Opening Night (Part Deux) for the 2017 Piedmont Flyers Training Rides is here!
this year all three groups (A, B & C) will be doing the same ride each
night. Also please refresh yourself on the rules of the road below.
Opening night also kicks off our Annual PFBC Fundraising Campaign. The campaign will run from today through the 2017 Bikes for Kids LYRMC, to be held on Saturday, May 13th. Please take a moment to renew your annual membership during the fundraising campaign. Your membership dollars go towards both our Bikes for Kids program and our group ride insurance through the League of American Bicyclists.
For more information on the LYRMC please click here. We are still looking for volunteers to help with our rest stop. If you would like to help out please contact Bruce Abbey or myself.
Reminder, don't miss our Sunday afternoon ride, 2:00 pm from the square. The ride length will start to lengthen as the season gets going. Check the PFBC Facebook page for ride details. Expect each ride to be 40-50 miles at a 18-19 mph pace.

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. Please go with a faster group if you want a faster ride.
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.
PLEASE FOR YOUR SAFETY and those around you, adhere to these rules of the road.
