AABTS Ride Calendar Updates

Please note the following policy on Invitational Rides, for the purposes of AABTS Club Mileage Accumulation:
"Invitational rides sponsored by non-profit organizations, such as other cycling clubs or charitable organizations, can count for club mileage, as long as they appear in the ride calendar and an AABTS member is designated as ride leader.  

Also, commercial rides for profit (such as VBT or Backroads) may count for mileage credit and can be placed on the calendar, as long as
there is room and time for other AABTS members to join.
Notice of invitational rides must appear in plenty of time for other members to make arrangements to attend. Rides will not be placed on the ride calendar if it is not reasonable that others may register and get into the ride."

Winter Calendar Deletion: The Saturday morning Far West Quad County Ride out of Chelsea was put on the winter calendar by mistake, and will not take place. It will resume next spring. If anyone rode on Dec. 6 or 13, please submit ride sheets and their mileage will be honored.


The Taste of Ann Arbor No-Mile Ride will NOT be run this winter. The captain, Anne Ormand, feels it has run its course and thanks everyone who has attended over the past 12 years!
