DBC/Lite

The DBC/Lite rides are open for registration.


Planned route:

Sunnyvale/Seagoville

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37057154


IMPORTANT RIDE NOTES:


  • Hydrate the day before and during. Replenish electrolytes - drinking only water is not enough.


  • Be sure to bring a front headlight since we are starting in the dark (and of course a tail light).


  • COMMUNICATE hazards and signals up and down the peleton. There can never be too much communication, 

 

  • DO NOT CROSS WHEELS


  • Riders don’t consciously cross wheels, and yet it is a major cause of accidents.  Some reasons why we cross wheels:
  • The riders in front suddenly slow down (usually due to a hazard).  Don’t jam on your brakes over a hazard.  
  • Call “Slowing.”
  • Unpredictable movements over a hazard.  Don’t make erratic movements or bunny hop to avoid a hazard.  



  • LANE CHANGES should be initiated by the SWEEPER, not the middle of the pack
