SQUAD IS KING — Our SQUAD is what makes Bikes on Rice work. They are the volunteers in yellow shirts that keep you safe and on the road. They make and test the routes, fix your flats, lead the ride, and keep everyone safe. LISTEN to the SQUAD at all times and THANK them for their service! If you would like us to consider you as a member of SQUAD please fill out this online form.


ON THE ROAD Come prepared. Make sure your bike is in good working order BEFORE coming to the meeting location. Bring plenty of water, a spare tube for flats, your helmet and a light kit. The SQUAD is there if you need them, but you should come as prepared as possible.

Stay Right. Always stay on the right side of the road and NEVER cross the yellow line into oncoming traffic, even if there are no cars. Let’s show the community that we can share the roads safely and respectfully. 

Communicate. Use hand and verbal signals to communicate with other riders. Shout out turns, stops, passing, debris or obstructions, and anything else that will keep the group safe. 

Stay Alert & Be Aware. It’s important to pay attention to what’s going on around you. You’re surrounded by many other bikers and hundreds of motorists at any given time, over a changing terrain. Make sure you’re conscious of everyone and everything around you to keep yourself and others safe.

Share the Road. If we want motorists to respect us, we must lead by example by respecting them as well. Before and after the ride, be sure to keep the road clear. Always leave a lane open while riding and when you hear “car back” be sure to move as far to the right as practicable to allow traffic to pass safely. When coming to a stop, do not ride past those stopping in front of you – stay in line.

Stick Together. If you see a gap forming, ride a little faster to keep the group together. Wide gaps in the ride may leave room for cars to break the pack, a potentially dangerous situation. 

Roll Slow. We call Bikes on Rice a slow roll ride for a reason! Stay behind the leader at all times. Do not weave in and out of other riders or speed past each other. If you want to ride fast, join SQUAD and try to keep up.

Don’t Be Sweet. Please don’t do tricks in the crowd, pop wheelies, jump curbs or try to show off. We don’t care how good you are, in a large group accidents can and will happen.



Don’t Litter. Littering is not acceptable. Come prepared with an old grocery bag for your trash or be sure to find public receptacles along the way. Show respect for our island – let’s make it better, not worse.

Encourage Positivity. Our goal is to bring people together. Biking is nearly as universal as smiling, offering a great way to bring our city together. We’re here to do something good – negative or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated.

Play Music Respectfully. Keep your music at a reasonable volume to be sure that communication between riders can be maintained. We do not promote censorship, but having respect for those around you is important. Please refrain from playing explicit music. Bikes on Rice is like a family, one that includes people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Make Friends & Have Fun. Meet people and get involved, the Bikes on Rice slow rolls strengthen our community by bringing people together.
