Welcome to the C4 membership sign up page.
C4 organizes many club rides: The Thursday Rides, the C4 Winter Base Ride Series (C4 WBR), the Farther Afield Ride Series (C4 FA) and the Classic Hills ‘n Lakes Rides (on Tuesdays). And additionally, this year: The Serrano Volunteer Ride and the Guerrilla Ride.
C4 has non-riding social events too: Jack's Pool Party, the Tour de France Party, and the Christmas Party. AND C4 has non-riding community service events: volunteering at the Serrano Century Ride, the Healthy Newton Omnium, & the Elks-Aidmore Cyclocross Race. These three cycling events raise money and give back to our community. Other community service events include the Christmas Parade and the Christmas Bike Build.
C4 is closely affiliated with our two local bicycle advocacy organizations and one local wellness organization. C4’s members contribute their time, treasure and talent to make Rockdale, Walton and Newton counties more accessible and safer for cycling through these organizations. Rockdale County is served by the Conyers-Rockdale Bike and Trail Coalition, CRBTC: https://www.facebook.com/CRBTC/. Newton County is served by Newton Trails: http://www.newtontrails.org/. Walton County is served by Walton Wellness’ Project Road Share: https://waltonwellness.org.
From time to time C4 kits are available for purchase by our club members. Also, a 15% discount on most parts is offered at our local bike shop partner, C-Town Bikes.
Like riders in all bike clubs, C4 riders like being part of a cohesive, identifiable, structured community. Our leadership in C4 is taking slow deliberate steps to create an even better bike club. In 2009 we became a registered 501(c)(3) entity with the State of Georgia. We have bylaws and a functioning board of directors that now includes: President Kim Degonia, (acting) Secretary Shawn Bilak, Treasurer Eddie Shirey and Directors: Jack Dalton, Jim Behning, Paul Jones, Mike Peoples, Dominic & Rena Frascella, Richard & Carol Cherry, the C Town Manager, and Tim Walden.
At the winter board meeting our quorum board agreed, unanimously, that it’s time to firm up what it means to be a member of C4; this driven in no small part by the decision to incur the expense of a more functional C4 online presence, charitable activities and certainly other expenses as time goes by. To keep the checkbook balanced, for the first time, membership in C4 will include yearly dues. As a service organization, this decision is about how we best serve our communities, rather than about direct individual benefits. Other factors that affected the decision to “firm up” membership were:
(1) Increasing our inclusivity (so that new riders can clearly self-identify as club members)
(2) Making ourselves more recognizable when viewed from the outside by our communities.
We now have a dizzying array of six online presences:
(1) the C4 Facebook Group is for our usual bike-related banter (open to all). https://www.facebook.com/groups/466334936719276/
(2) the C4 Facebook Page is for public consumption. https://www.facebook.com/CovingtonConyersCyclingClub/
(3) the C4 Website is our public “portal”. http://www.c4cycling.com/
(4) the C4 Strava Page is for our hammerheads. https://www.strava.com/clubs/Covington-Conyers-Cycling-Club
(5) the C4 BikeSignUp Page is our money managing site (go here to join C4): https://www.bikesignup.com/Club/GA/Conyers/CovingtonConyersCyclingClub

Our new C4 Members’ Website is hosted by RidewithGPS and includes these features:
--Messages. This is our one forum to stay in touch on any topic, bike related, that might be of interest to club members. This is the one place that important notifications will be posted, such as ride cancellations, modifications, recaps and reminders of important events. Members may use “settings” to automatically receive new posts from the forum into their personal email. Only members can post to the forum.
--Events. This is our one calendar, a real calendar, where all events, riding and non-riding, are posted and are RSVP’able. It is easy to export (not sync) this calendar to your personal calendar using the “Export Events” link at the bottom of the calendar. Members will see ALL club events; visitors will see only selected events.
--Route Library. This is our one repository of the C4 ride routes. Even with your free RidewithGPS account, your C4 club account allows you to use advanced RidewithGPS features when using these C4 ride routes. Members will see ALL club routes; visitors will see only selected routes.
