[top]What To Bring


New toys only. At least one toy per rider. The more the better.
Tie a toy or two to your bike ( securely ) as it will make passers by
as what is going on and raise more interest.

Currently we have enough toys for small kids and recommend anyone
buying toys, to buy toys that teenagers might play with such as sports goods or Japanese books, games, music posters, etc.

Who Should Attend


Everyone with a bike! Your friends will be there. Japanese, foreigner, alien
all welcome. Show you care and have some fun riding with your friends
for a good cause.

[top]Riding Rules


Standard Japanese road rules should be adhered to. Please remember we
are all there for the benefit of others and lets be respectful on the road
and be extra calm with other road users who may get frustrated with so
many bikes.

Don't worry about the group getting split up. This will happen. We will
try to provide a handout with directions. There is no rush and no need
to speed. If you get separated from your friends, check your map to
get you back on track, or backtrack a bit and you might see other bikes
heading the correct way.

Also, refrain from gunning it and then braking hard. This might cause a
rider behind you to make a mistake. Staggered formation is safest.
Always remember there are bikes around you so don't do anything rash
that could cause them or you an accident.

We will have some group leaders. These are volunteers with navigation
systems on their bikes. They will have a red cloth tied on their bikes
and around their arm, so that you know who they are. Please listen to
them and follow their directions.

Remember to allow enough space for emergency braking. Please try to
stay in the formation you started out in, and avoid trying to move up the
groups. If you do not like group riding, feel free to split off and meet us
at the destination.
