RYF starting times are changing
with the seasonal time and weather changes.
 Check the Event Calendar for specific starting times on each ride or program as they are different.
The City of Redlands is currently resurfacing a number of streets throughout the southern portions of the city, including portions of San Mateo Street, Olive Avenue, Fern Avenue, Cypress Avenue, and Terracina Blvd.  These projects may result in temporary street closures and dirt roadways for a short period of time.  Rides and routes programmed may be diverted around these streets as necessary, without changes being made to route slips and maps.

 Ride & Walk Yourself Fit Annual Scavenger Hunt
 It's time to start getting your teams together for the 2nd Annual Scavenger Hunt Walk and the 4th Annual Scavenger Hunt Ride. There are all new clues to solve and locations to find.

Thank you to all that participated in The Plain Wrap Ride 2015...The Charity Ride
that Supports & Promotes Inland Empire Cycling!

 North Redland Ride...Fun, Fitness & Fellowship!

Thank you to all the volunteers and the RYF Family that made the
"6th Annual Ride Yourself Fit Health and Bike Safety Expo"
a success!  And here is one of the many reasons why:
Our housekeeper's 10 year-old daughter learned to ride a bike awhile ago, but during one of her rides she fell and broke her tibia. 
Ever since, she has been afraid of riding  ...  that is until she attended the Expo last weekend. 
RYF volunteers worked with her to overcome her fears.  They worked wonders!  
Her parents said they couldn't get her off the loaner bike she borrowed.  She kept riding and riding around the course. 
She was so excited to be riding again, but absolutely ecstatic when she won a bike!

Protect your bike investment! We all love our bikes and value the great things they provide such as better health, time with friends, and discovering new places. If your bike disappeared or was severely damaged, it might cost quite a bit to get you back on the road. There are any number of circumstances in which an existing home and/or auto insurance policies won’t cover the damage to or loss of a bike – and this comes as a lousy surprise if it happens to you! Now, you can eliminate that worry with a bike insurance policy. Joe would be happy to work up a quote for you, and it is as simple as completing a fill-able application posted here then emailing it to him.   Joe will return a quote to you, usually within 24 hours. You’re also welcome to call Joe with questions or to complete an application over the phone.

Traffic Safety Coalition launches "I GIVE 3 FT" safety campaign.
California’s new bike-passing law takes effect Tuesday, Sept. 16 and is designed to reduce car-versus-bicycle crashes.  It also provides a way for law enforcement to enforce safe passing.
When the new law takes effect, violators will face a $35 base fine, ($233 when penalty assessments are added). If there is a collision, the base fine goes up
to $220 ($959 with assessments.) Where a violation results in a collision that injures a bicyclist, the law provides a way for law enforcement to cite the driver for unsafe passing.  Bicyclists are still urged to use caution at all times while riding on any roadway with or without bike lanes.

See the "3 Feet Please" Facebook page
at 3 Feet Please for more information.

The RYF water bottles and T shirts are available for purchase.   They are at the IYBI clinic and will be available at the regular RYF rides. 
Get yours while they last!

RYF has introducing a new program for our regular bi-weekly Saturday rides.  The 10 mile routes are orientation rides lead by Dr. Steve Wilson. These orientation rides are open to all riders who wish to ride a slow, easy pace, those who are all new and or inexperienced riders, those who have new bikes that are not familiar with shifting or any other operation of the bike, those wishing to learn group and street riding skills, bicycling etiquette, and those who are starting a conditioning program.  All riders are welcome no matter what type of bike or riding gear that have.  Helmets are mandatory for all riders.  For those more experienced riders who wish to ride a shorter route at a social/touring pace, a 15+ route has been added to each of our bi-weekly rides. 

That's right people, a bike kitchen in the IE. For those of you that don't know what a bike kitchen is:  The Redlands Bike BBQ (Kitchen) is a space where you can learn to work on your own bike. It is entirely FREE, organized by volunteers and meant to help encourage sharing cycling related knowledge, skills, and tools between people in the community.

We can be found at our permanent space behind Augies Coffee Shop (off Redlands Blvd.) and weekly at the Redlands Market Night (near Ed Hales Park). We are open Tues-Thurs 6-8pm and Sat 12-3pm.

Donations are always welcomed. We are looking for anything bike related.
