Ride Information


The color coding for the ride events is: RED = No Ride Leader(s), YELLOW = one Ride Leader, but no Ride Leader for other route(s); GREEN = Ride Leaders for all routes are assigned. There is a LEGEND button at the upper right of the Calendar page that opens to show all the color codes used on the Calendar.

CCCC Ride policy is that if there is a ride route without a Ride Leader prior to the ride date, the leaderless route will be cancelled, and route with Ride Leader will continue as the only sanctioned, official CCCC ride that day. The leaderless route to be cancelled may be the long route or the short route, based on the Ride Leader's route choice. Therefore it is important for club members to monitor the Ride Calendar and check for future YELLOW ride dates, and volunteer as Ride Leaders for the open routes. This will promote CCCC weekend rides that will be pleasant and successful experiences for all club members.

Rider Notes and Tips

This club asks that you ride responsibly. Keep yourself and your bicycle in good riding condition. Obey the ‘rules of the road’ and carry necessary equipment. Stay aware at all times of what’s around you – vehicles, other bicyclists, dogs, potholes etc. and be prepared to respond accordingly. This club encourages members and guests riding with us to be courteous bicyclists. By setting an example for other riders, we can help drivers learn to respect and accept bicycles on the road. Remember: Responsible bicyclists stay safer and have more fun riding.

Cream City Cycle Club strongly promotes the following SAFETY POLICY

  1. Learn and practice safe bicycling skills.
  2. Learn the rights and responsibilities of bicyclists and practice what you learn.
  3. Always wear a correctly fitted CPSC approved helmet that is in good condition.
  4. Headphones/earbuds are prohibited on CCCC rides

CCCC Camping Rides

 

PREREGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDES IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE YOUR TENT SPACE.


When space is limited, priority will be given to club members up to 2 weeks before the trip. So, don’t be disappointed. Call the trip leader in advance.

 

The cost for the camp site will be $5 per person per night for all club members.  Non members of Cream City, Bay View, News Pedalers, or Spring City Cycle clubs will be charged an extra $5 per night for camping. A two night minimum charge will be required, except for the self-contained riders. 


Please contact Mark Steckhahn for more information. Mark Steckhahn 414-453-6872 or steck58@att.net.
