California Deaf Wheelers (CDW) is a cycling club that is affiliated with the United States Deaf Cycling Association, Inc. It does not have bylaws and is not interested in getting involved in politics. The members and guests come to the annual meeting once a year. The meeting usually takes place on Saturday, one weekend before the Super Bowl. They get together dining, debating and brain-throwing planned for the year of bike rides. To run as an officer is voluntary, but sh/e needs to be approved by the members. No term! Members paid 10 dollars yearly; 5-dollar due goes to the USDCA for associate membership and the difference goes to the club. Remember that being in a bike club is supposed to be fun. That is the first and foremost way to make your club better - have a good time!
The purpose of the club is to promote the sport of cycling among deaf and hard of hearing people. The club consists of riders at all levels of cycling experience. Some members have 20 or more years of cycling experience, and others are just starting. Some members are involved in road racing, some in mountain biking, and some just ride for fun. Membership is open to all, no specific skills or experience is required.
