Upcoming events

As we move towards the fall cycling season there are a number of events for you to consider:

The laws applying to cycling on roads in Connecticut changed on July 1st.  Check out the full impact at Bike Walk CT.

Club news

The club has created a Facebook Swap Shop page.  Members can browse items for swap or sale.  Note to be able to post items on this page you must join the page, which is restricted to current members of the club.

Our 3 Foot signs are being deployed by more towns.  The latest town to agree to use the signs is Redding, taking the number of towns to 7.  In total, 116 signs have been deployed so far.  Contact Nancy Rosett if you are interested in helping with this initiative.

The club has changed its communication policies.  Members please ensure that you are on @Chat, and join the club's Facebook group.  Please ensure you have chosen your email communication options - particularly for the ride schedule.  This is in your member profile which you can find on the landing page after signing-in.  Don't forget to update your profile to ensure that you receive the weekly ride schedule email.

Sound Cyclists' Coastal Century

The 13th annual "Coastal Century" has been scheduled for September 13th and posted to the SCBC Ride Calendar. Ride Leaders are needed to lead A, B, B- and C+ groups. If interested, please get in touch with the appropriate Ride Coordinator.

For the many who have previously participated in this event no further explanation is required. Just mark the date on your calendar if you're interested in joining us again. Last year more than 55 cyclists turned out. 

If you're unfamiliar with the "Coastal Century" it is a once-a-year SCBC club ride. The 101 mile course starts in Guilford CT and covers some of the sweetest cycling sections in Southern Connecticut. It's a self supported ride designed for the capable and self-motivated cyclist who doesn't need the inducement of free T-shirts, raffle prizes or catered rest stops to go out and pedal 101 miles with a group of supportive and like-minded friends. There's no fund-raising or registration fee either. Just show up with your bike and helmet.

If you're thinking ahead and contemplating a post-Labor Day century ride, keep this one in mind.

Club Merchandise
