WWBC E-mail Lists

Western Wheelers has TWO e-mail lists. Both are open to the public:

“wwbc-RIDES is only for information about club rides/events  WW members can join this list to get updates about ride additions/changes/cancellations. Members who want only notice of certain information, such as "D rides only", "LDT info only", can alternately subscribe to the appropriate Discussion Forum Topic instead.

“wwbc”  is for those who are interested in discussions or receiving/exchanging messages about general biking topics.

Each list has a specific use – DO NOT POST YOUR MESSAGE TO BOTH LISTS!

  •  Carpool offers/requests for WW rides
  •  Ride reports/pictures of WW rides

Each list has a specific use – DO NOT POST YOUR MESSAGE TO BOTH LISTS!
