Bike Safety Check

50 or 65 miles is a long way to ride your bike. Having a bike that is in proper shape will help make the ride easier for you. In order to ensure a safe ride and fewer mechanical fixes along the way, we implement a mandatory bike safety check before you participate in the Ben to the Shore Bike Tour. Our bike safety check is a quick inspection and evaluation of the overall condition of your bike such as your tires, brake pads, cables and housing, chain and chain ring wear.

Certified Bike Shops

Bring your bike into one of our certified bike shops at least 2 weeks prior to the ride for a FREE bike safety check. Please note, you will be responsible for all costs associated with fixing your bike to make it safe to ride. Great discounts and offers are listed below. 

If your bike passes inspection, they will provide you with an inspection band to wrap around your bike. This band will allow you to access our complimentary bike services along the route and will give your priority should any issues occur. 

If you do not live near one of our certified bike shops or prefer to take your bike somewhere else, please bring the certification form with you to the shop of your choice. Then bring the completed form with you when you pick up your bib and we will give you the inspection band.

If you do not have your inspection band on your bike during the ride you risk potential charges from our bike shops on the route and being pushed to the back of the line while our bike professionals help those with the inspection certification.
