Impromptu RidesAny Western Wheelers club member may propose an Impromptu Ride.
How to list an impromptu
The Ride Listing Assistant in the Members Only menu at right (accessible only when you’re logged in) helps you compose a complete and correctly formatted ride description, as well as relieving you from having to remember where to send it. Or, if you are really, really sure you know how to compose a correct AND complete ride description, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Since ride descriptions lacking essential information cannot go in the Ride Calendar, forgetting to include necessary details adds delay to posting a ride until the missing information is filled in. Rides posted only to the wwbc email list will not be listed on the Ride Calendar nor receive ride credit.
Reasonable lead time
Rides submitted by 8 PM, 2 calendar days before the ride (e.g., 8 PM Thursday for a Saturday ride) will be listed on the Ride Calendar provided all essential information is included and the formatting is consistent with Ride Calendar entries. Missing information and/or formatting requiring substantial rework delays adding your ride to the Ride Calendar. Rides submitted closer to the ride date may or may not make it onto the Ride Calendar as the process cannot be automated and requires a human being to update the Ride Calendar. The Statistician is only required to count rides that are included in the Ride Calendar.
Ride sign-up sheetThe ride leader brings an official sign-up sheet (download the PDF form) to the ride start. Members print their name on it to receive ride credit (and cell number, in case of emergency). Guests sign and print their name and date to accept our Release and Waiver as a condition of their participation. Send the completed form to the statistician by the end of the month so that members will be properly credited with their rides in the monthly statistics reports.
