Club Founder Bill Sellin and Irvine Police Sergeant Troy Gielish - (who is active with the City's Safe Routes to School program teaching middle school students about safe bicycling, and an avid bicyclist himself) will tackle the California Vehicle Code, and local Irvine ordinances, that are important for understanding the rules of the road. We will discuss the common and obscure application of the CVC to our being in traffic, and reveal the safest and riskiest behaviors bicyclists demonstrate.

7 daysWhat makes Spokane, WA the ideal location for our 2015 cycling, hiking and fun adventure?

Here's what Visit Spokane has to say, "A vibrant city, a roaring river, a gateway to the American west. Since its first days as a rail hub, Spokane has stood as a destination city immersed in natural beauty. Book a whitewater adventure, bike the beautiful Centennial Trail or hike through countless nature preserves. But it's not just about the outdoors! Taste Washington's renowned grapes and hops at any number of local wineries and craft breweries."

As a fellow cyclist, here's what I think will impress you... Spokane's natural beauty and the broad valley where it resides. The many dedicated bicycle and hiking trails adjacent to the hotel. A 2-state bicycle tour which includes beautiful Coeur d'Alene, Idaho as one of our many destinations. Enough after-ride activities to make you do a happy dance. Plus, you can buy this terrific jersey to remember the trip by.

Follow the link below for more information.

We'd love to have you and your friends join us on this outstanding 7 day bicycling adventure funding the good works being done by Big Brothers Big Sisters OC.
