Keep Calm and Safety On Image
You can’t ride a bike without first considering your safety and the safety of those around you. Without guidelines, people would just ride their bikes willy-nilly and there’d be anarchy in the universe.
 
Okay, it might not be that dramatic, but safety is our number one priority throughout VeloSano weekend (and in the weeks of training that lead up to it), so you ought to know and understand safety information before you hop on your bike.
 
First things first, you need to wear a helmet. Any Rider without a helmet will not be able to participate, so be sure to get one right away if you don’t have one.  
 
VeloSano riders follow the “Rules of the Road”, which means you will ride with car traffic and must abide by all traffic laws. It’s important to note that roads and intersections are not closed to traffic, so you have to obey all stop signs and traffic signals.
 
We have several resources dedicated to helping you learn the rules of the road:
  • Safety Information – This document includes a list of road rules and safety precautions to keep in mind as you ride.
  • VeloSano Rider Safety – In this video, Tim Richards, co-host of The Jen & Tim Show on Cleveland’s Star 102, takes you through the importance of bike safety and proper bike etiquette.
 
Bike safety might not sound like the most exciting topic, but it’s an integral part of who we are and why we are able to pull off a successful event every year. So, have fun, be safe and Bike to cure!
