In order for us to use city, county and state roads, AIDS/LifeCycle must obtain permits from Caltrans and the local jurisdictions we travel through. The rules and regulations you’ll be asked to follow are part of these permits. There may be times that cyclists are held at a Rest Stop in order for safety procedures to be put into place for the wellbeing of all cyclists, roadies and motorists. We are required by law to abide by these rules and regulations. Please follow all instructions from law enforcement personnel, Roadies and staff. Failure to do so will jeopardize the event’s ability to take place in the future.
