This is a ride, not a race
Please take your time to enjoy the wonderful views on any ride you choose. Be courteous to your fellow riders, please pass on the left, and be cautious entering and exiting rest stops. Be careful and pay attention. We want to see you SAFELY back at the Blairstown Farmers’ Market!
Event Rules & Regulations
Our routes are scenic and beautiful but still require your full attention. Simply put, try to keep your eyes on the road! Be mindful that deer and other wildlife may cross your path. If you see our furry friends, please alert your fellow riders.
HELMETS ARE MANDATORY
This is a must. No one will be allowed to ride without a cycling helmet, chin strap fastened at all times while riding. This applies to everyone, fast or slow, newbie or experienced, adults and children of all ages.
OBEY ALL TRAFFIC LAWS
This includes, but is not limited to, traffic lights and stop signs.
STAY TO THE RIGHT
At all times, except when passing, please ride single file when able. Keep in mind that the roads will still be open to traffic. Support vehicles and ride officials will be manning main intersections, but you will be sharing the road with other cyclists and vehicles.
PASS ON LEFT and CALL IT OUT!
Practice common bike courtesy and call out “on your left” ”when passing to alert other riders that you are coming upon and passing them.
NO HEADPHONES, IPODS OR PERSONAL STEREOS
We don’t want anyone to miss connecting with nature! Plus, it is not safe and not allowed. Great music will be at the After-Party!.
RAIN OR SHINE
We will ride regardless of the weather, unless safety dictates otherwise, so please plan accordingly.
MIND YOUR MANNERS
You will ride through some amazingly beautiful country. Do not litter – keep all gel packs, inner tubes and all disposable items with you until they can be disposed of properly. Please treat others with respect and be courteous to drivers by keeping right to let them pass when possible.
WEAR YOUR WRISTBAND
All registered cyclists must wear their official Tour de Blairstown wristband. Riders without wristbands—that is, any rider who is not officially part of the Tour de Blairstown—will not get a Blairstown Farmers’ Market bag and complimentary water.
There are no exceptions to this rule!
