Lancaster Country Ride Roundup
Thanks to everyone who came out to ride our annual rally. We had a total of 1,322 riders, which we think is a new record. A special thanks goes out to all of our club members who volunteered to make this year's rally a big success. We hope all of you had as much fun as we did at the rally. Great wether, great wildflowers, and great people!
Here are links to photos from the rally. Check them out, you might be in some of them!
If you know of other photos from the rally, send the link to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post it here.
New members receive a pair of our signature GDB socks!

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.
