We have completed our 2016 Energy Riders Training Series planning. Interested in participating with us in 2017? Send us an email.
Safety and Etiquette
The Energy Rider Training Series reinforces that bicycles are vehicles on the road and subject to all rules of the road during rides. The expectation of all riders and all member teams that participate in the Energy Rider Training Series is that all traffic laws will be followed without deviation.
All teams are required to require their members to take Group Riding Skills Safety Training initially and at least every 3 years.
- All Riders must wear helmets
- No Cell Phone Usage while riding, pull off the road and ensure you are safe before taking any calls.
- No earbuds or cycling trailers
- All Riders must perform ABC Quick Check
- All Riders should familiarize themselves with the route ahead of starting and take a route map. Please follow all course signage, and adjust your ride length to complete by the time the route closes.
- All Minors must be accompanied by their Parent or Guardian
All riders should review the Energy Rider Training Series Ride Etiquette before participating in a ride.
