GMBC supports, encourages, and expects safe bike riding on all rides. This includes common sense behaviors for cyclists when riding and driving and interacting with other road users.
- Stop signs are important indicators of right-of-way. It is illegal and unsafe to run them. In Vermont, cyclists are ticketed as well as motorists.
- Please do not hold up traffic, it gives all cyclists a bad name.
- Do not ride two abreast in areas of limited visibility, heavier traffic flow or anytime it might impede traffic.
- Riding with front (white) and rear (red) lights or blinkers are recommended, even during daylight hours and especially in poor weather conditions.
- Riders in group rides should monitor group size so that no more than 12 riders are in a single group. Two small groups separated by a short distance is preferred over one large group.
- It is every cyclist’s responsibility to learn and adhere to Vermont Laws
- Learn how to ride in a group or pack
