For years we try to act like professionals in this volunteer capacity and yet every time we encounter a time change for Daylight Savings time, it’s handled poorly and our rides are messed up for a few days. We even tried to get ahead of the curve by sending the Events staff a ticket with what Herd rides are US/North American based and what rides are European based. Our emails have gone ignored.
An hour doesn’t seem like a big deal to some, but now we have ride leaders and sweepers unable to commit to the ride when it will cause them to be late for work, stay up too late, or miss scheduled time with their families. Also, the impact it has on the thousands of riders who enjoy participating in the same ride every week and also schedule their time around it, but not can’t make it when it’s an hour off.
As a community group organizer, I find this repeated issue to be unacceptable and highly unprofessional.
