Please download and fill out the appropriate form and bring it with you to the event:
Adult Medical Form 2014
Minor Medical Form 2014
*Note regarding Tetanus:  Tetanus, sometimes called Lockjaw, is a rare disease caused by bacteria.  The toxin produced by the bacteria affects the function of the nerves and can lead to severe muscle spasms in the abdomen, neck, stomach, and extremities.  The bacteria that cause tetanus can be found in soil, manure, or dust.  It is fatal in 20% - 30% of cases.  If you have had a Tetanus shot within the past 10 years, please put the date on the form.  If not, please contact your doctor to bring your immunizations up to date.  If you can’t remember, you probably need a shot (again check with your doctor).  Getting this disease is no fun and a simple shot can help prevent this disease.

Be sure to wear a helmet.  Please send Tom Nelson an .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you are interested or planning to ride.  Tom is also looking for additional ride leaders so we can have various sub groups based on peoples cycling experience, goals and current levels of fitness.

Note:  If we have rain we will cancel and plan to meet next time.
