Our Leaders and Sweeps are vital to the enjoyable and safe conduct of rides. If you lead or sweep, either the entire ride or a section, join our Leader/Sweep List. Leaders and Sweeps on this list receive periodic Leader/Sweep updates as well as invitations to our Leader/Sweep training meetings.

63 leaders and sweeps met at the Eisenhower Recreation Center on 2.13.17 for training and discussion. The club thanks these leaders/sweeps for both attending the meeting and participating in the discussions. There are now a total of 97 persons on the leader/sweep list. By signing up for the Leader/Sweep list meeting, the club expects that you will lead or sweep rides as either the primary leader/sweep or as a section leader/sweep.
