2.0 Requirements to ride with FOG

We love having other riders join us, but for insurance reasons it is NOT possible to just drop in on a FOG ride. All riders on all FOG rides must meet a number of conditions. They're pretty easy, but they must all be met. NO EXCEPTIONS. Read more here. Please also ensure you read our Policy Page.
