  • All participants must understand and adhere to this Code of Conduct on official training rides and on the event.
  • Stop at all stop signs and stoplights.
  • Wear your helmet at all times when on your bicycle.
  • Ride single file and leave at least one bike length between you and the rider in front of you. No drafting. No pacelines.
  • Communicate your intentions. Use verbal alerts to point out potential vehicle hazards. Use hand signals to indicate right turn, left turn, stopping or slowing. Alert others to potential hazards by pointing and/or calling out in a loud, outside voice.
  • Look behind you before passing to make sure it is clear. Pass when it is safe to do so and pass only on the left. When passing, call out loudly, “On your left!”
  • Never wear headphones or earbuds while on your bike. The use of cell phones, iPods, mp3 players, radios, walkie talkies, handheld cameras or video cameras, or any other electronic device is prohibited while riding. Speakers of any kind are also prohibited.
  • Control your bicycle: keep at least one hand on the handlebars at all times.
  • Eat before you feel hungry and drink before you feel thirsty.
  • Be courteous and respectful of others. Be patient and kind. Not everyone has the same skills as you when it comes to riding a bike.
