Click here for the Freewheelers “Rules to Ride By” for information on how you can be better prepared to ride with the group!

Safety Requirements for all rides:

  1.    Minimum Riders: 2 or more…may be required, see postings.
  2.    ID with In Case of Emergency contact – required on your person/bike (not on your mobile phone). Many different options, just have one.
  3.    Helmets required (glasses recommended)
  4.    Rear Daytime Blinker Lights:  REQUIRED – BE SEEN.  A “Daytime” Blinker hurts your eyes if you look directly at it from arms length.  Make sure that your light is charged.  Lights need to point directly back (not to the ground or to the sky)
  5.    HeadlightsHighly recommend.  Be seen by oncoming cars and drivers turning.
  6.    No Earbuds – to hear cars and fellow riders
  7.    Obey Safe Cycling Practice
  8.   Do Not engage / respond / react to angry motorists.  Document – video / pictures / write to tell authorities if needed.
  9.    Be Open to Safety Feedback – we need to watch out for each other.  The Ride Leader cannot see everything, and can need feedback too.
  10.  RIDE LEADER MOBILE:  xxx-xxx-xxxx

Thursdays

 Moore Area

Our groups will work together to maintain the posted pace and the pace will increase as we move forward into the Ride Season…make sure you chose wisely the group in which you will ride.  The “1” nor “2” groups are NOT “no-drop” groups. You will be expected to keep the pace.  The groups may take different routes and therefore, we cannot guarantee that you can simply fallback into the slower group.  It is unfair to the others in the group not to ride at the posted pace and that will be our goal each week.

Make sure to hydrate. Our groups will work together to maintain the posted pace and the pace increases as we move forward into the Ride Season…make sure you choose wisely the group in which you will ride.  It is unfair to the others in the group not to ride at the posted pace and that will be our goal each week.
