Ride Safety

Ride safety and health are important aspects of our club.  There are many benefits to riding in an organized bicycle group including camaraderie, better visibility to motorists, potentially longer and faster rides because more people share the work, and assistance in the event of a mechanical or safety incident. In exchange for these benefits, when a cyclist chooses to ride in a group, he assumes the responsibility to ride in a manner that enhances group safety and does not create a hazard for other cyclists in that group.

Many interesting articles are available that discuss ride safety and health, golf cart safety, and bike maintenance.
