Important Route Safety Information

While we love having a fun and great time, the continued growth of our ride year after year requires your help to make sure that you and your fellow riders get safely down to Atlantic City.

In order to continue the great time along our ride, PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW all of our safety tips below.

Traffic Safety Information

The Irish Pub Children’s Foundation believes that the annual Tour De Shore can boast about its safety record with the help of our cyclists and the assistance that we receive from the local police departments along our 65-mile route.  This year is no different than the past 28 years.  We are asking that you will continue to ride in a safe and courteous manner.  As always, please look out for the safety of your fellow riders.

VERY IMPORTANT: THIS IS NOT A CLOSED COURSE. You will be sharing the road with other vehicles. The motoring public does not always share in your enthusiasms and efforts during the Tour de Shore.  Drivers do not know how to react to cyclists. Please be aware of vehicles around you. 

Mother Nature and New Jersey road surfaces are not always friendly to us either- both of which we cannot control.  We will continually monitor the road condition and press the authorities to make needed repairs (sometimes our requests fall onto deaf ears – but we will give it our best effort.)

As you read on, refresh yourself with some common sense rules and laws of the roadway.  Together we can together make this a safe ride.
