Holiday Party Photos
The Greater Dallas Bicyclists Holiday Party was held on Dec. 7th. The food was good and the camaraderie was outstanding. A great opportunity to catch up with people. The slate of club officers for the coming year was introduced and lots of toys and cash were donated to the Family Gateway (see below). Here are a few photos.

GDB Ride Rules Reminder
- No earbuds or headphones (music or phone) and no boom boxes (but bring all the conversation you want!)
- No use of cellphones while riding (please pull off and stop to take or make a call)
- Use common sense if you have aerobars - please don't use them while in tight formations on group rides
- Helmets must be worn on all GDB rides
A Note About Membership
The Greater Dallas Bicyclists (GDB) Board of Directors want to
emphasize the value and importance of a current membership in GDB.
Membership is $20 a year or $36 for two years. When one considers
staying current on the forum to keep up with ride changes and impromptu
gatherings, two annual picnics and a holiday party, our hosting the
annual Super Bowl Sunday ride to the West End for riders of all the area
clubs, and our major event of the year, the annual Lancaster Country
Ride -- the value of a $20 membership is clear.
Why is membership important? As hard as we work at safety and
remaining vigilant for hazards, we still need all riders to have signed a
waiver before riding in our group rides or attending our events.
How is that done? Are there folks walking around with
clipboards and waiver forms? Do we sort, file and store these forms?
No, it’s done in the membership sign-up process. Without the waivers,
we could not function as a club.
If you’ve been thinking of joining or if your membership has
lapsed and you’ve been putting off renewal, or you know someone who has,
do us all the favor of renewing today. Just click on the JOIN GDB link
above and join or renew today.
