Important Group Ride Information
This group ride is meant to be social, we will be riding at a casual pace.
Please take into consideration the following safety instructions for this group ride.
- This is a social ride – we’re not here to race so let’s take it easy, talk to each other, and have fun
- Single file unless leads tell you otherwise and there will be plenty of chances to ride side-by-side and chat
- Be predictable! This is the #1 way to be safe in group rides!
- If you intend to pass, do so quickly – don’t linger next to another rider when passing
- Allow space for riders to swerve as there will be potholes to avoid
- Please point out road hazards like potholes or parked cars, but no need to call them out verbally
- Maintain a consistent pace that the slowest person in the group can hold
Bag check option will be available to all cyclists who need it before the ride at bike parking.
When arriving after the group ride please make sure you use the mandatory bike parking in our expo before continuing to the GFNY Beer Garden. In addition before entering the Beer Garden make sure to grab a name tag from the desk at the entrance and write your name and company/title.
