SCBC May Featured Speaker

Dr. Christina Cernik M.D.

"We all enjoy many outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking,
skiing, and running in addition to cycling, exposing us to many
hours in the sun. What to do, what to watch for, and how to treat
skin issues is very important part to our lifestyle"
  John Schaeffer

Please plan to attend the May SCBC Membership meeting and
hear the latest in skin care and have those questions answered.

No out of pocket deductible is required.!!!!!!!

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Ride Altitude Gain Data Collection

You will need an altimeter cyclometer or a GPS with barometric altimeter and about 5 min. of time each ride.   We will be averaging all the data on each ride so recording data on the same ride two or more times is helpful!   The more data we collect, the more accurate the results!   Record the total Altitude Gain & any comments.   When you get at least ten rides recorded, give or send them to me.
