What you need to know about leading an RBC ride.


2021 Ride Leaders Meeting Presentation

Everything you need to know about being a ride leader.

Reporting an incident (on a club ride)


Ride Waiver (sign-up sheet / ride log) 

Leading a ride? You will need this!



Return completed ride logs to:
          Brad Jensen
          62 S Estate Dr.
          Webster, NY 14580


Be a hero and print out an extra copy of the ride log to stick in your glove compartment in case the ride leader doesn't show up.


Ride Cancellation

RBC rides are only cancelled if there is a declared emergency by public authority (local/regional/state).

Ride leaders are to find substitutes or let folks know they won't be there (via Meetup).

Ask riders to complete and send a waiver (ride log) to ensure insurance coverage if no leader will be present.

Discuss options in the Meetup event when conditions are "iffy". This is especially important for a remote ride.

You are not obligated to drive to a remote ride (>1h drive) if no one has RSVP'd on Meetup. For local rides (<1h drive), please do your best to be at the start or ensure a substitute leader is there.

More info/discussion here: Ride Cancellation Policy.pdf


Ride Start Time Change

Now that most members are using Meetup, ride start time can be changed due to weather to salvage a club ride that would otherwise not be attended.

Such changes must be done with prominent advance notice (by ~7pm the night before) in consultation with the Rides Director (rbcrides@gmail.com).

If agreed, the Meetup event title and time will be edited to call attention to the change. Example:

    TIME CHANGE: Honeoye Falls-East Groveland

There will only be one start time (sign-in) for a ride. Those who prefer to start at a different time should arrange privately to avoid fragmentation and confusion with the club ride.

Supported Ride (SR) start times should not be changed, as this is the traditional expectation for these rides.

Need a substitute ride leader?

If you can't lead a ride you signed up for, you need to find a substitute ride leader. 

Your best bet is to check with your riding friends.

You can send an email to all of this year's ride leaders asking if anyone can sub for you.  Send to: rbcrideleaders@googlegroups.com
