John Wente leads the FCR ride 3 of 4 weekends of each month. John will be having knee surgery December 3 and will not be able to lead the ride for several months (possibly for the rest of the season). The starting points for the rides John leads are SW 119th & May Ave (1st Saturday), 4th & Elm in Yukon (2nd Saturday) and NW 122nd & Rockwell (3rd Saturday). There are established routes for each of these locations and John will provide maps or cue sheets for the ride leaders.
You must be a current member of OBS to be a ride leader and you must show up each time you are to lead or find a substitute. Other than that, there’s not a lot to it (click here for OBS ride leader guidelines). If you are willing to give back to OBS by leading one of these rides until April, or until John is able to resume his duties, please contact John at 354-2301 (home), 954-4581 (work) or email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: The FCR is a moderate to slow paced ride (average speed about 12-13 mph). Please keep this in mind if you volunteer. We need to keep the ride at this pace.
