In the absence of the 40+ year tradition of the Annual Dearborn Cycling Saddlemen First Dozen Ride, Bike Dearborn is putting our own spin on it to continue this Dearborn 12 mile Tradition!!
We will be doing registration at Biggby West Dearborn(Michigan/Military). This ride is free, but we need you to register upon arrival. It is our hopes that in lieu of a registration fee, you will support a small business like Biggby who supports us in true Bike Dearborn fashion!
HELMETS ARE REQUIRED
This ride is FREE to participate! We will look into future event fees for fundraising purposes, but with the last minute organization of this event, we want to make it as simple as possible!!!
The ride will start promptly at 2p. Registration for this free event will start at 1:15p. You must register and sign a waiver to participate.
Mass start at 2:00p!
1. Ride the given route at your own pace faster than our designated group.
2. Ride with our designated group with a ride leader taking you along the route, and a small support team to make sure everyone stays together. Pace will be about 10mph
3. Ride the given route at your own pace slower than the designated group. There will be sweepers on the route to make sure everyone finishes safely.
We will also have a truck on call for any participants not able to finish the course.
HELMETS ARE REQUIRED.
Please make sure to have a spare tube in case you need it. We will help change the flat, but you need to have the appropriate supply!
Helmets are mandatory! You will be riding on open road throughout west Dearborn...sharing the road with motor vehicles. You are required to follow the law and stop at all red lights! Ride no more than two abreast, and be courteous to the motor vehicles as you would want them to be to you.
If you are riding with the main group, we operate as one vehicle and will have a light support team to help get everyone through the major intersections.
We hope to have a couple of volunteers to slowly make their way through the route behind ALL participants to make sure no one is left behind. We also hope to have a vehicle available with a bike rack should someone not be able to finish, or have a mechanical issue that can't be repaired on the road. Children are welcome with an accompanying adult...you will be on open roads with vehicles. Helmets are required. You must sign a waiver before the ride releasing the City of Dearborn and Bike Dearborn from any liability.
