There has been some discussion (and possibly confusion) lately about our ride classifications, as well as the responsibilities of both the ride leaders and the ride participants when on a club ride. First on the subject of ride classifications – we define them as:

The November General Membership Meeting originated live from Conte's in Newtown on Wednesday, November 11th at 7 PM.
Fran Lenahan told us about their personalized bike fit system called Retül™ Bike Fit. This is a data-driven system that takes your measurements and utilizing 2D and 3D motion capture data matches you to the correct frame and accessory sizes. It also identifies trouble spots in your riding geometry and suggests fit adjustments to ease discomfort and increase efficiency.
NOTE: Due to a technical issue, the audio in the first few minutes of the video is not optimal. However, it greatly improves at about minute four.
This was a very informative and interesting session! Thank you Fran!
