If you are NOT a Facebook Member, email you pictures to Webmaster

  • Picture should be .jpg format and a small file size (less than 200kb or 0.2Meg)
  • Name your picture by using a short description followed by .jpg
  • Email subject should name ride:  Example: Pictures from TOMRV-2012  or  RAGBRAI 2012 photos.
  • Don't mix rides on same email.

In most cases all rides pictures look alike.  So make it easy on your webmaster by following the process.

The Melon City Bike Club retains the right to delete photos from any of the albums due to content or age of the photo.  We hope to provide a picture archive.
