The club has a number of ways in which it communicates to its members and the public at-large. Each serves a specific purpose: Website, Ride News, email, and Facebook.
The Web site has two areas: general and member-only. The general area has information on the club, special events and news, safety information, ride categories, and much more. We invite you to look around the site to learn more.
The Member Login area is set aside for members only. Access to this area requires a user name and password. The log-in information is member created when you apply for membership. The Members Only area is where the Ride Scheduling System is located, along with other member-specific documents. Contact Web Support if you have any difficulties accessing the members only section of the web site.
Ride News is a membership only communication system. It is used by ride leaders to post urgent messages about changes to planned rides - such as weather related cancellation or delays. Members are invited, and strongly recommended, to join this group on joining the club. The use of this system is monitored to ensure its purpose is not abused. If you are not a member of Ride News for some reason Contact Web Support
We recognize that people rather not be inundated with email, and we have provided options for members to manage the types of messages that you will receive from the club. The club has a standing policy not to provide its email list to any third party.
Members can change their email options on their profile in the Ride Scheduling System. Contact Web Support for assistance with changes options.
The club has a Sound Cyclists Facebook Page. It should be used to post general cycling communications, (many of which were previously sent through Ride News). There is also a member Sound Cyclists Swap Shop Page for offering used cycling related items.
Members may post messages and articles of cycling related topics that they want to share with other members. Examples are items of local news about cycling or cyclists, or regional rides. Members are encouraged to use this medium to join up with other members on non-club rides, or request information about club or other rides. Members should not use this medium for solicitations of any kind. The page is monitored and should not be used for inappropriate communications. Members who abuse the use of this page may lose their entitlement to post to this page.
