Usual 5BBC guidelines apply. Stay between the leader and the sweep, keep single file, and call out stopping and hazards. Helmets are required on all 5BBC rides and you should carry a spare tube, water, and sunscreen. A bungee will help secure your bike on the train. Bring a swimsuit if you plan to go in the water.
