Rules / Code of Conduct

The following rules apply to all LBC rides:

  • Helmets are required.
  • Riders must observe all posted traffic signs and traffic laws.
  • Riders should be courteous and respectful to fellow cyclists and drivers at all times.

In addition to the above rules, riders are expected to follow a basic code of conduct to help ensure safety and enjoyment for all participants.

  • No team tactics or aggressive riding. Club rides are pace lines, not pelotons; group efforts, not races.
  • Help out your fellow riders, take your pull, keep the group together, and make sure your ability matches the rides you participate in.
  • Keep the pace consistent with the ride expectations.
  • Prioritize safety over performance.  No riding aerobars in pace lines.  Be mindful of the road and what is going on around you.
  • Minimize distractions; no cell phone use, earphones, etc.
