Oedipus has a long and proud tradition of encouraging guests to join us on our rides. We don’t want to decline any rider who chooses to attend, but we have certain minimum expectations that we insist on – basically, a fully legal rider on a road-ready bike.

 

If you would like to ride with us, our requirements are the same as the state of California’s: 1) valid Class CM1 license;  2) current registration on your bike; 3) at least the legal minimum of insurance.

 

We also request that your bike be in good mechanical condition (good tires, no leaks, lights working, etc.). If you or your bike have an issue that would be noticed by a police officer in a traffic stop, we’ll probably notice it, too.

While we have no formal requirements on the subjective issue of gear, we strongly encourage both members and guests to dress appropriately. Full leathers might not be your thing, but road rash probably isn’t, either. If you have any questions or would like a recommendation on attire, please ask any member – several of us are enthusiastic experts on the topic of gear.

If you are a guest who has not ridden with us before, please review this 10-minute MSF Riding Safety Video . The first five minutes are the basics on bike maintenance and ride preparation, but please be sure to view from 4:55 to the end for information on group ride procedure and etiquette. We generally follow these principles, to ensure a safe and entertaining ride for everybody.

Our rides are neither a parade nor a sprint, all riders should proceed at their own pace. We tend to split into two or three organically pace-based groups, so there is no reason or need to race to keep up, please do not do so. The ride leader will stop at all direction decision points to allow the group to re-form. Please show the same courtesy and respect to other members on the ride – and other users of the road – that you would like to receive yourself.

 

If you have any questions or issues, please contact me before or during the ride, or ask any Oedipus member!
