Don't let fido turn your ride - or the next person's into a tragedy.
Anytime - and everytime - you see a dog that is loose and in the roadway, please call the local sheriff's office/animal control officer to report the animal and its location.

Any size dog can cause a serious accident and injuries (to pedestrians, horse riders, motorcyclists, and drivers as well as to cyclists).

Dog owners are responsible under state, county and city laws for keeping their dogs properly restrained and out of public roadways. Owners may be sued for any damages resulting from negligence.

Look up county animal control telephone numbers and more information here.




SCHEDULE UPDATES:
  • A Wheelmen ride from SCHS was added for "Black Friday," Nov. 28th at 10:00, 54 miles, 4+ to Borden.

  • The Wheelmen ride on Dec. 6th should be for 40 (not 42) and 60 miles; still from the New Albany Best Western.

  • Print the latest schedules here for Nov. and Dec.

Stop by Clarksville Schwinn TODAY to pick yours up before they're all gone (they're just $62)!

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.

Download his May 3rd report here. (Note: This file contains color photos and several pages. It is a rather large file and may take a couple of minutes to download).




Looking for a fun Indiana Ride?

Bicycle Indiana's 2014 Ride Guide is now available - pick up a copy at Clarksville Schwinn or download a digital copy for your PC or mobile device here.
