Guest Speaker / Program:
In 2018, several of our members have needed medical/paramedic aid during our rides. One rider suffered a broken hip after skidding. One rider passed out at the coffee stop and another nearly did after a ride from dehydration . Another experienced a heart-attack on a ride. One plowed into yet another and they both needed medical aid. And one was hit by a car.   In several cases, fellow cyclists did not know how to properly respond to these emergencies. Do you?

In a panicked moment, can you accurately recall the proper breath-to-compression ratio for CPR? Basic first aid for bleeding ? Detecting signs and symptoms BEFORE they become a full-blown medical emergency? Knowing a few basics could save the life of your fellow club member OR your own life! Our club makes every effort to promote safety, but accidents and medical emergencies do happen. Let's be prepared. Come hear the Irvine Fire Department paramedics inform and educate us on basic aid for cyclists. 

Please spread the word to your ALL your cycling friends about this important meeting topic. Spouses are encouraged to attend! A little knowledge could help save a life.

See you (and your riding friends) this Thursday . Refreshments & snacks at 6:30.
No spandex (or lycra) required.

6:30 Social Time -  7:00 Presentation

Guest Speaker / Program:
Do you suffer from cycling-related sore necks or aching joints? Do you have questions about shoes? Have you gained or lost weight in recent years? As our bodies change , our riding is affected. Please bring your questions and concerns on Thursday night to learn from an expert how proper posture and position on your bike can reduce injuries and increase performance and enjoyment. 

Barrett Brauer,  a certified bike fitter , uses all the latest computer & video technology to troubleshoot and determine a proper fit in his lab. He is also a USA Certified Level II Coach , competitive road cyclist and triathlete. Barrett, whom you may already know through ARB Cyclery, is also a friend to many of us in BCI.

"No pain, no gain" is a popular cycling phrase, but proper bike fit can really avoid that!  We hope you will come join us on Thursday , June 14th at 6:45. Bring a friend!
