RIDE ETIQUETTEhttps://lgbrc.org/ride_protocol.html

  •  Introduce yourself to new riders. If you’re a new rider, introduce yourself at the start of the ride.
  •  Roll out from the start/regroups gently so everyone has a chance to warm up and get going.
  •  Use hand signals and call out turns, stops and road obstructions. Repeat the message through the group.
  •  Mechanicals: relay the message to the front. Help out the victim. Wait for the victim at the next regroup.
  •  Ride paceline / 2×2 on the flats. Ride leader will initiate rotating paceline when the group desires.
  •  Follow behind the wheel in front to avoid the bunch spilling over the road.
  •  Don’t ride on the sidewalk at Peet’s
  •  If you leave a ride early, notify someone so the group doesn’t think they lost you

  • Please carry ID just in case.
  • Riders must wear a helmet.  Riders are encouraged to wear a helmet on LGBRC rides and riders are discouraged from riding with LGBRC groups if they don’t wear a helmet.
  • Riders are always responsible for their own safety.  If you feel uncomfortable riding with the group, gently move to the rear of the group.
  • Look for yourself for cars and other road users, and OBEY TRAFFIC rules – you are responsible.
  • Do NOT cross the centerline. You will be asked to leave the ride if you do so.
  • If you’re new to group riding, make this known to the ride leader and ask for help.
