Many Thanks and Welcome

It is my great privilege and honor to close out my tenure as president of the Piedmont Flyers with two final pieces of information that you will hopefully enjoy. 

1. Thanks to JA KING for their continued support of our Bike for Kids program.

Many thanks to John King and the employees of J.A. King for their generous donation to our Bikes for Kids campaign.  John presented a check to Travis in January for over $2,500 to go to this great cause.

2. Say Hello to your new president

Jordan Brown has stepped into the breach and picked up the heavy mantle of leadership here at the Piedmont Flyers. As I step aside, I have a great deal of confidence that Jordan will do the Flyers proud, and take the cycling community to new and exciting places. Next time you see him, please say hi and extend to him the wonderful support you have extended to me.

Quick refresher of our road rules.

These rides are on open roads and all traffic rules must be obeyed. Helmets are required.

1. We depart Belnette Drive in groups of 8 to 10, single file to a regrouping site. Single file paceline allows motorist to pass safely. Keep gaps so cars can safely pass. 

2. From the regrouping site,  A group first, followed by the B and C groups. Please respect the intended average speed of each group, and ride with the group that best matches your ability and needs. 
  • The A group will typically average 23+ mph and may include high speed segments, attacks, and rapid paceline rotation. 
  • B group will generally average 21-22 mph and rides in a double paceline formation when more than 10 riders are present. 
  • C group will generally average 18-20 mph and normally rides in a double paceline formation when more than 10 riders are present. 

3. Do not let stop signs or intersections become break points. Allow the entire group to get through 
the intersection and back together before resuming speed. 

4. We have a sprint line. When coming back on Courtney-Huntsville-Shallowford routes. After 
the 421 bridge and go up the slight hill, at the top of the hill is a yellow turn ahead caution sign.
  • The sprint zone is an opportunity to practice sprinting with other cyclists; it is not intended to turn the entire ride into a race.
  • Typically in a training sprint, cyclists fan out and there may be several abreast the road – DO NOT CROSS THE YELLOW LINE OR BE SO INCONSIDERATE AS TO FORCE OTHER CYCLISTS OFF THE ROAD! 
5. SAFETY ZONE - From Hauser Road back to the square please ride single file in small groups as  motorist traffic picks up significantly as we return into Lewisville. 

PLEASE FOR YOUR SAFETY and those around you, adhere to these rules of the road. 

A final few thoughts:
  • These are training rides.  Don’t expect the group to stop for you if you have a flat or a mechanical problem.  
  • Be self-sufficient.  Carry a spare tube, an inflation device and a cell phone. 
  • While we do not intend to leave others behind, it is suggested that all riders review the posted routes online ahead of time.
  • If you are new to the ride, introduce yourself to some of the riders, find the leader of your speed group, and ask him or her any questions you may have.
Piedmont Flyers Bicycle Club is a non-profit educational, recreational and social organization for bicycling enthusiasts based in Lewisville, NC.

The goal of the Piedmont Flyers Bicycle Club is to promote and encourage bicycling in our community, for all levels of cyclists. From weekly rides to scheduled events, from trail preservation to event support - we are involved in a wide range of cycling activities.

We would like to invite you to join the Piedmont Flyers Bicycle Club.  There's no better way to meet other cyclists and join some great rides.

What your annual dues actually do
Over the course of a given year we host a number of fund raising rides and events for that cause and we have to purchase things like event insurance, food for our rest stops, promotion materials, website hosting and other things. A portion of your membership fee covers these costs. However, over 75% goes directly toward the bikes for kids fund. That's more than $15 of your $20 annual dues.
