My church has a senior's group entitled "XYZ" (has to be the world's most awful senior group name, IMHO).
Typically, they get in a van and go somewhere, eat and come back! Boorriinngg!
So, I volunteered to lead the group in alternating weekly bicycle rides and walks.
We are blessed with multiple walking and bicycling trails.
So far, I have:
1. Verified church liability coverage for this sort of activity, and have a letter saying so from the insurance company.
2. Developed a waiver of liability to protect, namely, myself.
3. Ordered a bunch of "Colorado Bicycling Manuals" - free from CDOT, 80 pages, covering EVERYTHING.
4. Required helmets of all riders.
We will be starting in late March.
So far, response has been good. Many folks have stated that they, too, did not like riding in vans to places, and, instead would like exercise.
I plan to start EASY - 1.5 mile walk, then about a 7-8 mile bike ride the next week and go from there.
Any other suggestions or ideas?
