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 Practices
  8.    Obey The Rules of the Road.
  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
