01 Sep 2018 6:30 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Safety tips:

  • Don’t overlap wheels
  • Don’t pass on right
  • Announce presence when behind/beside others
  • Don’t lurk in blind-spots
  • No sudden speed/line changes
  • Look beyond rider in front of you
  • Don’t call “clear” at intersections
  • Regroup *beyond* intersections
  • Pull fully off the road when pausing (maintenance, adjustments, discussions, etc.)
  • Get a Road ID, or carry equivalent info on person/bike
  • Beware of “first hill” slowdowns/breakups in groups (especially during startup)
  • *Gently* find your place as startup crowd thins out
  • Cool your jets! - Not a race, so don’t tempt/escalate others
  • Limit chatter/tinkering  - Give *full* attention to situation around you!
  • Be predictable to all (riders, traffic and pedestrians). No sudden moves!
