We endeavor to provide two ride leaders for Groups C & D but this cannot be guaranteed. If there are two ride leaders, one ride leader is in the front leading the group and one in the back sweeping. Our ride leaders are volunteer EBC members who have attended a training class for safe cycling.

COME PREPARED

-1-2 spare tubes

CHECKLIST TO RIDE WITH US

Please come prepared before you join our rides–it is part of being a smart cyclist!

  • Helmets are required on all EBC rides
  • We suggest that you bring 2 water bottles–1 for water and 1 for a sports drink.
  • Make sure you have the basic tools needed to replace flat tires.
  • Make sure your tires are inflated to the correct PSI (usually listed on the tire sidewall. Wet conditions call for lower tire pressure).
  • Make sure that your bike is in good working condition, you have visited a mechanic in the last 90 days for a tune up and you check it after and before your rides.
  • Headphones and ear buds are not allowed on any of our rides.
  • Highly recommended, but not required, are gels, energy bars, or other nutrition of your choice.
  • We recommend you have breakfast before your ride focused on carbs. This will provide you with enough fuel during your ride.
