of primary concern!
- Bring an instrument for your bike, anything is acceptable, bell, horn, whistle, harmonica, voice, or ??? If you
can ride your bike can play it safely ... then great! if not, there is always red lights.
- Listen and improvise.
- Mellow pace. Think about the people behind you not the people speeding off the front.
We will have a list of stops and regroups, and a meandering route, so if you get delayed and need to take a
short cut, it should be easy to find us. If you got fire in your wheels and need to ride away we won't chase
you... we'll see you when we get there.

air pressure and fill your tires, especially if you are riding a cruiser, mountain bike, or foldie.
