Sun City Cycling Club
2021 Newsletter Volume 5
May 24, 2021
 
Several items of interest and reminders.
Please remember when riding this summer to have plenty of water and never pass up an opportunity to top off your water bottle.
 
  A. Group Riding:
Group riding requires special skills in addition to those required when riding alone. Several good sources for information can be found by googling Group Bicycling Skills. Attached is a summary of group etiquette requirements, several of which we need to devote our attention to and point out to fellow riders if they are violating them.
  B. Pandemic:
Lots of restrictions have been removed in AZ but please continue to exercise proper safety procedures and protocols as we move forward. Seems the proper thing to remember is to respect everyone’s right to be safe.
 
  1.  
Not everyone we ride with may be vaccinated so proper attention to safety precautions is advised. Respect fellow riders and the public as you encounter them.
  2.  
You have all worked hard to establish a good reputation for SCCC within the community. Let us maintain that and please follow all business requirements as we encounter them on our rides. Mainly carry a mask and use it when the business has it posted.
  3.  
A business has the right to require a mask and social distancing. If you do not want to respect their rights, then don’t use that business.

These statements are for the full year as we basically functioned independently of PMBC even before our October 1, 2020 separation date from PMBC. Also included is a simple budget for 2021.
 
  I. SCCC Video  
  The video that was made several weeks ago is now available on our website located in the gallery. Worth the watch. We look rather good as a club.
