Changes in the Best of the Southwest Bike Rides
Joe Rohner and I are changing schedule for the Best of the Southwest and Best of the Northwest weekly rides. The start locations will be reduced to two: Joe Pool Lake (Lynn Creek Marina) and Grapevine (Outdoor World parking lot). These two locations will be alternated each week. They are conveniently located and offer the potential for a variety of routes with some weather protections.
Four months of the year have a 5th Saturday which will be the Ride Leader's Choice ride. Joe and I will try to get feedback from our riders as to preferences and make plans accordingly. If you have a route preference that you would like to lead, let us know.
I think we have the best routes in the GDB. Please visit the Event Calendar and join us for one of our rides to see for yourself! Your feedback is welcome.
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.
