Anyone under the age of 18 who wants to ride as a guest will need to fill out a waiver.  The minimum age to ride with us is 15.

We will ask that you hang in the back to understand what the riders in front are doing.  They’ll ‘shuffle’ for the first several miles, and then a rotation will ensue after that.  If you are not comfortable doing either, please stay in the back.

Under no circumstances should you wear your Colavita kit when riding as a guest.  Members must be able to easily identify you as a guest.

Yes!  Those who wish to participate can gather at the Starbucks in Deerfield for post-ride coffee to discuss the ride (or converse about other topics).

We’ll ask that you yell out ‘mechanical’ so the members around you can hear it.  Everyone will safely pull over to the side of the road while the mechanical is taken care of.  If you experience a ripped tire (or other mechanical that cannot be fixed) you’ll need to call for a pick-up.
