Sanitas Sports Group Rides

Please fill out the following form.

As a participant in a Sanitas Sports Group Ride or other cycling activity, I agree to the following:

1. Place the safety of myself and others as my FIRST priority while riding. I will communicate any of my movements before making them, and I will acknowledge and echo hazard call outs from nearby riders.

2. Adhere to all directions of any group ride leader and sweeper, including leaving the group ride if asked.

3. Arrive to the group ride prepared and ready to ride (including but not limited to: all equipment working, sufficient water & food for myself, sunglasses, sunscreen, flat repair kit).

4. Abide by all traffic laws relating to cyclists as outlined by the state of Colorado.

5. Carry any medication that I may need (including but not limited to: epipen, inhaler, prescription medications).

6. Follow standard group ride safety practices (light & gradual when braking and shifting, calling out all potential hazards, not passing others on the right).

7. Maintain a safe following distance at all times depending on the conditions, but never closer than 1 foot for every 1 mph over 10 mph (e.g. 5 feet minimum at 15 mph and 10 feet minimum at 20 mph).

8. Ride single file on all bike paths, and on roads when visibility is limited.

9. If a Sanitas Sports ride leader isn't present (which, while rare, does happen due to unforeseen circumstances), then we will NOT have a Sanitas Sports sanctioned ride.
