With Covid cases on the rise again, we'd like to remind our members of the following:
Please do not participate in club rides if you are not feeling well.
If you test positive for Covid after you've been on a club ride, please send a message email@example.com the date and the ride you were on, so that the information can be disseminated.
Effective October 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022, only BCCC members and guest members vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus will be allowed to participate in club-sponsored rides and attend BCCC social events.
Those members who do not agree with this temporary policy change may request a full refund of their $25 membership fee or ask for a 4 month membership extension.
This temporary policy will remain in effect until January 31, 2022, at which time it will be reevaluated by the BCCC Board to determine if it needs to be continued or modified.
Questions or comments can be sent to the BCCC Board at the following address: Board@BCCClub.org.

It All Starts With A Clean Chain Part 3
By Robert Pacifici
OK, home stretch! Before you start the process of remounting the chain onto the bike, make sure it is well-lubricated with whatever product you plan on using on a going forward basis. I’ll do a future article on lubrication (get your mind out of the gutter!), but suffice it to say for the chain I’m a big fan of using a product called Squirt.
When it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, or otherwise unsafe riding conditions, it is club policy to cancel a club ride. Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
Tuesday Explorer Ride
Routes vary from week to week, usually 40 to 50 miles.
This is a great training ride, short sharp climbs and descents on the west side of PV with plenty of ocean views, 24 miles with 1800 feet of elevation. Mostly L2, L3+ pace with many regroup points, nobody gets left behind.
