BCC E-mail Lists
Bonneville Cycle Club has an emailing list, called Ride Calendar.
The Ride Calendar email list is used to discuss and/or broadcast news of rides, events, and announcements to the Bonneville Cycling Club. This is how ride leaders can cancel rides, how the BCC Road Captain makes announcemnets, or how anyone who subscribes to the list can make a comment or pass along a message.
What is an E-mail List?
An E-mail list is an electronic device that enables you to send e-mail to a group of people by typing in one address instead of the address of everyone in the group (talk about a time saver). It is a convenient way to send e-mail to others who share a common interest – in our case the interest in bicycling. It is a tool for the exchange of ideas and information about cycling and cycling related activities.
How does it work?
You send an email message to the mailing list and your message is then forwarded to everyone who is a member of the list.
How do I become a member of the list?
To sign up for the Ride Calender email list click the subscribe button at the top or bottom of this page. You will be forwarded to another page hosted by Xmission.com. Once there, enter your email address, your name and a password. Be sure to remember your password as you may want to use it to edit your preferences and unsubscribe to the list later. After you have done this click the subscribe button. An email will then be sent to the email address you used to subscribe. YOU NEED TO RESPOND TO THAT EMAIL to confirm that you do indeed wish to subscribe to the Ride Calender email list. Once you have confirmed your subscription to the Ride Calender email list you will begin recieving emails as people post them to the Ride Calender email list.
How do I unsubscribe from the list, edit my settings, or retrieve my password?
To unsubscribe from the list click the Unsubscribe button at the top or bottom of this page, go the the bottom of the page that brings up, enter your email address, and click the Unsubscribe button there. You can edit your account settings or retrieve a forgotten password using the Change Passwords Etc button at the top or bottom of this page.

Why would I want to use the list?

- Ask the members where to buy that exotic bike tool that you need to repair your antique bike
