a few things to keep in mind
- ride single file on the right of the roads. They are narrow and winding.
- large groups travel more safely in smaller bunches
- stop to rest off the pavement
- drivers are expected to slow down and give cyclists space. Report dangerous behavior to RCMP.”
make sure you have lights and ear reflective clothing. Just because cars have headlights does not mean they can see you!
- bring water
Our roads consist of a lot of up and down and be a little challenging, but there is beauty everywhere.
