Covid-19 Club Ride Rules
Do not participate in any ride if you are feeling unwell.
All riders must have a face covering (masks, buffs, neck gaiters, etc.).
Face coverings must be worn and “up” anywhere the group gathers for more than a few minutes (lowering for photos is acceptable) when social distancing cannot be maintained, e.g.: - Ride start - Mechanical stops (flats, chain drops, etc.) - Water and bathroom stops
Wearing face coverings is recommended whenever possible during the ride.
If a rider feels that it is their right not to wear a face covering, they should not participate in the club rides.
On Bun Rides or any food stops, please be aware of and adhere to the local county's rules on indoor and outdoor dining and gathering (e.g., rules on how many unvaccinated people from mixed households may sit closer than six feet, etc.).

A newsletter feature highlighting little known Strava segments.
Only 12 riders including 2 BCCC members have recorded a time on the Peninsula Verde Dr segment. The KOM may be hard to get, but the QOM is within reach.
Thus far there has been no interest in this feature, so let's add another segment; I hate right hand turn springs!
This segment climbs up Firthridge Road from Indian Valley Road, only 10 riders have recorded a time including 2 BCCC members. Who will take the KOM from Axer Bloodprince? The QOM is easily up for grabs!
