BIKES Club Polls

BIKES Poll #12 McClinchy Mile Souvenir is active from 25 September to 10 October 2018 to ask your preference for a 2019 McClinchy Mile souvenir for those who register to ride early enough and for BIKES Club members who support the McClinchy Mile. A follow-up poll is likely if there are other suggestions.

BIKES Poll #11 Club Jerseys is active from 20 September to 4 October 2018 to ask you what you want regarding new BIKES Club jerseys.

Four separate polls initiated on August 22nd have closed. 

  • Poll #7 Social Pace Rides
  • Poll #8 Steady Pace Rides
  • Poll #9 Moderate Pace Rides
  • Poll #10 Brisk Pace Rides

Polls 1 - 6 provided results for the club overall for all pace groups. Polls 7 - 10 provide results specific to each pace with the same questions for all four polls.

Results of closed BIKES Club Polls are available under the "Members-only" tab, then select "BIKES Polls 2018" to find .pdf copies of the general description and results.

These polls are intended to help ride leaders and other BIKES members understand better what the club members prefer regarding bikes rides. Your responses to these polls will help shape the future of the BIKES Club.
