Road Respect Tour - Utah, June 13-18

UDOT Road Respect Tour - Who wants to join a leg of the ride?

In order to encourage safe cycling and to promote the Road Respect message throughout the state, The Utah Department of Transportation, Zero Fatalities and the Department of Public Safety will be sponsoring the first-ever Road Respect Tour, a bike ride across Utah. Beginning in Logan on June 13 and ending in Hurricane on June 18, a core group of 25 professional Road Respect riders will ride across the state, demonstrating obedience to the road rules and proper cycling etiquette. The riders will visit several cities across the state to participate in fun and educational community events called Road Respect Rallies, or shorter visits called Road Respect Stops.

The public is invited to join the ride and to attend Rallies or Stops. If you would like to join the Road Respect Tour into or out of your community, you are invited to meet the core group at the corresponding "Transition Zone." Those who join the Tour through Transition Zones are responsible for their own food, water, support and accommodations. The exception is the Moab ride, which will have rest stops with food, water and two SAG vehicles.
