Group Ride Update

LWA Members, 

The NO CLUB RIDE rule has been extended through May 3rd. 

That doesn't mean you need to stop riding outside, it just means You Need to Ride Safely, Here’s How to Do It Safely Right Now from Bicycling Magazine https://www.bicycling.com/health-nutrition/a31788482/how-to-ride-safely-during-coronavirus/

Another ride idea is to use YouTube videos. Take a ride in Italy, France, or stay in the USA while riding your trainer. If you are of the competitive nature, check out Swift, RGT Cycling and other group ride websites. (some are offering reduced rates during COVID-19) Just be sure to read the fine print! 

Again, it's especially important for those with high risk factors, to follow the CDC guidelines: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

LWA Members:

As we look forward to the 2020 riding season, we are now confronted by the real health threat that the COVID-19 outbreak has on our club and society.  As you can see below, USA Cycling has suspended all permits, and has recommended canceling all Club/Team Group Rides/Events/Meetings through April 5th.  

LWA is a Club member of USA Cycling, therefore all LWA rides posted on Meetup are hereby cancelled through April 5th.  

Be safe and stay healthy! 

Your LWA Executive Team,

March Message from our President

Welcome New and Renewing Members - 

Sunday is the day, "Daylight Saving Time" rides will be starting later in the day for those of us who have the four letter word going on, "work" - for some members, rides may not have stopped during the winter months, for others, it may be our first rides of the season.  Thank you to our ride leaders for posting rides through the winter months: Bert, Carl, Dave, Dick, Frieder, Jack, John Munsch (our ride leader of 2019), Rich F, Richard, Tom D, and Torie.  Again without "YOU", there is no "US". Thank you Ride Leaders.

Co-leading rides and other thoughts

Hello LWA Members,

This is my first post and I want to share 2 thoughts:  First, I want to say a big THANK YOU to Dave Drummer and Jim Fullerton for developing and advocating this LWA Blog process.  It took me a while to sign up and I suspect it will take some time to get traction, but I think it will be a very valuable way for us to communicate.
