Please go to the http://www.tampadivaangels.com/handsignals.htm to learn the hand signals we
use on the road.

Safety News: Watch car tires when stopped at traffic lights, make sure they are not angled
towards you because if they were rear-ended, they would travel in the direction of the tires. Make
sure you take care of yourself and you ride safe. We would like to have a parking lot “exercise”
every couple months just to “practice” the safety turns & quick stops and maneuvers. We have
some videos to view “ride like a pro III” and “mean streets” These are wonderful advance riding
videos on items that everyone needs to keep fresh & alert…..

Mentor Program: We need seasoned riders to “mentor” new riders and get them more
comfortable riding to speed & highways. Make sure you challenge the new people so when we go
on a group ride, they are not afraid to “throttle up” and riding highways.

Activities Director News:
       Mystery Ride cancelled for April due to “Big Brother/Big Sister” bowling;

          Impromptu Ride: Sunday April 13th -- Beach Crawl Meet at Quaker Steak @ 11am We
          will run down the beach from the lube. Open for all to attend, you can leave anytime you
          need because it’s not a far ride.

          April 27th Sunday Ride to Leesburg – St Pete leave at 8am, meetup at 54 & 301 @ 9am
                 for Tampa folks; Ride up, play, ride back….. (100-120 miles each way)

          May 10th Orchestra/jazz Ride -- Nancy’s company has tickets (free) to the orchestra and
          would be a nice event to “ride” and listen to music, RSVP required since Nancy needs to
          get tickets for event

          Non-riders are always welcome to join, either on the back of someone’s bike or in car
          behind the bikes.

Trish is planning on a “all day” Sunday ride, May 10th. This ride is a total of 278 miles and it
will take ALL DAY. Do not make plans where you “must get back” at a specific time. We do not
want to “watch the clock” this will be a relaxing ride with no time limits. She plans on April 20th,
planning the ride if someone would like to “attend” with her…..
