POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Ride In a Group


We strongly recommend riding in a group, preferably people who are carrying a cell phone if you are not. In case something unexpected happens, they can also assist you or get more help. Two heads are also definitely better than one when looking for turns, and you can share your cue sheets and maps in case one set gets lost or destroyed on the road.

It is also best to ride with other participants in heavier traffic whenever possible because you will be more visible in a group and therefore safer.

Don't hesitate to introduce yourself to someone who you think might be a good person to ride with. Remember, every single person on our events shares the common bond of a love of cycling with you. Most likely you'll meet a new friend you didn't know before.

No participant has ever not been able to find someone to ride with at their pace and ability level.
