Get ready! Bike Party's September ride is coming up!

THIS Friday - 8:30pm - downtown Campbell
Theme: "YELLOW" - so wear some!
Dress up your bike! Bring lots of lights, and noisemakers!

Following many people's positive suggestions, here's a reminder list.

Get Ready to Ride

Be Responsible
Know the law, and follow it...especially when doing otherwise might endanger others.
(No DUI, use front & back lights & reflectors)

* Remember to bring front & back lights, and side reflectors!
* No open containers, no public inebriation. Check yourself!

Leave no one behind
Take care of your fellow riders.

* Make sure your bike is in good repair so we don't need to stop for you!
* Inflate your tires, check your brakes, wear a helmet!
* Pack a fix-it kit among your group: pump, patch kit, spare tubes

Stay together - ride as one
We are safer as a group. Once we start across an intersection, we ALL cross if it's safe to do so.

* Check the route - know how to get home in case you lose the group
* Carry a cell phone or radio and have a friend you can call

We take the lane
We are a vehicle. Take the full right lane. Whenever we can, we leave left lanes for cars.

* See how to ride smart like the pros: http://www.bicyclesafe.com

Roll past conflict
Don't let angry drivers ruin the ride.

* Help keep the ride calm - be a peacemaker, calm others down, discourage rumors and conflicts
* Bike to enjoy, don't bike to destroy!

Respect the Ride
We are all here to have fun.

* If you see people being jerks, TELL THEM! Ask them to leave!
* Respect the ride, PROTECT the ride!
