Rules & Safety


  • Riders are responsible for their own repairs, although there will be mechanical support available. SAG personnel are not allowed to perform mechanical repairs on any bicycle.



  • Helmets are required for all participants (ANSI, ASTM, CPSC or Snell-approved helmets).
  • Helmets are required anytime you are on your bicycle.
  • This is a ride, not a race. Obey all traffic laws and ride as far to the right of the road as possible with no more than two abreast.
  • Your bike must be in good working condition.
  • Ride at your own pace. The ride will begin to close at 3 p.m. and every effort will be made to not leave any rider behind.

  • No personal SAG wagons permitted.
  • Mechanic support will be available on site, but every rider is responsible for his/her equipment and repairs.
  • Common repair parts will be available.
  • Rest stops will be spaced out approximately every 15 miles.
