What is the right ride for me?

   
At times, some riders join scheduled routes that may be beyond their physical abilities.  As a result, they struggle along the ride, making for a less enjoyable personal experience. 
Ride Yourself Fit has developed  a rating system for each ride.  This system considers length of ride as well as the amount of climbing, and rates the ride between simple to extreme as shown to the right.  Routes are also designated with lettered categories which define the general average speed expected by riders on the ride. 
The rating system and speed categories are all shown on the event calendar for each ride.  RYF encourages all members to review the ride and select the one that best suits everybody's personal riding skills and abilities.

RYF & WYF ADOPT PORTIONS OF ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL WEST

 
   
Ride Yourself Fit and Walk Yourself Fit have adopted a portion of the City's Orange Blossom Trail West, between Park Avenue and Nevada Street.

The Adopt-A-Trail program has been established for community and civic organizations, as well as private businesses to contribute towards the effort of maintaining beautiful and clean City owned trails in Redlands.  Redlands' Adopt-A-Trail program encourages community residents and organizations to adopt City owned trails and keep them weed and litter-free.  The adopted areas are to be cleaned every 4 weeks in an effort to maintain a healthy environment, and to produce feelings of pride in our beautiful City.  RYF/WYF has made a commitment to pick up litter and perform weed abatement on this section of the trail a minimum of once a month for a two-year period.  We will monitor conditions on this section of the trail and report problems to City staff members for follow up.

Volunteers are needed on an ongoing basis to help support this effort.  The time required to complete the required routine maintenance is about one hour or less per month.  Approximately 10 members per each cleanup are needed.

 
     
       

 
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.
