Ride Captain Corner!


Well, after another hard-fought campaign against multiple opponents, I once again came out victorious and will serve as your Ride Captain for another year.


We are off to a good start in 2017 with over 3,000 miles ridden in January, despite a number of very cold days and rain.  


Throughout the winter, we will continue to run our regular rides from the YMCA on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as well as our Tuesday/Wednesday night rides weather permitting.  We will also continue to schedule as many Sunday rides as we can.  


Starting later this Spring we will hold a Sunday ride from the Bistro as well as any rides scheduled to leave from Willowmere or Hartwood.  


While we had a couple of accidents in 2016, for the most part it was a very safe year considering we rode 95,000 plus club miles in all weather conditions.  Let's keep riding safe.  Vigilance is especially important during the winter with sand, gravel and debris on often wet roads.  


I will touch up the road markings for a regular rides later this Spring.  As always I stand ready to listen to and act on good suggestions for new rides or other ideas which would help make riding more enjoyable for our members.

     FAQ

    Why should you and your cycling friends be members of the Fredericksburg Cyclists Club? 

     

    Well, among other things we sponsor a lot of rides (right now about 4 a week) to encourage cyclists and make riding more fun, we, through our representation on the Virginia Bicycling Federation (VBF) promote cycling, cyclists rights and safe cycling legislation and we promote a variety of social events were we can get together with other cyclists.

     

    So, if you aren’t a current member in the FCC, we encourage you to join and take part in supporting cycling in our region. For further answers to questions you may have check out the FAQ!
