These instructions are for those who don’t have a Yahoo ID and Password

(If you already have a Yahoo ID, go here.)
  1. Go to
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the "Sign in" box and click on "Sign up".
  3. Enter your first and last names.
  4. Either:
    - Click on "I'd rather use my own email address" and enter that address and password.
    - Choose a Yahoo ID. You will be creating an e-mail account at Yahoo, but you don’t need to use it, just the name (ID).  Then choose a password that you'll remember.  It should be at least 8 characters long and, If you want it to be secure, contain both numbers and letters.
  5. Enter your mobile phone number.  You will need a mobile number to complete this.  (See #8, below.)
  6. Enter your birth month, day and year.  If you don't want that info exposed, you can make up alternatives.
  7. Click on the "Continue" button.
  8. You will be asked to either get a text message with a code or receive a call on your mobile phone.
  9. If you selected the text message in #8, enter it when prompted.
  10. You are done creating your Yahoo account.
  11. Then go to
  12. Click on the "+Join Group" button.
  13. Enter your own email or your new Yahoo ID and Password and click on the sign in button.
  14. Under Step 1. Your Contact Information, review your profile and e-mail address.  If either need to be changed, click on the link next to them and make whatever changes you wish.  You may want to use your normal e-mail address rather than the Yahoo one…If so, be sure to enter it here.
  15. Under Step 2. Message Delivery, choose:
    -  "Individual Email" if you want to see each message as it is sent to the group (this is recommended so you don't miss short-notice rides) or choose
    -  "Daily Digest" if you want once-a-day listing of all messages for that day.
    -  You can also select "Web Only" if you never want to get e-mails and intend to check the website to see what messages have been posted.  This latter choice will cause you to miss things that are time-sensitive, however.  (Don’t select "Special Notices" as there probably won’t be any).
  16. Under Step 3. Message Preference, leave the selection "Fully Featured".
  17. Click on the save changes button.
You will get a message saying that you are now a member.  Congratulations, you're done!
If you have problems, contact and I'll walk you through it.
