OutCycling is a member led organization. The club is comprised of multiple committees which work together to make the day to day operations of the club run smoothly. Committees are approximately 5 members in size and led by two elected co-chairs. The co-chairs call meetings for their committee as necessary and set the agendas and overall operation of the committee. Committee Chairperson is a six month commitment.
Below is a description of present committees:
Ride Committee - Endurance/Training Rides
Plan, review and recommend EnduranceTraining Rides, to engage riders interested in longer distances (approx 30+) and endurance training (i.e. Hump Day) activities.
Ride Committee - City Rides
