    1st "Hot Dog Night", and New Member Ride!

    For Food "Head Count" -- E-mail RSVP HERE!

    We, your Cleveland Touring Club Leadership Council (LC), invite all members, and ESPECIALLY new members, to ride with us at the Wednesday May 31 evening group rides at North Chagrin Reservation.  If you have been a member and haven't ridden much, please take this opportunity to attend and meet fellow riders.

    May 31 is the first "Hot Dog Night" of the 2017 season.  "Hot Dog Night" is a gathering of CTC riders to enjoy socializing and food after the evening's ride.  The Cleveland Touring Club supplies hot dogs and buns, and CTC members provide potluck.  So there is usually something for everyone to eat and drink -- vegans, too!


    If you cannot make the ride start times on Wednesday due to a schedule conflict, we encourage you to attend the potluck anyway so you can still meet others, learn about the club, riding styles, other rides, and what we do that fits your schedule.  We want to get to know you and for you to know this is YOUR club, that you are welcome, and most of all we want you to have fun!

    Additionally, post-ride potlucks are planned on the last Wednesday of June, July, and August at North Chagrin, so if you cannot make this one, please try to attend the next one!

    RIDE DETAILS:

    There are four well attended rides from which you can choose:

    • A/B:  16-18+ average MPH
    • C:  14-16 average MPH (no drop)
    • Alt-C:  11-14 average MPH (no drop)
    • Social:  less than 14 MPH (no drop)

    WHO:  All members, and especially new members
    WHAT:  Evening group rides followed by hot dogs and potluck
    WHEN:  May 31, 2017 -- ride start:
