Welcome to 2017
Our training ride season has kicked itself into high gear! The warm weather the last couple of weeks has led to some great rides. Congratulations to those who joined us on Sooner Sufferfest last weekend and survived!
So far this year all three groups (A, B & C) have been doing the same ride each night and this seems to be working well. I hope this trend continues!
Tonight will kick off our monthly club gatherings for the 2017 ride season. On the third Thursday of each month we will ride 801 Farmington and then head over to Old Nick’s Pub for some post ride refreshment. Please join us.
Reminder: Our Annual PFBC Fundraising Campaign is underway. The campaign runs through the 2017 Bikes for Kids LYRMC, to be held on Saturday, May 13th. Please take a moment to renew your annual membership and pre-register for the LYRMC. 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. The LYRMC active.com registration is available for $25 Pre-Registration. ($30 day of event) 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.
Thank you to JA KING for their continued support of our Bike for Kids program.

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.
