Helmets are Mandatory
Helmets should be ANSI, SNELL or CSPC approved, and must be brought to the registration desk. Cycling safety and strict adherence to all cycling rules of the road are imperative. Riding two, three and four abreast is a violation of traffic laws and safe riding practices. Not only does this put you at risk but events like this will not be allowed by the towns if it continues. Be safe – be considerate.
