Safety and Regulations

Safety is not only about wearing your helmet and knowing the rules of the road, and must be kept in mind at the event and while training. Don't forget to visit our Training page to learn how to properly prepare for the ride.

 

Your safety is our top priority. Please read over these regulations carefully and abide by them throughout your bike ride experience. It is important that you ride safely and legally in the tour to ensure the continuation of our event. The police and highway patrol will issue tickets to cyclists who disobey traffic laws and those cyclists will risk being ejected from the Bike MS.

We know our participants are training in diverse regions. Please check out the sites below for more information on rules of the road, local trails, etc. for where you ride.
