Just a reminder to YIELD TO CARS that have the right of way (roundabout) and stop at red/yellow lights on our Sat. ride. Those at the front need to anticipate oncoming traffic at the roundabouts and the changing of traffic signals and slow the group accordingly. Ditto for the rear of the group. Let's try to keep it safe for the the final sprint, so please don't partake if you; have been "sitting in" the majority of the ride, don't have ability to pull at 30+ mph, have been dropped & jumped back in, or you know you just don't have the legs. We have always prided ourselves in a safe riding at the beach, let's keep it that way.
