POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Opening Meeting


We will have an opening meeting at the beginning of all events.

Attendance at the opening meeting is mandatory because we will introduce our staff members and review many of our event logistics and policies and procedures, especially the ones that affect safety considerations. We won't go through every single policy and procedure but rather highlight the most important points and clarify any questions you might have.

On single day rides, the opening meeting will be held shortly before the route opens. You should arrive at the opening meeting with your baggage loaded onto our vehicles and ready to depart on your bike immediately after it is complete. Generally, the route will officially open with a group departure after the opening meeting is complete.

On multi-day rides, we will also allow our participants to introduce themselves and their individual riding paces so you can get an idea of who to ride with based on your own riding pace.

Flat Tire Changing Clinic
On multi-days events we will also hold an optional flat tire changing clinic immediately following the opening meeting. Remember, we generally will not fix a flat tire for you except in extreme circumstances and expect you to attend this clinic if you do not know how or are unsure about fixing a flat tire in any way. You may also attend this clinic if you are simply interested in learning how to change a flat tire better.

If you plan on attending the flat tire changing clinic, make sure to bring your bike, tire levers, frame pump, floor pump, and extra tubes with you to the opening meeting.

If you attended the flat tire changing clinic and get a flat tire on the road and still do not know how to fix it, you will get your hands dirty as we teach you how to do it yourself yet again.
