Reforma del Paseo en Bicicleta #005 of 420: NEW DATE CHANGE!
MoM Ridaz X Corvidae
Welcome to the ride! If you don’t know anyone here, YOU SHOULD! This ride is a collaboration
between MoM Ridaz Bicycle Club (Mama) and
Corvidae Bicycle Club (Bird). This is not exactly for
beginners or freak bikes, but not a race, hardcore hustle, or smash ride. It is a No Drop Ride,
so as long
as you are not falling back to often, we will wait for you, and we always wait at the top of the big hills. Pace will
be adjusted depending
on the weather, attendees, and other factors. Expect to go at least 15-20 miles,
and more on the really nice days, if everyone is up to it. Rides
are every 1st and 3rd Friday until
otherwise stated. If you have not read the whole post before, PLEASE READ WHOLE POST (at least twice).
Please see next section for the specifics of each ride.

Rules Of The Ride
WHAT THIS RIDE PROMISES AND WHAT ITS ABOUT:
~ Meeting New
~ Doing Things that you normally wouldn\\\'t do
~ We have fun, explore, go
where we are and are not allowed, and going where no one knows.
~ It\\\'s not about \\\"catching a

homies and friends so we don\\\'t have to jack shit!

week, hour, whatever, and not stressing about the next day. It\\\'s about the moment and how that
moment can become an amazing memory. So what it’s 2 AM? We may not can buy a beer anymore but we can
go to the Pancake House and
get some pancakes for the ride back home, or we can go to the river and
fall asleep with the sunrise, or we can go to the top of . . .

CALLS TO LISTEN FOR:
These are some basic calls to make
yourself aware of. You will probably hear these on group rides.
RIDA BACK!!!!!!!---- This means to
stop and wait or else SLOW THE FUCK DOWN! We know you wanna smash but not everyone has your fancy
bike or the skills to go as fast as you. Let\\\'s keep it a tight group and prevent getting people lost. This
also helps us have less traffic issues.
KEEP IT TURTLE!!!---- Go SLOW!!! Like a turtle or snail
pace. No, Slower.
FLAAAATTTTTT (FLAT!!!!!!)---- This means a rider has a flat tire, or maybe
another mechanical issue. PLEASE STOP quickly, when it is the
safest and easiest to do so. We will be
back on the road shortly.
BOTTLENECK!!!---- The ride is being made to bunch up and squeeze
through a portion of the route. This means you will probably have to slow
down, and might have to make
room for other riders to get through the shrunk portion of the roadway or route.
STOPPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!---- Just stop is all you gotta do. that simple! (also listen for the Slowing! call).
SLOWWIIIINNGGG!!!!--- Slow down and watch out, you may need to stop soon, or there may be a
bottleneck or hazard ahead.
ROLLING!!!---- Means that we are back in the saddle and riding. We
call this sometimes to alert you that we are rolling an intersection where we
would usually stop (if it is
clear, also known as the ‘Idaho Stop’) or when we are leaving the meet spot or store stop.
CLEAR!!!!---- Means that there is no traffic about to cross in front of us, coming towards us, or in our pathway; It
is clear. Like ‘Rolling’ call, but
more specific to ‘Idaho Stop’ situations or limited visability.
CAR BACK!!!---- There is a car behind us, Move to the right so they can pass and we will not be impeding
traffic. Also listen for STAY RIGHT!!!
CAR RIGHT!!!!--- Watch out on your right hand
side, there is a dangerous rolling cage there.
CAR LEFT!!!!---- Same as car right, just that this car
is on the left.
DOOOOOOORRRRRR!!!!! (DOOR)!!!!!! Watch out for the car door that is opening up
ahead. Usually involves a parked car.
HOLE!!!!!---- Watch for holes around wherever you heard the
call from. If you are calling this, point towards the portion of the road or path with
the hole if safe to do so.
If you do go through the hole, you may regret it.
