Sorry for the delay here folks. There is a new web manager here at Cycle Claremont and, kind of like changing from a mountain bike to a road bike, it takes just a moment to adjust. Updates in the future should run a little more smoothly, not to mention more timely. Anyway, if you can overlook the bit of heat that tried to cook us as we rode, the September Cycle Claremont ride went without a hitch. Always bring water, and drink before you get thirsty. A friendly group gathered in the early afternoon, from riders new to the group and first season returning veterans. A ride recap has already written up over at the CLR Effect, so I am going to let that suffice for this first ride rather than come up with something entirely new. You can read that post by clicking on the link. Future recaps will be posted up here. Thanks to all who came out; the larger the group the more fun everyone has. As soon as the October ride date is set I will let it be known. A special, fun activity for kids and families is being planned (think Halloween), so be prepared to save the date.

Twenty-five new members participated Cycle Claremont’s second ride today in spite of chilly temps and a chance of rain. Claremont Mayor Sam Pedroza was among 26 returning members who participated in last month’s inaugural event. Cookies, free coffee from Last Drop Cafe and an assortment of free bagels from 42nd Street Bagel Cafe warmed up the riders and volunteers.
The riders broke into smaller groups with staggered starts, each including a leader and ride coaches. Each group listened to a brief safety talk before riding the 4-mile route within Claremont’s Bicycle Priority Zone.
As each group returned to the lot, the riders hung out and socialized while enjoying more coffee and snacks.
And a good time was had by all!
It was a beautiful, sunny, crisp and clear Sunday morning, a perfect day for Cycle Claremont‘s inaugural 4-mile introductory ride around town. Balloons and volunteers greeted the 102 riders which included children and their parents, beginners and experienced, youngsters and oldsters, and Claremont City officials including Mayor Sam Pedroza. The pre-ride festivities included free coffee and bagels (donated by Starbucks and 42nd Street Bagel) and a talk about bicycle safety. Many members of the Claremont Senior Bicycle Group (CSBG) served as volunteers. More details and lots of great photos are available on The ClaremontCyclist blog.
