Updates - Are you ready to ride?

The bike inspection last Saturday went great! It was very nice to see all of you and your parent's.

During our club meeting yesterday, we went over some final details before our first club ride on December 3rd. To recap:

1. First Ride is on Wednesday, December 3, 2008 at 3:00pm.
2. Meet at the back gate down near the athletic fieldhouse.
3. Ride is over at 4:45pm. We will return to the same gate at the athletic fieldhouse. Parent’s can pick you up there. I DO NOT recommend riding home in the dark!
4. I must have the following documents for you to be able to join us on the ride: SoCal League Release of Liability, St. Francis HS Athletic Emergency/Medical Information Form, St. Francis HS Preparticipation Medical History Form.

For the first ride, bring:
Mountain Bike (Check your tire pressure)
Flashing red taillight
Clipless Pedals and Cycling Shoes (Not mandatory but will be after December rides).
Gloves and Eye Protection
Cycling Shorts
Cycling Jersey
Vest (or windbreaker) and Arm Warmers
Water (Bottle or Camelback)
Nutrition (Gu, Clif Bar)
Spare tube and inflation device (Pump or Air Cartridge)

Helmet Rule: If your legs are over the bicycle, even if you aren’t pedaling, you must have your helmet on and it must be fastened. There are NO warnings. If you are caught on the bicycle without a helmet, you will be dismissed from the club.
