continually contributing to the growth of bicycle culture in the

Slow Roll Code of Conduct
- Stay Right - ALWAYS leave the left
lane open for cars and the SQUAD to get through. It is safer and
just more respectful to others on the road. There will be times
where we can’t, but mostly we can.
- Communicate - Shout out signals,
stops, turns, passing, glass, obstructions, etc. There are others
around you at all times, so let them know what’s up.
- Stick Together - If you see a gap
forming, ride a lil faster to keep the group together.
- Stay Alert
- Don’t Litter - Littering is not
acceptable, if you see someone litter, make them pick it up. We
show respect for our city.
- Encourage Positivity - Negative or
aggressive behavior will not be tolerated on Slow Roll.
- Respect - Treat everyone and
everywhere we go with R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
- Be Prepared - Have a spare tube
for flats, bring water, a helmet and be prepared for 2+ hrs of
riding that ends in the dark, so bring a light kit.
- Have Fun
- Make Friends
- Corking - We have a team of
CORKERS that will handle this. We do NOT block cars unless critical
to the safety of the ride.
- Wear A Helmet - It’s just the
safest way to ride.
- Is My Music Too Loud? - You like
music, we like music, but please make sure people can still
- Roll Slow - THIS IS NOT A RACE.
Stay behind the leader at all times.
