10 Commandments

about tdf

  1. Put no means of transport before thy bike

  2. Honor all other bikes. All bikes are good bikes, and all those who ride them are good people

  3. May every generation come forth

  4. Thou shall come as a participant not a spectator: It's a costumed celebration of human powered transportation

  5. Thou shalt not bring booze; But enjoy the supplied malted adult refreshments responsibly

  6. New Belgium shalt not profit: Our goal is to raise money for bicycle and environmental charities. On any other day, dressing like a freak and hanging out in the park with thine buddies might be reason for being called a Philanderer, but today thou ist a Philanthropist!

  7. Remember the purpose, and bring not your pooches

  8. Keep the day true with thy good juju: The ride is free, but we suggest a $5 donation to the good bike advocates who are putting it on for you

  9. Thou shall rise early ... once we're full, we will handle overflow like a restaurant or bar: one in, one out

  10. Thou shalt not steal thy neighbors' bike
