In addition to the outstanding work that Don Silas and others have done to build a group of cyclists who ride longer distances in a no one is left behind format, the club is also working to reboot our legacy mentoring program. We have passed the point of admitting our long standing deficiencies and are working to meaningfully move our actions to directly align with our mission statement.
What we are doing: We will build a group of ride guides who can provide an excellent group ride experience for new/novice/inexperienced riders at a pace and distance that suits them whatever that may be.
When are we doing this: Our goal is to provide this experience on every CIBA ride. For this season we have targeted at least 6 rides as a pilot which are Old Schoolhouse Tour (April 15th) , Pedalmentalist (April 16th), Tour of the Boonies (May 21st), Gray Goat Franklin Start of Summer (June 17th), Nutter Butter (June 24th), and Tri County (July 15th). More may be added at a later time.
You can help in two ways... Sign up to be a guide or group participant and/or help spread the word and invite people to come to these 6 rides.
