    The evening is rounded off by the awards ceremony.  Of course there are the serious awards, but there are sure to be some humorous awards as well, which are always interesting.

    The new RBC Jerseys will be available for sale for $55.

    There will also no doubt be some "fleas" for sale since they seem to accumulate over the winter, so bring them along if you have any.

    With the increasing complexity of modern bikes we see many riders who don't understand their steeds and how to get the most out of them. We'll try to describe the systems, components and accessories on the many road bikes we ride. This will likely be a free ranging session and could drift from the outline depending on the attendees' needs. There will be no need to bring a bike, just your questions.

    Open to RBC members.

    • Penfield Hwy Dept, Jackson Rd


    Slow down, keep quiet and think. This is the Ride of Silence in a nutshell. Wednesday, May 20 6:15pm, cyclists from the greater Rochester area will gather at Penfield's highway dept. parking lot (on Jackson Rd) for the national 11th annual RoS and Rochester's 4th.

    We will ride a 9 mile loop in about an hour, in silence. Only the sounds of our bikes and the surrounds will accompany out thoughts of those riders who have been injured or died while cycling. Everyone is welcome, from the club wannabe racers to the casual cannel path coasters. The only requirement besides a bike and helmet is the desire to honor the fallen.

    The national organization has designed an event jersey available through their website http://www.rideofsilence.org . These jerseys come in men's, cut with an athletic fit, for $85. Delivery is direct from the manufacturer. To insure receiving them in time for May 21 they recommend ordering prior to April 15.

    So place the date on your calendar.  Take a break from the usual mid-week activities and give an hour of your life to those who lost theirs.
