Training Ride Library

Due to constantly changing conditions, AIDS/LifeCycle cannot guarantee exact mileage measurements or road conditions. Please obey all AIDS/LifeCycle safety policies and California traffic laws. Cyclists in the Los Angeles area, please contact your cycle rep for training rides!

Safety First!

  • If you are riding alone, please be sure that someone knows your whereabouts.
  • Always carry plenty of water, electrolyte replacement and your I.D.
  • Always assume that car drivers don’t see you. Assume car drivers underestimate your speed.
  • Ride as far to the right as is safely possible-be sure to leave enough room between yourself and car doors that might open suddenly.
  • Ride predictably in a straight line–don’t weave in and out of parked cars.
  • Don’t pass cars on the right at red lights. It forces cars to re-pass you again.
  • Stay out of right hand turn lanes if you are going forward.
  • Drinking and eating are as important to your safety as all of the things mentioned above. Drink before you are thirsty and eat before you are hungry.
