Pelicans Cycle Club WINGS Program

The Pelicans CC focuses on four endurance rides in addition to our other club priorities. This club is dedicated to developing long distance endurance riding skills. Pelicans develop endurance skills using the “Pelicans CC WINGS Ladder.”

We have great pride in our ability to ride long distances safely and in all weather conditions. We also take great pride in educating and assisting other riders through the four levels of long distance endurance riding.

Pelicans Cycle Club WINGS Ladder:

bronzewings

Bronze Level:

500+ Miles within 12 hours

goldwings

Gold Level:

1500+ Miles within 24 hours

silverwings

Silver Level:

1000+ Miles within 24 hours

platinumwings

Platinum Level:

2000+ Miles within 48 hours

All Pelicans seek certification at these levels as a matter of pride and sense of accomplishment. Any rider wishing to gain Pelicans WINGS will ensure the following is accomplished and sent to the Pelicans CC on all rides to preserve the integrity of our certification process and to allow for thorough certifications.

Once a ride level and route are decided, riders must prepare and comply with the following:


1.  WITNESSES:

Obtain and list the name of a starting and ending witness, provide complete information as to name, address, phone number and/or e-mail address so that cross-verification may be accomplished if needed.

 Pelican CC Patch Holders may act as witnesses for team rides.

 

2.  KEEP A RIDE LOG:

 
Just click and print either of the following links, fill it out and use it for our verification process:

A ride "stop log" will be kept with a receipt from each stop.  This receipt can be a printer generated gas receipt or written gas receipt from each stop.  A start and ending ride receipt must be obtained; ATM receipts may be used.

A stop log entry must be made at least every 300 miles, or at any time the endurance run stops for 15 minutes or more (such as unplanned stops, rest stops, or stops where no gas is obtained).
 

3.  MAINTAIN ALL RECEIPTS!

Send in copies of all receipts from gas stops or ATMS as appropriate.

 

4.  CREATE A MAP OF YOUR ROUTE:

Send a map (a photocopy is fine) with your WINGS route highlighted and legible.
 

5.  SEND INFORMATION FOR CERTIFICATION:

--Prior to sending the information, please visit our Forum to make an entry and let us know. This is a simple process that will ensure our standards are maintained.--

Use one of the ride logs found in Section 2 above.  E-mail details of the route, copies of receipts, map, basic route and objectives, witness information to the National WINGS Director.  If you prefer to use the US Postal Service or fax, e-mail the National WINGS Director for the address/fax number.

6.  Payment for WINGS Certification:

A payment of $25.00 must be made via paypal prior to any WINGS certification being issued to PCCStretch@hotmail.com

When your ride has been submitted and certified, you will receive:

  1. One WINGS ride pin for each level completed.
  2. One WINGS certificate for each ride.
  3. One Ride Star (Club Members, Associates, and Jr. Pelicans Only)
  4. Listing of Ride/Certification level on our website
