Ride Schedule

Understanding the Waitlist

By Bruce Wells updated 11/17/20

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting rides to 8 riders.  You must sign up for a ride in advance to attend the ride.  If there are 8 or more riders already on the ride, you end up on the waitlist.

So how does the waitlist work?

It is a first come, first served system. The first rider to be waitlisted will be the first taken off the waitlist when a spot opens up. When you are taken off the waitlist, you get an email saying you are now on the ride. You may also be taken off the waitlist

(Understanding the Waitlist continues ...)

Change to the Full Ride/Waitlist Policy

8 Riders per ride before waitlist kicks-in
By Greg Sims updated 11/17/20

Due to the uptick in COVID-19 activity surrounding us all, the Full Ride policy is changed from 10 riders to 8. Given this, the ninth and subsequent members signing up for a ride will be placed on the waitlist. Let's all be diligent in doing the smart things with regard to this virus like limiting rest stops, bring your own food, making sure to maintain social distancing and masking up when required.

      Clone of Bruce's ride at an A- pace.

      This pandemic tested ride is a real winner. Roads we don't normally do, and a different way back from Ridgefield that will become your new favorate. Stop in Bethel for coffee, bring a mask. The ride also has lots of flatter sections on wide straight roads so we can practice rotating pace lines. On Rt 172 back into Bedford, a classic pace line road, we can put everything learned into practice.
