Let's get some Social Cycling NYC miles in this summer!
Some of you may remember the time some SCNYC cyclists came down to Austin for the Exchange Program a few years ago…(https://facebook.com/events/254408928004653/).
We are planning a trip to the big apple so if you’ve always wanted to experience riding a bike in the City or you were lucky enough to do it before but miss it like crazy…now’s your chance! Pick a few of your best biking buddies and take advantage of Airbnb’s fancy new split the cost feature.
We will meet up as a group for the SCNYC TNSR and for the first ever SCNYC Saturday Morning Caffeine Cruise. Post up any questions!
There is also a Social Cycling Exchange Program: NYC > ATX from ...7/18/18 through 7/22/18. SCNYC folks will be joining us just in time for the 7/19/18 SCA Thursday Night Social Ride Summer Lap Jam!

CAUTION: If you like to ride ahead of the lead, please be sure to test the route for your own safety and for the safety of anyone that doesn't know the route and follows you. Feel free to ride ahead on bridges as we always mess up on the other side.
WHAT YOU NEED:
NYC Department of Transportation Bicycle Laws, Rules & Regulations require: White headlight and red taillight must be used from dusk to dawn, bell or other audible signals (not whistle), working brakes, and reflective tires and/or other reflective devices.
Social Cycling NYC strongly recommends that every cyclist: Follows NYC DOT rules, EXPECTS all cyclists to accept personal responsibility for their own actions (or lack thereof), and recommends cyclists bring/use bikes, helmets, locks, IDs, money for food and drinks, and cycling friends!
HOW: WE ride AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way and let cars pass as best we can. We don't block intersections. We are nice to both our fellow riders and the other traffic on the road. LISTEN TO the volunteers helping to lead the ride. They are some nice people and have your best interests in mind. If you have any questions about the rules, please check here: nyc.gov/html/look/html/cyclist/cyclist_safety_text.shtml#sec6
REMINDER: The goal is to create a safe environment for all riders, but we cannot control, nor do we desire to, every rider's behavior. We promote personal responsibility and all riders are responsible for themselves. If you choose to ride with us, then you accept the risks inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles.
Social Cycling New York City is modeled after Social Cycling Austin.
