Tours and Runs.

All the runs will start from Copley Square promptly at the time stated.

It is the request of the Committee that those that attend the runs will please comply with the orders issued by those in charge "and pass the same down the line," and ride as directed, either by two's or four's, and not spread out all over the road; by doing this it will add greatly to the comfort, convenience and safety of those that participate.

Frequent halts will be made along the routes, and the pace it is hoped will be satisfactory to all. In dismounting or withdrawing from line be sure and notify persons back of you, to avoid collision and accident. Where there are two or three runs starting from Copley Square within a short time of each other, to avoid confusion the number of the run will be marked on the sidewalk in chalk and their destination. If there should be a large attendance on these runs they will be run in sections a short distance apart from each other. Watch the bulletin board at headquarters for any change in programme or new special runs that may be proposed.
