Safety

Safety for all participants is the prime concern of the ACC.
Please obey all traffic laws and regulations.

 

We suggest using bike helmets, carrying water bottles and wearing bright clothing for general visibility and safety. Be safe – be seen!

 

If you are accompanied by a personal SAG Wagon, make sure it stays off the routes and meets you only at food stops. Only the ACC provided SAG Wagons should share the tour routes with the cyclists. Every effort is made to make the ACC both enjoyable and safe. Please practice safe riding habits.
