Plan Your Ride

Planning your ride is key to bike safety. Wear bright clothing so you’re seen, indicate well in advance, always check your blindspot, keep in a driver's mirrors and wear the right safety gear (jacket, gloves, boots, pants, helmet).

At the end of the weekend, plan to get home safely too, take advantage of the TAC Spokes pit stop on Sunday at United Petrol Station, Tooradin from 5pm-10pm.
