the roads of Geneva Canton and France Voisine.
•    Know how to fix flats and do minor repairs
•    Ride with the club for at least one month
•    Have enough spare time to commit to at least 2 rides a month from April through October.

Any keen women riders are encouraged to apply.

The “Program Coordinator” is a new position and would be in charge of:
•    coordinating leaders for the rides.
•    Announcing rides on Facebook and other social media platforms
•    Collecting and posting pictures of rides
•    Recruiting riders by helping with mailings and other general outreach.

The program coordinator is a volunteer position and receives the same benefits as ride leaders.
