Thank you, Ursula Cunneen and Kevin Brickley for leading the Saturday Roadies Long ride the past 3 years! They have decided to pass ride leadership reins to someone else when the new year comes round. Please see Kevin's NCCC Forum post for more details on what this entails. If you're interested, please let them know. As they did three years ago, you might want to team up with another rider to share the duties. They and others with experience can mentor you to learn the ropes of selecting routes and leading the rides. Our ride leaders are what keeps the club active and interesting week to week and you can take pride in knowing that you're helping out.
Update: The Billing Holiday is ending soon! Membership renewals will start going out again starting April 1, 2021 While rides have been suspended, expiration dates have been extended by our time out. A few of you have also paid as a matter of habit. Please login to your membership record to check your next expiration date. We all hope to be back in action soon but above all stay healthy.
The NCCC Board has decided to post scheduled group rides starting the week of Nov 9th. These group rides will have restrictions, in order to ensure riders' health as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Please read the new NCCC COVID-19 Rules before you decide to ride. They are designed to keep you and your fellow NCCC friends safe and healthy. Ride leaders will provide waivers that must be signed the first time you join in for the restart. You can save time by downloading the waiver here, filling it in, printing and signing and bringing it to that first ride. As promised, all memberships have been extended about 8 months (243 days to be precise) to account for the time that...
The Board has been considering if, how, and when to re-start official rides. We would like to get your input on the matter. Please respond by clicking on this survey link. Should the regular club rides resume in the next few months, new guidelines and rules for riders will be issued to help protect the health of everyone. We hope you are all safe and healthy; go carefully and maybe see you on the road sometime.
In mid June the club Board and ride leaders reviewed the possibility of resuming club group rides. You will be aware that many activities are re-opening although the rate of infection in San Diego county has been somewhat increasing of late. The balance of opinion is that NCCC should delay a resumption of official club rides. We will review this decision in a couple of months, depending on developments. However, several members are enjoying rides with one or two friends with necessary precautions: keep your distance, do not bunch up at stops, have a mask available for breaks and if you are feeling at all sick or "under the weather," stay home. Stay safe.
