Wednesday Night Training Ride
  April 16, 2014: It might be a little cooler than last week, but it is going to be a wonderful night to ride a bike and we do hope that you will join us! The ride tonight will be starting at 6:00pm. We hope that you will be able to join us as we continue training for le Tour de Femme! Remember, the ride time is 6:00pm. Looking forward to seeing all you tonight.

Our friends at WRAL Weather are calling for sunny, windy and brisk this morning with wind chills in the 20s, then sunny with a bit less wind this afternoon, bit still unseasonably cold. Highs in the lower to mid 50s. High pressure will bring a taste of winter back to the area, with freezing temperatures expected during the nights, along with very cool days. By the time we get into the holiday weekend, temperatures should warm up to near normal.

Safety

Rules of the road: When you are on the road, it is important to remember that you are considered to be a "slow moving car" by the law. So, that being said, when you are on the road, remember to follow all the same rules as you would while driving. A great example is when you come to a stop sign, Do Not ride up on the right side of a stopped car to rejoin other riders. Stop behind the car just as you would when you are in a car.
