Your Club needs you -> Club Officers Required
SLB Cycling Club is an employee, employee family and friends cycling club. It requires officers to hold annual positions to manage and run the club.
Due to a number of people retiring and others moving away from Houston the club is currently looking to fill a few key officer positions. These should be current or past SLB employees. Please talk to one of the current or old officers to discuss what these positions entail.
RIDER SAFETY TRAINING
Learn how to ride on public roads, in groups. SCC normally provides Group Rider Safety (GRS) training classes with certified trainers. Due to Covid these cannot be held in person.
This year we are requesting all new riders and GRS renewal to follow the MS150 recommended online training videos and online test provided by The League of American Bicyclists. SMART CYCLING LEARNING CENTER
All SCC club riders must complete this class once every 3 years. Check your GRS Expiry date in the Directory. Submit successful online certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org to update your GRS Expiry date
To enjoy your rides its essential to maintain your bike. There are many basic tasks that you should perform at home after each ride. I know you want to sit on the couch after a hard ride but cleaning and greasing your bike immediately after a ride will save a lot of deterioration.
There are other tasks that you may want to leave to the bike mechanic at your local bike shop.
ParkTool videos cover a lot of topics, so you may actually be able to do more than you thought.
