Cycling Tips – Safety and Guidelines:

  • While each course will be marked, it is encouraged that you download your route to a Garmin device,  MapMyRide or ride with GPS for on route navigation.
  • DO NOT LITTER. Please put all wrappers, empty gel packs, etc back in your pocket and dispose of them at the next rest stop.
  • Obey all traffic signs and signals. This includes traffic lights and stop signs. If in doubt what the laws are … check.
  • Stay to the right, except to pass. Pass on the left side only. Do not pass on the right.
  • Ride in a single file.
  • Do not cross center line regardless of passing zone.
  • Use proper signals when turning. Make left turns from the center of the road or left turn lane.
  • Cross railroad tracks at right angles.
  • Ride in control of your bike at all times (i.e. being able to stop within a reasonable distance.)
  • Ride defensively, in consideration of your fellow riders. Do not ride too close to other riders.
  • Point out and call out any road hazards ahead. These include potholes, drain grates, stray animals, opening car doors, sticks or stones, parked cars, etc.
  • Do not overlap wheels. A slight direction change or gust of wind could easily cause you to touch wheels and fall.
  • When climbing hills, avoid following a wheel too closely. Many riders often lose their momentum when rising out of the saddle on a hill which can cause a sudden deceleration. This can often catch a rider who is following too closely, resulting in a fall from a wheel touch.
  • Communicate with your fellow riders, using proper cycling terms, such as “On your left,” “Car In back”, “Car in Front”, “Stopping”, “Slowing Down”, “On Your Left”, etc.
  • In the event of an Emergency: Call 911
  • Items to bring on your ride:
    1. Spare Tire Tube
    2. Money, License, Credit Card
    3. Cell Phone
    4. Water Bottles
    5. Energy Bar(s)
