    • Penfield Hwy Dept, Jackson Rd


    Slow down, keep quiet and think. This is the Ride of Silence in a nutshell. Wednesday, May 18 6:15pm, cyclists from the greater Rochester area will gather at Penfield's highway dept. parking lot (on Jackson Rd) for the national 12th annual RoS and Rochester's 5th.

    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 canal 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 18 they recommend ordering prior to April 10.

    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.

    Andy has done many multi day tours, from credit card fast to self contained camping. We will cover some of the basic steps in deciding what type, how long, where to ride and whether to camp or motel.

    A sample list of equipment for each will be provided. Anyone hoping to ride a many day tour (or has already) is invited. Anyone who has experience in touring is welcome to share their knowledge also.



    Open to RBC members.

    • Start anywhere - Destination: Public Market

    Would you be willing to lead a bike ride to the City of Rochester Public Market?

    A Bike Week Event

    I am recruiting Ride Leaders for rides to the Rochester Public Market on May 21, 2016.

    The Ride Leader should plan a route and lead the ride from their neighborhood to the Rochester Public Market on Saturday, May 21, 2016 during Bike Week.

    Start time should be approximately 8:00AM and plan on arriving at the Public Market at 9:00AM.

    The route should be less than ten miles from your neighborhood.

    Please select a starting point, plan the route, recruit neighbors and friends to ride with you, and lead the ride rain or shine. A group of 3 – 12 riders would be wonderful.

    Please send me details of what you plan and we will list the information in Bike Week Calendar of Events.

    After flats, wheel issues are the next problem area on bikes.
    While this clinic is still in the planning phase at this point Andy will likely build a wheel during the evening,
    explaining issues and factors involving the care, feeding and servicing of wheels as he goes along.

    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.
