Courteous Mass July 2012

We are excited to get back into it.
Here is the drill.
All parties are welcome to join and help bring common courtesy back to the streets. For those who need a refresher on what Courteous Mass is, here is the deal:
  1. The ride will respect and abide by the city’s traffic laws.
  2. Rides will be on the slow side to ensure no one is dropped and that the Mass stays a mass
  3. The Mass will only take up one lane, two when necessary for safety.
  4. The ride will stop at red lights and stop signs. If a light turns red mid-mass, the riders who made the light should safely pull over to wait for those who were caught by the light.
  5. Riders are asked to signal turns, call out danger, and communicate their intentions to other riders.
  6. All riders are required to wear helmets
The goal of these rides is to be a visible and positive example of the cooperation that can exist between cars and bicycles when people respect the laws and each other. So join the Mass and help make Fort Wayne a better place for bicycles.

Ride is every 2nd Friday of the Month which is TOMORROW FRIDAY THE 13TH Meet at Lawton Park by the Softball Fields at 6:15, Ride at 6:30.

This is a 3 Rivers Velo Sports sponsored ride.  Thanks again to their Board for allowing us to bring it back!
