We ask that you kindly practice safe cycling. Please ride single file and remain alert at all times. Please extend courtesy to drivers, course marshals, law enforcement officials, residents of communities along the route, and fellow riders. We require that all riders wear bike helmets and high visibility clothing. State and local rules or recommendations for safety related to COVID-19 will also apply.
