New Event Calendar Changes For The 2018 Ride Season!
The 2018 ride season brings some changes to the CCCC Events Calendar. There is a new ride color code for upcoming rides. Previously, RED = NO Ride Leader, GREEN = at least one ride leader assigned. For 2017, RED = No Ride Leader(s), YELLOW = one Ride Leader, but no Ride Leader for other route(s). GREEN = Ride Leaders for all routes are assigned. There is a LEGEND button at the upper right of the Calendar page that opens to show all the color codes used on the Calendar.
CCCC Ride policy is that if there is a ride route without a Ride Leader prior to the ride date, the leaderless route will be cancelled, and route with Ride Leader will continue as the only sanctioned, official CCCC ride that day. The leaderless route to be cancelled may be the long route or the short route, based on the Ride Leader's route choice. Therefore it is important for club members to monitor the Ride Calendar and check for future YELLOW ride dates, and volunteer as Ride Leaders for the open routes. This will promote CCCC weekend rides that will be pleasant and successful experiences for all club members.
