Ride Rules are here for the safety and well being of all participants and to maintain the legality and integrity of this event.
If you have invited people to the event, please make sure you share these with them.
*Follow the direction of the ride leaders which can be identified by ride monitors with bright orange vests, these are volunteers helping us keep safe while on the route, as well as lead and follow vehicles with the WNBRLA logo on the vehicle. They are there to help ensure the ride goes smoothly, so that we can continue to hold this event in the future Do not follow direction of any "rogue" leader. If motor officers and police officers are present, follow the direction of the officers as well.
* Stay behind the lead vehicle at all times-this is not a race and it is important that we stick together as much as possible while complying to traffic law. The lead vehicle will hold some lights to allow riders to catch up. DO NOT PASS IT! Stay in the right lane at all times and do not stray into passing lanes so that vehicles may safely pass if they are going the same direction.
* Riders must stay together as a group when bikes in front of you move, you must go as well.
* No sudden stops or turns, as we have a large peloton of riders together, abrupt stopping or turning can cause accidents. IF you drop something, pull gradually to the side before going back for it.
Stay in front of closing vehicles. The follow up vehicles are for YOUR protection, If your bike breaks, you are injured, or you simply cant keep up, you will be picked up and your bike will be placed in a truck so you can ride the rest of the way to staging area. ( You will be provided a towel for your ride back to sit on. Please respect the vehicle owner by using it) If the follow vehicles catch up to you, you will not be allowed to drop behind them. You will need to hurry and stay in front of them OR accept the ride that is offered. There is limited space in these vehicles, so don't go on the ride assuming that this is your ride back. If you are slow, use the ride stops at lights to catch up and move forward towards the front of the group. LAPD will be behind us monitoring compliance.
DO NOT DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
Consume alcoholic beverages or drugs, perform any form of lewd activity, take short cuts or go off the authorized route, stop and enter any store or buy things from street vendors along the route while naked.
