Dan Resetar led a ride on 4/27/13. It was his first time as a ride leader. He made mistakes. Lots and lots of mistakes. However, they were not intentional mistakes so that's good. The mistakes though were so voluminous that the committee decided it would be in his best interests and the interests of the cycling community to suspend him from further ride leader responsibilities, pending remedial courses and a final review by the committee. I am pleased to announce that Dirty Dan has been reinstated as a ride leader with full bennies and compensation. Dan has promised that future rides will comply with standards such as:
1. It is ok to have a small portion of the route on an unpaved surface as long as said surface is ridable (see above image for example of unridable surface).
2. A food stop, if it is off the official route, must be communicated to the group so they know where the heck to leave the route.
3. Running a route through Lancaster is ok as long as it is direct but running a circuitous and winding route through Lancaster is a no-no.
4. It is not ok to shout the route is clockwise on the map and then lead the group in the counterclockwise direction. This can be confusing to map readers who are dropped from the group.
This is but some of the more glaring transgressions made by Dan but that is all behind us now. Welcome back Dan!
