The staff of the BLUE WATER RAMBLE and the Clinton River Riders are very concerned for your safety. We ask that you and your family abide by the following safety guidelines:
-The use of an ANSI or Snell approved bicycle helmet is required. Riding without a helmet on the BLUE WATER RAMBLE will cause you to be asked to leave our ride.
-Share the road. Michigan law requires you to ride no more than two abreast and as near to the right side of the road as practical. Canadian law allows you to ride single file ONLY.
-Obey all stop signs and traffic signals. The police will stop and ticket you for breaking the law. DO NOT OBSTRUCT TRAFFIC!!
-Headphones are prohibited. They may block out the sound of an approaching vehicle.
