Group Riding Brochure
Club rides should be enjoyable and safe for all participants. Each of us should be role models for other roadway users. Groups cyclists are typically the most visible members of the cycling community—we can be billboards for exemplary behavior, or we can reinforce the stereotypes that cyclists are scofflaws. The impressions our actions leave on the motorists we encounter have a tremendous effect on cycling advocacy.
The Group Riding brochure contains some guidelines and tips to improve group safety and enjoyment, as well as the public perception of club rides.
