      360 Sports Ride Safety
 
        Safety is the number one priority when riding in a group. We all love to ride. No one wants to get hurt or have a friend get hurt.  The group is self-policing; cyclists should follow a Cycling Code that governs riding etiquette, safety and sportsmanship. A few safety points we can all follow that will help the groups to have  successful rides.
Every rider is responsible for his or her own safety, and for the safety of those around him or her. This includes picking rides that match his or her fitness and skill, and dropping back if the ride is beyond his or her level.
Road construction poses a risk to the group because of uneven surfaces, curb cuts, detours and barricades.
The front of the group is responsible to “go neutral” before and after any road construction, stops signs, and stop lights.
 
Running stop lights and stop signs is more than just illegal. When the riders in the front run a light, they put the whole group at risk because the group will usual follow them through the light.
If the light turns yellow as the group approaches the intersection, the riders on the front will stop the group and wait through the red light before continuing.
If the light turns yellow while the group is crossing, the riders in the back approaching the intersection will stop safely, even though the front group goes on. This will cause a fair and natural break in the pack.
 
360 Sports is serious about etiquette, safety and sportsmanship, because we value the safety of our riders.  All that we ask is that you show knowledge and leadership in following the Cycling Code when riding in the groups.
