   2017 Ride Guidelines and Complete Ride Schedule

 

 

Weekend Ride Start Times

 

Please remember to bring you Membership Card to each ride. The ride start times for April and October will continue to be 10:00 AM.  The starting times for the majority of the May through September rides will be 9:00.  Please note the start times when planning to attend a ride.

 
If a Ride Leader is not assigned to an upcoming ride by midnight of the Thursday preceding the ride date, the ride will be CANCELLED! Please review the Ride Leader tab to sign up to be a ride leader!

 

Weekend Ride Guidelines

 

  • Non-members are allowed to ride a Cream City CC ride ONE TIME as a guest. Then they will need to join the club and ride as active members.
  • All Cream City CC members will need to print their own cue sheets by downloading them from the CCCC website Documents Library and printing them out or uploading them to their smartphone app. The route MAPS are not currently available on the CCCC website. Members will need to provide their own maps for any scheduled weekend ride. There will be no ride packets provided at ride starts. Wednesday Ride cue sheets will usually be provided by the Wednesday Ride leaders. 
  • There are a few .gpx or .tcx files now added to the Document Library, provided by individual club members. These are unofficial and unverified for accuracy compared to the printed cue sheets, but they are available for members riding with GPS devices. 

Weekend Ride Pace Scale

 

We have also added a new ride pace scale to our rides so that our riders know what to expect.

Pacing averages will be as follows:

"A" = 16 mph and above. Fast pace, sometimes over 20 MPH, dropping allowed. You will need to keep that pace to stay with the group.

"B" = 13-16 mph - Average pace, might get to 20 mph, will regroup at mid points, no-drop riding.
"C" = 10-13 mph - Recreational pace, might get up to 18 mph, will regroup at mid points. No-drop riding will be enforced on the ride.
"D" = 10 mph or less - Group riding at this pace. We will go at the speed of the group. No-drop riding will be enforced on the ride.



2017 Ride Listing will be added when it is available!


CREAM CITY CYCLE CLUB

2017 RIDE SCHEDULE


 

Come join the Cream City Cycle Club for another year of enjoyable bicycling with old friends and new.  Roam the country roads and back streets of Southeastern Wisconsin.  As usual, this year’s rides have something for everyone.  Difficulty ranges from easy to challenging with mileages from less than 20 to 70.

 

This club asks that you ride responsibly. Keep yourself and your bicycle in good riding condition.  Obey the ‘rules of the road’ and carry necessary equipment including water bottles, spare tubes, and bicycle frame pump.  Stay aware at all times of what’s around you – vehicles, other bicyclists, dogs, potholes etc. and be prepared to respond accordingly.  This club encourages members and guests riding with us to be courteous bicyclists.  By setting an example for other riders, we can help drivers learn to respect and accept bicycles on the road.  Remember: Responsible bicyclists stay safer and have more fun riding.

 

 

Cream City Cycle Club strongly promotes the following SAFETY POLICY:

  1. Learn and practice safe bicycling skills.
  2. Learn the rights and responsibilities of bicyclists and practice what you learn.
  3. Always wear a correctly fitted CPSC approved helmet that is in good condition.

 

IMPORTANT!  Ride start times vary throughout the year so check the schedule carefully.  The club does its best to make sure every ride occurs as scheduled.  Note that start times, locations and actual rides may be changed or canceled due to various circumstances.  For the latest updates, check our web site: www.creamcitycycleclub.com under theRides and Events Calendar” tab.


 

