    Is your bike ready for the Spring?

    Let us show you what your bike needs before you head out for your first club ride. We’ll learn how to assess and discuss possible servicing in detail. Andy’s hope is that the attendees’ early rides will be trouble free and they will be able to better monitor and anticipate their bikes needs during the rest of the season.  Attendees may bring their bikes and, time permitting, Andy will assess each bike’s condition.

We’ll instruct everyone through a trial tire/tube repair. If attendees wish to bring fresh tires or tubes they are welcome to. Questions about care, prevention and current trends will be covered.

    Expect to get dirty. Class size is limited to insure best instructor/attendee interaction.

    Annual RBC Spring Awards Banquet 

    Let's get this party started! ....the 2020 cycling season.  It's been a long winter.

    Hope to see you on Saturday, April 4th. Bring A DISH TO SHARE - we always end up with a nice variety.

    The location is Dolomite Lodge, at Jackson Rd and Atlantic Ave, in Penfield Town Hall Campus. 

    As always, there will be a season kick-off ride before the banquet.

    The lodge will be open, so you can go in and socialize after the ride.  Otherwise please be there at 5:00 PM. We'll aim to eat at 5:30, followed by the Awards Presentation.

    Spring Cleaning? If you'd like to unload jerseys and/or cycling gear, mark the items with your name and a price, and it may sell during the gathering!  We'll have the usual "5 and 10" table.

    How much do you really know about safe riding?

    We are excited to be able to offer a series of bicycle safety classes this year led by RBC Member, Lori Burch.  Lori is a Cycling Instructor certified by the League of American Bicyclists.  

    Part 1 (Thursday May 21, 6:30PM, Rain date May 28) will cover basic bike handling skills for the beginning cyclists or for those looking to improve their handling skills.  

    Part 2 (Saturday, May 23, 1:00PM, Rain date May 30) will cover hazard avoidance skills as well as recommended gear for safe cycling.  

    These will be hands-on, active participation classes, so bring your bike, rain jacket and your helmet!  Class size is limited to a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 attendees. Sign up required.  As these parts are largely held outside, extreme weather will be a cause to reschedule.  

    A registration fee of $25 is required when signing up.  Current RBC members will have this fee refunded upon completion of both parts of the Safety Class.  

    Part 1-  Improve your comfort level and confidence with riding on 2 wheels!  This is a hands-on, active participation cycling class so bring a helmet and your bike.  In this class participants will learn about and practice the following basic cycling skills in the safety of a closed parking lot:

    • Proper bike and helmet fit
    • The ABC Quick Check for a safe ride
    • Effective starting and stopping
    • How to ride in a straight line
    • Basic shifting
    • How to “scan” (looking behind you) while moving
    • Proper signaling
    • Quick stop

    Part 2-  Once you have mastered basic handling skills, the next step in riding a bike safely is to learn how to avoid common road hazards with ease. This is a hands-on active participation cycling class so bring a helmet and your bike.  In this class participants will learn about and practice the following skills in the safety of a closed parking lot:

    • Proper helmet fit
    • The ABC Quick Check for a safe ride
    • Quick Stop
    • Rock Dodge
    • Avoidance Weave
    • Quick Turn

    Additionally participants will learn about recommended tools, accessories and equipment to carry with them when riding to keep the rider safe and prepared.
