Special Events Planning Meeting to be held on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.
Join us at 1709 Wildwood Dr. in Henryville to discuss special events for the upcoming year. We will enjoy a "pitch-in" lunch first and then begin our meeting (and probably keep snacking!)
Note: In previous years, this has been known as the Slowspokes Planning Meeting. It is still primarily that, but everyone who would like to be involved in the planning of special events and rides for either schedule is encouraged to attend.
Please RSVP to 812-252-9371 or email@example.com by Friday, January 20th if you plan to attend.
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 whether 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.
Each member is able to receive his/her INDIVIDUAL ride log monthly via e-mail.
If you do not receive these e-mails, but would like to, please contact the SIW Statistician at SIWStatsTracker@outlook.com.
Check out some of our area's construction projects so you can avoid closed and/or dangerous roads.
If you have information about other road projects, please e-mail the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't let fido turn your ride - or the next person's - into a tragedy.
Anytime - and everytime - you encounter a dog that is loose and in the roadway, please call the local animal control officer/sheriff's office to report the animal and its location.
Be sure to check out some cool cycling-related pics from Tumblr that are posted towards the bottom of this page - they'll be updated on an on-going basis so check back often.
