Your help is needed to count the number of cyclists leaving and departing from Harrisburg in the mornings and evenings on several different days. These counts are important for several reasons.
1. They establish baseline verification that cyclists do use roads to get to and from Harrisburg.
2. They help advocates measure the number of cyclists that are using the roads so comparisons can be made from year to year.
3. They help justify requests for funding to improve roads to keep cyclists safer.

Once again the HBC will be holding Ride Leader Training Socials. The OPS Committee along with the Ride and Ride Leadership Committee is working to improve our HBC rides and events. Over the years our rides have changed coordinators, leaders and riders which also changes the way they are run. In order to keep the quality, safety and enjoyment in our rides along with consistency we ask that all HBC leaders plan on attending a Ride Leader Training Social. It is our ride leaders that set the tone, safety and enjoyment on each HBC ride.
