Tips about the ride:

  • Helmets are strongly encouraged. A helmet cannot be provided for you. Participants over the age of 16 without a helmet will be asked to sign a helmet waiver.
  • We will be using hand and verbal signals during the ride to communicate with other cyclists, pedestrians and vehicles that we share the road with. Pass along the hand and verbal signals to other riders in our group by repeating the signal.
  • Ride as far to the right as possible, except when passing debri or other users. Always pass on the Left.
  • Ride no more then two side-by-side when the path is clear, and ride single file to allow vehicles to pass (not applicable in Bike Lanes).
