What is the right ride for me?
At times, some riders join scheduled routes that may be beyond their physical abilities. As a result, they struggle along the ride, making for a less enjoyable personal experience.
Ride Yourself Fit has developed a rating system for each ride. This system considers length of ride as well as the amount of climbing, and rates the ride between simple to extreme as shown to the right. Routes are also designated with lettered categories which define the general average speed expected by riders on the ride.
The rating system and speed categories are all shown on the event calendar for each ride. RYF encourages all members to review the ride and select the one that best suits everybody's personal riding skills and abilities.
The 2017 Ride Yourself Fit Apparel
RYF Apparel Sizing Alert and Correction
It has come to my attention that the current RYF Apparel Order Sizing is off! Many of you have expressed concern that the sizing is not the same as in the past. I have reached out to Champion Systems and they have agreed to switch out any and all apparel that did not fit properly. They explained to me that in an effort to improve the material and overall product...the sizing and quality may have been compromised. If you feel that the sizing on your apparel is incorrect or that the quality on the bib shorts is not good, contact me immediately I noticed that the black on my bib is wearing through to the white all ready. I need to hear from you immediately PLEASE or I will not be able to accommodate you.
Thank you Alesandra
Items are to be ordered using the RYF 2017 Apparel Order Form and
returning it with payment (check or cash only) to Alesandra Wilson at the
In Your Best Interest Medical Clinic, 1201 Brookside Avenue, (909) 798-6524.

Doc and Ron meet Brett Waterman on their Tuesday Morning Ride
Doc and Ron met historic preservationist Brett Waterman, host of the DIY Network show "Restored" on their Tuesday morning ride. The show is currently renovating a house on Olive Avenue.
Brett's job might be described as historic house flipper. His goal is to restore 100-year-old properties of all architectural styles -- including Craftsman, Victorian, Spanish and mid-century modern -- to their original intentions. The character-filled homes took a wrong stylistic turn thanks to bad renovations or unsightly additions, and "Restored" sees Brett reveal the unrealized potential hidden beneath the neglect. "The character of these old homes just needs to be rediscovered," he says. "An older home is not supposed to look brand new but should look beautifully maintained."
Last season, the show filmed a number of restorations in Redlands and Riverside, and will continue filming here for Season 2. Brett loves Redlands and indicated that he is planning to move here.
Information on "Restored" can be found at:
With Vision a City Prospers - What makes Redlands a thriving City?
Here's an answer from the 2017 State of the City luncheon recently held.
Ride Yourself Fit is pleased to be a part of this community and
we thank the City of Redlands for their continued support of
bicycling and healthy living in Redlands.

RYF "Orange Blossom Trail" Clean-up Crew...Well Done!
RYF & WYF ADOPT PORTIONS OF ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL WEST
Ride Yourself Fit and Walk Yourself Fit have adopted a portion of the City's Orange Blossom Trail West, between Park Avenue and Nevada Street.
The Adopt-A-Trail program has been established for community and civic organizations, as well as private businesses to contribute towards the effort of maintaining beautiful and clean City owned trails in Redlands. Redlands' Adopt-A-Trail program encourages community residents and organizations to adopt City owned trails and keep them weed and litter-free. The adopted areas are to be cleaned every 4 weeks in an effort to maintain a healthy environment, and to produce feelings of pride in our beautiful City. RYF/WYF has made a commitment to pick up litter and perform weed abatement on this section of the trail a minimum of once a month for a two-year period. We will monitor conditions on this section of the trail and report problems to City staff members for follow up.
Volunteers are needed on an ongoing basis to help support this effort. The time required to complete the required routine maintenance is about one hour or less per month. Approximately 10 members per each cleanup are needed.

Traffic Safety Coalition launches "I GIVE 3 FT" safety campaign.
California’s new bike-passing law takes effect Tuesday, Sept. 16 and is designed to reduce car-versus-bicycle crashes. It also provides a way for law enforcement to enforce safe passing.
When the new law takes effect, violators will face a $35 base fine, ($233 when penalty assessments are added). If there is a collision, the base fine goes up
to $220 ($959 with assessments.) Where a violation results in a collision that injures a bicyclist, the law provides a way for law enforcement to cite the driver for unsafe passing. Bicyclists are still urged to use caution at all times while riding on any roadway with or without bike lanes.
