President's Day February 15, 2016
For some of you NMTS riders, President's Day is a day off. Join us on the flexible Monday ride at 10am at Alameda Open Space. We are offering a challenge for those that want to accept it, ride up La Luz road. For most of us, this will be the first time in 2016.
If you don't want to do the climb, join us anyway as the ride is a big loop that offers new route. See the link below for the exact route.
More on the Flexible Monday ride is found here.

Please note that the WWAM Plus Ride is cancelled for 3, 10, and 17 Feb as I will be out of town.
NMTS Safety Page
Because of the efforts of the NMTS Safety Committee under leader Dee Friesen, you see a new menu item on this home page, Bike Safety.
This link leads to a safety page that gives riders advice on riding in traffic and moving through intersections. The information on this page will change monthly.
There is a lot to learn from this page.
