Important Notes

– We ride safe and leave on time. Let your fellow commuters know asap if you can’t make it.

– An important goal of the biketrain to allow less experienced cyclists to gain experience and confidence — and provide safety in numbers. That means we often ride at a slower pace than experienced commuters are used to. If you usually speedy be prepared for a more leisurely pace.

– New York law requires your bike be equipped with a bike bell and reflectors at all times and front and rear lights at night. Helmets are strongly encouraged.

– You ride at your own risk (and you’ll need to sign this waiver to participate), but we’re a friendly, safe bunch, so plan on having a good time!
