There is safety in numbers when riding bikes, research proves this. Yet, there are other factors to consider in bicycle safety when larger groups ride together. This panel examines the why and how of educating beginning and experienced riders for a club ride, charity ride, or any type of group ride. What should be considered when riding in a large group rather than when riding by oneself?  We'll also take a close look at educating group ride leaders to most effectively and safely lead a group.  

Engineering solutions as well as bike safety education can help  make rural roads safer for bicyclists riding in a group or riding solo. Hear about the benefits of rural climbing lanes and how improved safety can be achieved with minimal additional cost to a rural road project.
