Lead a Ride

We would like to encourage everyone in the club to lead a ride (or a walk).  All you need to do is decide on a time and date, a start point and then contact the Ride Coordinator who will add it to the club calendar. You should see your ride listed the next time the weekly "Upcoming Events" email comes out.  It is also a good idea to include details like how long and how hilly the ride will be.

If you want to lead a ride but don't have any ideas where to ride, check the Ride Maps page.  Or, send an email to the club email list at portlandtandemclub@googlegroups.com and ask for ride ideas.

It isn't necessary to create a map for the ride.  However, if you do and you use  RIDE WITH GPS to create the map, let us know so we can make a printable version and add it our list of club rides. 

Ride leaders need to bring copies of the following documents to the ride:

PTC-LAB Ride Waiver -   The PTC is a member of the League of American Bicyclists (LAB).  Use this waiver from the LAB for all rides and walks.

Incident Report  Minor Ride Waiver  - Ride Leaders should also bring copies of the LAB Minor Ride Waiver and the Incident Report.

Note to participants:  Our ride insurance is provided through the League of American Bicyclist.  Covered activities include recreational bicycle rides that  involve LAB club members and first-time invited guests.  If you are a guest and would like to join us for more than one event, we ask you to please join our club.  Thank you.
