Group Riding Etiquette
One of the great things about Padres Pedal participants is that every year we have riders of every ability level, from long-time experienced riders to complete newbies that are riding for the first time. Given that our mission is to help create a world without cancer, and exercise is one of the keys to lowering your risk factors, we’re always happy to help get people on bikes. That said, we want to help you be safe on your bike to maximize your enjoyment while on the road.
Now that we’re hitting the summer months and training rides are starting to ramp up, it’s important to us to help our newer riders feel comfortable on their bikes and on the road with other riders and vehicles. We work closely with Cycling Camp San Diego, our course consultants, to help support our training rides as well as prepare the courses for our event in November and they have been kind enough to let us share their CCSD Group Riding Etiquette with our riders. Riding in a group is different than riding by yourself, so review these guidelines before heading out on the next Padres Pedal training ride or on your own group ride to ensure a safe, fun experience.
Happy riding and keep the rubber side down! 🚴
