the sfvbc credo

The following list of rules, which have been unofficial for as long as anyone can remember, was made official by board action in September 2015 as the club “credo”. Mostly common sense, the rules are nonetheless critical to members’ safety. The board is currently formulating a policy for expulsion from the club in cases of egregious/repeated violations:

  • Obey all traffic laws
  • Be courteous and “ride friendly”
  • Don’t usurp anyone’s right of way
  • Represent our club and the sport of cycling well
  • Hold your line
  • Ride safely and predictably
  • Call and point out road hazards
  • Help each other out with flats and mechanicals
  • Respect regroup points and break locations
  • Let someone know if you intend to deviate from the route
