DO NOT RIDE–under any circumstances–in either of the two small “recreation lanes” to the left of the wide vehicle lanes in which the cyclists race. Note that the left-most lane in the lower loop on the west side near the Tavern on the Green is considered a “recreation lane.”

DO NOT BLOCK the start line area prior to–and especially after–the race. Allow clear passage to park vehicles and
other park users.

DO NOT DRIVE any cars into the parks. All cars and team vehicles must remain on the streets.

DO NOT ARRIVE late to check-in. Check-in closes fifteen minutes before the start time shown. In 2001, races will start promptly at the scheduled time.
Please be courteous to one another and to other park users, despite provocation. You are cycling’s best public relations representative. Let’s work to build public support for bicycle racing.

ALL RACERS: You must wear an ANSI or Snell approved cycling helmet. No exceptions!
Races: Senior Categories Pro,1, 2, 3, 4: All races will be standard “scratch” road races, with separate fields and prizes for the three groups: categories Senior Men Pro, 1, 2, 3, Senior Men 3, 4 and Senior Men Category 5. Masters 35+ Categories 3, 4: All races will be standard “scratch” road races, in which all of these classes and categories combined compete for a single prize list.

Only top finish prizes (not primes) will count in the cumulative total (1 point per dollar won). All Prizes must be picked up by the end of the Series. Remaining prizes are donated to the promoter.

Race Leader Jersey The race leader is the rider with the most points in the overall prize category (1 point for each dollar you win in prize money (primes not included)). The Offical Jersey will be green and yellow. The race leader will wear (has to) the Jersey as long as he/she remains in the points leader. The rider gets to keep the Jersey for life and there is a new Jersey given out each week.
Series Registration Points An additional 50 points will be given out to all racers who pre-register before the first race day for the whole series.

WARNING:
If you are spotted – under any circumstances – in either of the two small “recreation lanes” to the left of the wide vehicle lanes in which the cyclists race, you will be suspended for three months from all Park Races. Note that the left-most lane in the lower loop on the west side near the Tavern on the Green is considered a “recreation lane.”
If you are spotted — under any circumstances — urinating anywhere in the park, outside of the restrooms, you will be suspended from racing for the day.

Anyone who passes, draws even with, or comes within 25 feet of their pace car, or fails to obey the pace car driver’s instructions will be disqualified. This may result in the stoppage of a race and the disqualification of an entire field, if necessary. If your group is being passed by another field, you must move all the way to the right side of the road and slow down immediately, permitting the field to pass as quickly as possible. Any person or group failing to yield immediately, will be disqualified!
