Your Safety Is Our Priority
We work hard to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment at our event. It is not uncommon to hear previous riders say that Padres Pedal is the “best-supported ride I’ve participated in.” Here’s what we provide to support you:
• Cyclists are to follow the rules of the road at all times.
• All courses are patrolled by SAG (safety) vehicles
• Ride marshals are assigned to each ride distance and will assist with minor mechanical needs
• You will receive an emergency contact number for on-event emergencies on your participant wristband; please wear your wristband at all times while on event.
• We partner with city police, traffic control and CHP to monitor all key intersections
• Mobile and stationary mechanical support is provided, pre-ride and along the routes
• Explore more bike safety tips
Remember, Padres Pedal the Cause is a ride, not a race – be safe and have fun out there!
