    It's March, and even though Mother Nature hasn't been too kind to us this Spring (once again), if you haven't already done so, it's time to renew your club membership.

    Benefits of membership include:

    - Riding with other experienced cyclists
    - Learning new routes in our area
    - Cycling safety
    - Cycling skills and techniques
    - On-road repairs
    - At-home bike maintenance

    To renew -- or if you're new to the club and wish to join -- click the 'Join Us' link on the menu bar.

    First, select your membership level:

    - Family Membership - $30
    - Individual Membership - $25.

    NOTE: The additional cost for Family Memberships is to cover the additional cost for bike club insurance.

    Then enter your personal information:

    - First Name
    - Last Name
    - Mobile Phone
    - Land Line (optional)
    - Street Address
    - City
    - State
    - Zip

    You'll also need to agree to the WJW Liability Waiver. Please click on the link before clicking the check box that you agree to the waiver. (The liability waiver is unchanged from previous years.)

    Next, select your payment method. You can make your secure payment online using a credit card, or you can pay offline by mailing a check to the club. If you pay by credit card, you'll be able to access the 'member only' portions of the website immediately once you complete the process. If you opt to pay by check, you won't be able to access the 'member only' portions until your check is received.

    Once your payment is made, you will be sent an email containing a temporary password. Log in by clicking the avatar in the upper right corner of the webpage. Enter your email address and temporary password and click 'Log In'. You should change your temporary password with a permanent one of your preference. If you ever forget your password, there is a process where you can reset your password by clicking the 'Forgot Password' link.

    You're in control of your own profile on the website. From your profile, you can opt-out of receiving club emails, or opt-in in case you accidentally clicked a link to not receive club emails. You can also control the amount of data you want to share with other club members.

    From your profile page you can also create and print your own membership ID card.

    Any profile information you enter is only visible to other club members, and is not accessible by non-members.

    Looking forward to seeing you out on the road.

    Welcome to the new website for the Western Jersey Wheelmen!

    The new website is being hosted by Wild Apricot. (Not sure how or why they came up with that name.)  But after looking at a number of platforms, this seemed to fit our needs the best. 

    We have now migrated our domain name -- bikewjw.org -- to point to this website. 

    If you have any problems logging in, send an email to mailto:info@bikewjw.org.

    If you haven't yet renewed your membership for the year, or if you're new to the club and wish to join, click the 'Join Us' link on the menu bar.  

    Select your membership level:
    - Family Membership - $30
    - Individual Membership - $25.
    NOTE: The additional cost for Family Memberships is to cover the additional cost for bike club insurance. 

    You can make your secure payment online using a credit card, or you can pay offline by mailing a check to the club.  If you pay by credit card, you'll be able to access the 'member only' portions of the website immediately once you complete the process.  If you opt to pay by check, you won't be able to access the 'member only' portions until your check is received.

    Once your payment is made, create your profile by first entering your email address, and then on the following page enter:
    - First Name
    - Last Name
    - Mobile Phone
    - Land Line (optional)
    - Address
    - City
    - State
    - Zip

    You'll also need to agree to the WJW Liability Waiver.  Please click on the link before clicking the check box that you agree to the waiver.  (The liability waiver is unchanged from previous years.)

    Cooler weather means your body needs a little more time to adjust to riding. To get your muscles ready, do a warmup loop near your home. If you’re the one making the route, loop by your house or car early in the ride so you can shed any layers that seemed like a good idea before you started pedaling. If not, gear up with easy-to-shed layers such as light jackets or vests, arm or knee warmers.

    You might also enjoy feeling faster. During the summer months, the heat can sap strength and make intervals feel a lot harder because your body is under more load and struggling to cool itself. The brisk fall weather means that you will probably see improvements in your power and even a slightly lowered heart rate and perceived exertion. This is the perfect time to keep your base strong before the winter.

    Got Gear?

    The key with transition-season gear is to add pieces that are lightweight and removable to your current summer kit instead of switching out your whole summer wardrobe for winter gear. Adding accessories like arm warmers, which you can easily peel off mid-ride and stash in a pocket, means that whether the day warms up or the clouds roll in, you’re prepared. Try these must-haves:

    • Arm Warmers
    • Knee Covers
    • Toe Covers
    • Vest
    • Pocket Rain Jacket

    Don't forget hydration!

    When it’s not super hot out, it feels less crucial to reach for your water bottle. But that’s a huge mistake. Make sure you’re drinking around one bottle per hour even if you don’t feel as thirsty as you did when it was 100 degrees out, you still need to hydrate. If it’s really cold, you can even start your ride with warm or hot water.

    Ride smart this Autumn, but get out and ride!
