Group Rides - Common Sense Stuff

  1. Everybody must be legal (registration, inspection, license, insurance)
  2. Helmet, protective gear, long pants.
  3. This ain't a race. Don't pass the leader.
  4. Ride "The Pace"
  5. Keep your distance. A pile-up is no fun and ends the day too soon.
  6. Don't ride the centerline. Touch it only when passing.
  7. Control straightaway speeds. Live for the turns!
  8. No idiots or squids.
  9. No stunting within the pack.
  10. Ride your own ride.
  11. Live to ride another day.
  12. If the Po-Po lights us up, we all stop.
