Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club (PMBC)
The Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club is a non-profit social organization that leads regularly scheduled weekly bicycle rides and other special events for the benefit of its members. We promote and provide venues for safe and legal bicycling, primarily in the greater Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area.
Following the COVID-19 shutdown, the PMBC Board met on May 16, 2020 to discuss Governor Ducey’s decision to reopen Arizona's restaurants and other public facilities to decide what this means for PMBC. We have decided to follow his directives with regard to what our Club offers to its members and guests.
We encourage everyone to educate themselves on the risks involved by reading an article that we found to be very helpful, The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them. Following this, we are leaving it up to our Ride Leaders to decide whether they would like to lead group rides. Ride Leaders may or may not choose to include the option of dining at a restaurant and they may or may not choose to join in the dining fun, should it be offered.
No one should feel pressured to do anything that they don't feel is safe to do. The Club is not endorsing, nor is it discouraging, any policy with regard to the use of any public facilities by anyone. If your fellow riders choose of their own free will to have lunch inside a restaurant, that's OK. If you choose not to join them, that's your choice, which is also OK. You are responsible for your own safety when participating in Club activities.
Our Club's insurance policies only cover riders and ride leaders for rides that are conducted and organized by the Club for all club members. They do not cover, nor are they designed for, rides organized by individuals for a limited number of participants.
