Occasionally, but not quite, WEEKLY UPDATE

Tuesday, March 15 2016

Joel and I took advantage of both being off, on a mild spring day... we logged a few miles enjoying the Wake/Durham/Chatham/Orange/Alamance/Randolph county country side.... which brings me to the point. If you are around, and the weather is clear, why not post a ride? It doesn't have to be an epic ride... could be a simple ride to scooter (or anywhere) for lunch. Remember this is YOUR chapter... you joined it, so come out, come out... winter is over. All members must have their endorsement... and that is pretty much all you need to lead a ride. I am sticking to NOT leading more than 2 rides a month... but that doesn't mean my bike is sitting in the garage collecting pollen.

Ride safe... Ride often

Anyone interested in taking on a chapter "leadership role" (ie: Road Captain, Tail Gunner, Ride Leader, Safety Officer, Second Officer, or even First Officer)

If you want to step up go to www.southerncruisers.net/constitution.htm and read what SCRC national expects from officers (and members).

Then read the ride guidelines... www.southerncruisers.net/newriding.htm. They aren't "rules" but guides, but it does explain the role of ride leader better.

Finally, there is the "code of conduct": www.southerncruisers.net/coc.htm

"Road Captain/ride leader" is a good place to start... but you don't have to be a "Road Captain" to lead a ride. Just be willing to step up... You WILL miss a turn... and do a U-turn... everyone does... it's part of the "fun" and who knows... it could lead to a funny "road name".
