We have requested that our local 53 Division provide a police bike escort unit for the main ride that departs from Duplex Parkette. Although the route is designed with your security in mind, bear in mind that safety is ultimately your responsibility. Please check bicycles to ensure that tire pressure is sufficient, and that brakes and other parts are in good working order. We welcome youths on the main ride, providing that those under the age of 18 are wearing bike helmets. Also, what would a Bells ride be if your bike doesn’t have a bell!
The ride will proceed rain or shine. Consider taking at least one water bottle, sun block and rain gear (– though we hope the last won’t be necessary).
