• Road ID App. Great features like "Lock Screen" and "Tracking Notifications" (FREE and it works awesome, RoadID .com)
• Have your bicycle inspected for your own safety and the safety of others riding with you.
• Say "NO to Flats" by checking the condition "wear&tear" of your tires and making sure they are properly inflated. No joke, don't be that guy, HA!
• Sunblock and Bug repellent (Trust me on this one).
• Look ahead for slippery or loose surface and potential hazards.

• Don't ride alone!
• ALWAYS USE COMMON SENSE.
• Must be self sufficient.
• Have a plan and let others know where you are headed and approximate time.
• Wearing earbuds while ridding a bicycle on public roadways is against the law. In the trails, being aware of yours surroundings is important for safety reasons. Don't wear earbuds, this is good group ride etiquette, courtesy and for your safety and the safety to others.
