Cycle Folsom, its Ride Leaders and Members are not, nor do we claim to be, experts in biking, or biking safety. We cannot and do not guarantee your safety, while participating in any/all Cycle Folsom events, activities or group rides.

Regardless of your fitness level, or your skill and confidence on your bike when riding alone, group riding requires a different set of skills and awareness. We often rely on our Ride Leaders and our more experienced members to observe your skill level during the first several rides you join. Our goal is not to intimidate anyone, but, if needed, we'll likely offer some guidance and tips to better ensure your safety and the safety of others riding with you—as well as others who may be on the trail or road. This is important to everyone in the group, so please keep an open, receptive mind.