Things to remember about CCCC rides

  • Make sure your bike is in good working condition before coming to a ride.  It will make the ride more enjoyable.
  • Plan to arrive at the ride starting location 20-30 minutes prior to the published ride start time. The ride leader will make his or her announcements 5 minutes prior to the published ride start time. Showing up early will allow you to set up your bicycle and sign in and get situated. One late arrival will prevent all riders from leaving on time.
  • Look at the ride start driving directions found at the end of the ride schedule. Be familiar with the turns and street to get to the ride start.
  • Always be prepared. Remember to bring biking accessories. Things like extra tubes, patch kit, pump, tire levers, tool kit, and wrenches are highly recommended. Cell phones are encouraged, but not necessary in case you are stranded with no ability to continue the ride. You may be on your own for repairs, so being prepared will make your bicycling experience more enjoyable. Without the proper tools, it can make your ride a miserable one.
  • Be prepared to adapt to different weather conditions. Things like wind, rain, sleet, and temperature changes will occur during the ride. A good quality rain jacket or windbreaker will help ease the discomfort of the ride. If you don’t bring it, you can’t wear it.
  • The ride leader(s) will have all participants sign-in and get the group started on the looped ride of the day.
  • Your membership card must be shown before signing in
  • Club members should print their own cue sheets from the web site “Documents” tab.  The ride leader will have cue sheets for non-members.  Bring a clip to fasten the cue sheet on your bike.  Make sure to review the cue sheet prior to the ride to familiarize yourself with the area you will be riding into.
  • Make sure your water bottles are full. This is common sense but some of us need reminders, especially on hot summer rides. Dehydration can sneak up on you very quickly without you knowing it. Drink and drink often.
  • Use hand signals. No one can read a rider’s thoughts. Letting other bicyclists and motorists know your intentions will earn respect with bicycles and cars. Don’t yell “clear” because it will set up a trap for other bicyclists. A safe rider is a smart rider. Caution should always be considered at intersections.
  • Always choose a route within your own cycling ability. Do not try to ride more than you think you can. There are no sags on our rides. It will make the bicycling experience more pleasurable.
  • Most of all have fun. That’s what we’re all about.

 

 

Weekend Ride Start Times

 

The ride start times for April, October and November will be 10:00 AM.  The starting times for the majority of the May through September rides will be 9:00 AM.  There may be a few rides that have staggered start times.  Please note the start times when planning to attend a ride.

 

 

Weekend Ride Pace Scale

 

Here is a ride pace scale to our rides so that our riders know what to expect.

Pacing averages will be as follows:

"A" = 16 mph and above. Fast pace, sometimes over 20 MPH, dropping allowed. You will need to keep pace in order to keep up with the group.

"B" = 13-16 mph - Average pace, although at times speed may reach 20 mph, will regroup at mid points, no-drop riding.
"C" = 10-13 mph - Recreational pace, although at times speed may reach 18 mph, will regroup at mid points. No-drop riding will be enforced on the ride.
"D" = 10 mph or less - Group riding at this pace. We will go at the speed of the group. No-drop riding will be enforced on the ride.


 

 “Holiday Party” Rides

 

One of the rides during the weekends of Memorial Day and Labor Day are being designated as “Holiday Party” rides.  This means that these will be “members only” rides and the club will sponsor a post-ride lunch for the riders.  There is only one mileage so members have the opportunity to socialize while riding as well as at the end.

 

Wednesday Morning Social Rides

 

The club offers rides on Wednesday mornings that are designed to be social rides whereby the riders ride in groups and no rider is left to ride alone.  Most of these rides start at an eating establishment where the group has lunch afterwards.  See www.creamcitycycleclub.com for the volunteer ride leaders and the ride starting times and locations.

 

 

CCCC Camping Rides

 

PREREGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL CAMPING RIDES IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE YOUR TENT SPACE.

Although camping rides are open to non-members, when space is limited, priority will be given to club members up to 2 weeks before the trip. So, don’t be disappointed. Call the trip leader in advance.

 

The cost for the camp site will be $5 per person per night for all club members.  Non members of Cream City, Bay View, News Pedalers, or Spring City Cycle clubs will be charged an extra $5 per night for camping. A two night minimum charge will be required, except for the Self-contained riders. 

Please contact Mark Steckhahn for more information. Mark Steckhahn 414-453-6872 or steck58@att.net.




Ride types

Looped:  Also known as car camping. Drive a car or carpool to the chosen campground and put up your tent for the weekend. All Cream City rides start at the campground and loop back to the start.

Self-contained: Carry all your gear with you on the ride to the campground. Everything you need for yourself (clothing, tent, etc.) is contained on your bike. (No sags here)  Contact the ride leader for details about specific camping rides.
