SCU Ride Calendar
NOTE: During the transition to Meetup this page will show only the recurring rides on the SCU calendar. From the first week of April to the last week of September choose from rides with different ride leaders at varying speeds, distances, and abilities based on members present, weather, and sunset times. Recurring ride start times and speeds, and details for all SCU rides can now be found on the SCU Meetup Calendar. See Meetings/Social Events for non-riding activities.

Ride leaders can schedule rides in Meetup. Detailed instructions for Meetup are available.
As part of our transition to the SCU Meetup Calendar, we will be automatically forwarding announcements of new Meetups to the SCU Yahoo list. Unfortunately, change and cancellation notices may or may not be automatically forwarded depending on the details of the ride leader's choices when making a change or cancellation. You are encouraged to sign up on the SCU Meetup Page, where you can not only see upcoming rides, but also tailor all email notifications to your specific needs. Ultimately the SCU Yahoo list will be migrated to the Meetup discussion board/email list to provide 'one-stop shopping' for all club ride information.
Use the SCU Ride Until Sunset Chart to look up sunset times and to determine riding distances for start times of 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30 PM for speeds of 10 to 20 MPH.
Free mileage logs are available.
Make sure your bike is in good working order. Pump up the tires. Bring essentials: 2 spare tubes, pump, patch kit, tire levers, 2 water bottles, ID, cash, medical insurance card.
Before you need them on the road, verify that your spare tubes are the correct size for your tires, and that the tubes and pump are compatible with the valve type (Presta or Schrader) for your wheels. Deep "Aero" and "semi-aero" profile wheels require tubes with long-stem Presta valves.

Be conservative. Choose a ride easier and shorter than you think you can ultimately handle. You won't enjoy struggling to keep up with a ride that's too fast for you, nor will the group enjoy waiting for you. It's a good idea to contact the group leader ahead of time on your first ride and to introduce yourself when signing in at the start.
