The Recovery Ride is a community event that brings together cyclists from varying levels of ability and experience. Regardless of which route you choose, our goal is for each participant to have a fun and safe ride. The first and most important safety tip is to remember that bicycles are subject to all the rules and regulations of the California Vehicle Code. You’ll be sharing the road with automobiles, other cyclists, and in some places, pedestrians. To ensure your safety and that of others on the road, obey all traffic laws, traffic signals, and signs, including but not limited to:
• Stop at all stop signs and red signal lights.
• Never wear headphones while on your bike.
• Ride as far to the right as is safely possible.
While California law does not require adults to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle, The Recovery Ride cares about your noggin, so ALL participants MUST wear a helmet whether pedaling 12, 25 or 40 miles.
