Dear fellow riders,
Join us this upcoming Saturday for a climb up to Mt. Hamilton. If you are planning to join this great ride, we highly appreciate it if you could join the Strava event so that we may have an idea of attendance and keep everyone updated. Also feel free to ping me by phone or directly via email if you decide to join us from a different location rather than the usual starting point in Los Gatos. Also please notice that the starting time has been moved 30 minutes behind (8.00 am) so that to be back at a reasonable time.

Notice that despite the ride has been marked as a tempo ride, we will have several regrouping points so as to avoid leaving anyone behind.

In order to enjoy your ride while safeguarding yours and your fellow riders safety here a few basic rules that we encourage you to follow:

• Introduce yourself to new riders. If you’re a new rider, introduce yourself at the start of the ride.

• Roll out from the start/regroups gently so everyone has a chance to warm up and get going.

• Use hand signals and call out turns, stops and road obstructions. Repeat the message through the group.

• Mechanicals: relay the message to the front. Help out the victim. Wait for the victim at the next regroup.

• Ride paceline / 2×2 on the flats. Ride leader will initiate a rotating paceline when the group desires.

• Follow behind the wheel in front to avoid the bunch spilling over the road.

• Don’t ride on the sidewalk at Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company

• If you leave a ride early, notify someone so the group doesn’t think they lost you

• Please carry ID just in case.

• Riders must wear a helmet. Riders are encouraged to wear a helmet on LGBRC rides and riders are discouraged from riding with LGBRC groups if they don’t wear a helmet.

• Riders are always responsible for their own safety. If you feel uncomfortable riding with the group, gently move to the rear of the group.

• Look for yourself for cars and other road users, and OBEY TRAFFIC rules – you are responsible.

• Do NOT cross the centerline. You will be asked to leave the ride if you do so.

• If you’re new to group riding, make this known to the ride leader and ask for help.

• Protect your front wheel, do not overlap wheels.

• Do not make sudden lateral movements at any time.

• Be gentle on brakes so as not to suddenly stop in front of someone.

• No Aero Bar use.
