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 CM1 endorsement on your license; 2) current registration on your bike; 3) at least the legal minimum of insurance.
We also request that your bike be in decent mechanical condition (good tires, no leaks, lights working, etc), and that you wear at least reasonably appropriate gear. If you or your bike have an issue that would be noticed by a cop in a traffic stop, we’ll probably notice it, too.
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!
