Based on membership feedback, we will be providing season long education on Safe Riding from both rider and ride leader perspective. Every 4 to 6 weeks, we will have a panel of 3 to 4 ride leaders speak on 2 or 3 aspects of riding. This will be information that will help educate our base which should translate into safe rides.
