New e-bike policy!

At our all-member club meeting on September 14, the club approved some revisions to the e-bike policy.

The updated e-bike policy (in summary form) is thus:

  • Class 1 (pedal-assist up to 20 mph) can go on all club group rides.
  • Class 2 (pedal-assist and throttle-assist up to 20 mph) can go on social-pace and steady-pace rides. 
  • Class 3 (pedal-assist up to 28 mph) can go on all club group rides.
  • (Note that class 2 e-bikes are not allowed on moderate, brisk, and strenuous rides.)
  • All e-bike riders shall follow all the customary rider courtesy and safety requirements expected of all riders, such as staying with the group (not riding far ahead or falling far behind) by maintaining the set pace.
  • Since state and local laws regulate where each class of e-bike can legally ride, all e-bike rider shall be responsible for ascertaining the legality of riding their e-bike on a club group ride (by reviewing the route ahead of time). If the route uses streets or trails where regulations prohibit the use of certain classes of e-bikes, it is the responsibility of the rider to comply with this requirement and leave the ride or depart from that portion of the route.
  • All e-bike riders shall be self-sufficient with their battery and its use and not rely upon others should they run out of juice. 

The full policy can be found on our E-bikes Policy page.

"Ask the Wrench"

Do you miss Dear Abby or Dr. Laura? Neither do we, 'cuz we've got something better!

Road Bike Wrench (aka RBW) cut his teeth by wrenching on bikes, new and vintage, for over 40 years. There's not a squeak or creak he can't track down and squash like a bad bug. Or so he claims. 

You can send your bike maintenance and equipment questions to Road Bike Wrench. You can ask him anything - simple or complex - from how much pressure should be in your tires, to whether you should go tubeless or not. If RBW deems your question worthy, he'll reply with a witty, irreverent, or truly useful answer (his choice), and it'll be published in Chainwheel Chatter for all to enjoy.

Ask your question!
