This ride will be combined with the SCC Adopt-A-Highway clean up. This is a great opportunity to get some volunteer points. The ride will start from Pattison Volunteer Fire Department. Arrive early (7:30am) to ensure enough time to get your gear ready and hear the safety and ride announcements. We roll out at 8 am.

You will need to bring some footwear, hat, gloves to change in to. Riders will ride 6 miles, then pullover, change foot wear and proceed to walk the SCC Adopt-A-Highway section picking trash in to the bags. Then they change back and continue on with the ride. The more volunteers the quicker the cleaning and more time to ride.

COVID: For the safety of all riders and volunteers it is important that we all follow the guidelines. Whilst this is outside it is important to follow some basic rules. Please review the SCC Covid Guidelines

Be aware of your surroundings – Be observant and scan the horizon ahead. Slow down at turns as there maybe gravel/sand/debris on the side of the roads. Roads can often be slippery due to the morning mist.

Communication – It is very important to communicate with other riders when riding in a group. Call out- debris, gravel, loose sand, pot holes, train tracks, any hazard small or big, car up, car back! I

Pace line – One must be extra cautious while riding in a pace line. One mistake can cause a series of accidents! Only ride with people you know and trust. If you are joining a pace line announce yourself to the person in front. If you don’t know the person in front don’t ride close to their wheel, maintain a safe distance. Always be vigilant of the pace of the person in front of you and also your surroundings!
