1. It has been brought to my attention that some riders have experienced people who think they know the rules and regulations of Cyclists and Cars on the Road.
Just in case you are curious what you can and can't do CLICK HERE(MTO RULES)
. And if you think you know, click it anyways:)
2. I have noticed on a few recent rides that there are riders that have not been able to keep the pace of the lead/main group and have fallen back. Sometimes it is because of the smallest thing like not being able to clip in in time, or maybe you weren't paying attention on the green light. Regardless, it really sucks when you're off the back and next to impossible to catch up. In order to continue following BCC's Mandate of Inclusiveness may I suggest the following:
When starting out the ride(during warm-up) riders at the front please ensure that the starts of the light are gradual and make sure that you account for all in the group. After the warm-up section, you can split into respective pace groups. This leads me to my next point.
Know your limits and if you are in the Lead Group/Fast Group and barely hanging on, try hooking up with riders a speed range lower, and you can do all the work for them. This will help them improve and help you get a solid work-out. Remember there is no glory in sitting in, but there is tonnes of glory if you pull into the wind:)!
I will do my part to organize the distances and routes to maintain inclusiveness but I can't be everywhere all the time. Thanks for your time in reading this and I hope that the BCC(Be Courteous Consistently) can continue to help all of its members grow/improve as riders and cyclists.
P.S.: Comments Welcome:)
