GUIDELINES

  1. Be aware of others around you and communicate well in advance while cycling.
    • Use gestures in combination with verbal commands. Pass on the left only. It is recommended that cyclists advise others that they are about to pass – politely saying “on your left” upon approaching a rider usually does the trick. Ride with your head up. Look down the road not at the person in front of you.
  2. If you choose to stop while on course, signal to the riders behind and pull over safely.
    • Our on-course support team (mechanics, ride marshals, medical staff) may ask you to indicate whether or not you need assistance. If you’re okay, the signal with a “thumbs-up” to say, “Everything’s good with me.”
  3. Maintain control and speed of your bike, even going downhill.
  4. Know your limits.
    • Crashes can occur when inexperienced riders do not have bike-handling skills to make quick decisions in a pack.
  1. Always plan an escape route.
  2. Never overlap your wheels with another cyclist.
  3. Be respectful of other riders and help others when needed.
  4. Be familiar with the course route you are riding, it is up to you to know where you are riding.
    • Course marshals, volunteers, support vehicles and kilometer markers are along the route to guide you.
