Riders between the ages of 13 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times.
For youth groups participating and riding together, one adult must ride with each group of five youth cyclists.
Cyclists between the ages of 13 and 15 must be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times and may participate only if they are judged to have a proven record of long distance biking experience.
Each youth cyclist must carry with him or her at all times a signed medical release form (signed by a parent or legal guardian) which gives the rider’s accompanying adult permission to authorize medical treatment for the youth. Emergency medical treatment for an injured youth cyclist may be delayed if the medical release form is not available.
