Welcome to the Southern Indiana Wheelmen Bicycle Club! We've been riding the beautiful roads of Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington Counties (to name a few) since 1975. We hope to see YOU soon!

Use your best judgement when deciding wether or not to ride in winter conditions: Per our Club By-Laws, ARTICLE VII - RIDES; Section A - Mileage
2) Inclement weather. If the weather is too unpleasant at ride time, the Ride Captain is not obliged to ride, or even to show up. However, any Member who considers the weather acceptable may earn miles credit by completing the ride at his or her own risk as always, and advising the Statistician. If multiple riders complete such a ride, they should choose a substitute Ride Captain to submit names and mileage to the Statistician.
3) Rainout [Sleet/Snow]. If Members have shown up to participate in a Club ride, and by ride time it has begun to rain, any rider who chooses to abandon the ride will earn 10 miles credit for being there. Any rider who chooses to ride in the rain, at his or her own risk as always, and completes the ride, will earn scheduled miles credit.
4) Shortened ride. If weather conditions worsen during a ride, riders who abandon will get “shortened ride” credit. Further, regardless of weather, an illness, an accident, or irreparable damage to a bicycle may force a rider to abandon a ride. In any of these cases, the Member earns credit for 50% of the listed mileage if half or less of the ride is completed, or full listed mileage if more than half is completed.
If you have ANY questions about a ride, always feel free to call the ride captain.

Do you know where this inviting trail is?There is an opportunity "right in our own backyard" for a rail trail from New Albany to Clarksville. The trail would extend from Silver Street in New Albany all the way West to Clark Blvd. in Clarksville, just past I-65.
Club member Stephen Thill, who is an experienced mechanical engineer, has been meeting with local officials and assembled quite a bit information, photos, etc.
