Membership Benefits

Ride Yourself Fit, Inc. offers members a number of unique benefits to assist in planning a ride outside of the regular RYF schedule.  Different routes for the bi-weekly rides are offered with lengths of 10, 15, 20, and 30 miles.  Off regular Saturday rides of 40+ miles and conditioning rides are also scheduled.  A family ride is also held on the first Sunday of each month starting at either 11 am or noon.  Wednesday evening rides of about 20 miles during the spring and summer months are provided for fun and training.  Routes range between 10 and 100 miles with varying degrees of difficulty, and climbing.  Training circuits are also available for members to increase cardio endurance and stamina. Walkers meet each Saturday and also for a few special events during the year.  The walking routes change and often include a stop for coffee or a light breakfast.  The starting locations also change to provide a variety of location around Redlands to enjoy.

Throughout the year, Ride Yourself Fit will hold special events and opportunities.  Discounts for the annual Holiday Party before Christmas, for the general meetings, for a variety of contests and opportunities, and special discounts for certain new clothing orders are available to members only.  Members have access to the full RYF website, showing all events, schedules and opportunities.

Members often are looking for interesting and fun routes to ride or walk during the week, and often ask how to obtain maps or route slips for regular rides and walks.  Several sections of the website are available exclusively to members.  A membership in Ride Yourself Fit opens over 450 bicycling routes for members, including links to maps on popular bicycle route websites such as Map My Ride and Ride with GPS, turn by turn route slips and even maps of routes with 3D capability on Google Earth.  Walking routes are also mapped in the same way. Another feature is an analysis section where members can review routes based on overall degree of difficulty from easy to extreme, total length of a ride or walk, and total amount of climbing along the route.  All are available exclusively to Ride Yourself Fit, Inc. members, to enhance your experience and promote Fun, Fitness and Fellowship.
