Cygolite® Nite Riding Demo & Raffle

Have you ever wanted to try riding at night, but are reluctant to invest in lighting? Come to this special event and learn what you need to know to safely ride your bike during cool evenings & nights, instead of the heat of the day. 

Club Secretary Bob McHenry will present a short talk about bicycle lighting and night time riding safety.  Cygolite, an Orange County bicycle lighting systems manufacturer and a BCI club sponsor, will present an overview of their product line & provide loaners to demonstrate their products. Then we’ll mount lighting on members’ bikes, and we will do a no-drop fun ride of about 20 miles at an easy pace with a dinner stop.  

Cygolite has generously offered to raffle some lighting at the end of this ride!  
(You need to be a current BCI member to participate in the raffle.)

Route Slip

Cygolite can outfit 20 riders with lights to try out night riding.  No sales pitch or direct sales at this event, just good information and night time riding fun.  If you already have lighting for your bicycle, you are welcome & encouraged to participate in these events too.  A light jacket will help when we stop for dinner & if the evening is cool. 
Questions about this ride:  email Bob at secretary@bikeirvine.org

Note:  The CVC requires minimal reflective and light. If your shoes or pedals do not have reflectors, purchase an inexpensive set of reflective ankle straps for the event.  Available at bicycle shops for $5-10 per pair.  Daiso has really cheap ones for $1.50.  Wheel reflectors, or reflective side-wall tires are also legally required; a couple of flags of reflective tape on your spokes can work for a short term reflective solution. A red rear reflector likely came on your bike; a bit of red rear reflective tape will do to make you legal. California Vehicle Code requirements, and other recommendations and suggestions for riding safely at night will be discussed at the event.

            2nd Friday Get Together

            For years BCI members have gathered for dinner & socializing on the 2nd Friday of the month at a food court with several options and a common dining area where we can gather.  
            Just for "Good Luck" we are trying a new location this month.  
            This is a no-host gathering so no guarantee who will be there !   More

            Guest Speaker / Program: JERSEYS!

            Our Jersey Design Committee will present the new BCI Kit and we will have size fittings on hand for our new kit from JLVelo. https://www.facebook.com/JLVelo

            The on-line 'store' will open for just 10 days or so to get your orders in, and getting the right size may matter - so come ready to try on the sizing samples and compare the two quality levels available in Jerseys, Shorts and Bibs!  If you can not attend the meeting but want to try on sizes & check out the quality, you can stop by their office any day.

            While waiting to fit, BCI members are invited to bring in 1 or 2 jersey & tell the group about that particular event or ride and why it holds special memories for you ( sort of an open mic 'TED talk'! )

            2017 Bib.jpg

            We also have invited Jim Friebert to set up his collection of collectable & recycled jerseys - he may want to purchase or swap an old one from your closet - see https://www.facebook.com/myemailsnotat/

            or all gently worn & clean jerseys will be collected for a donation to the Bicycle Tree in Santa Ana... https://www.facebook.com/thebicycletree/

            Disclaimer: The Irvine Ranch Water District neither supports nor endorses the cause nor activities or organizations which use the District's meeting rooms that are made available as a public service.

            This class is for adults - but re-experience the joy!

            Our “NewB” rides are geared for new riders, riders with some experience, and riders who have never ridden in a club atmosphere. We will do a modified version of the scheduled Saturday short ride, (check bikeirvine.org for Saturday Ride schedule) adding as much off-street bike path as available...

            No registration & FREE – but do email Bill@BikeIrvine.org so he has an idea of how many are coming! BCI Members who are willing to coach & role model good bicycle driving are welcome to help out… Cycle of Safety members are especially welcome!
