Click Here  for a pair of short Safety Videos proving the need for calling out debris and wearing helmets.  The second video was captured by Dave Taylor on one of our club rides.  Our database on cycling accidents in the vicinity of The Villages only contains one fatality and that accident did not occur on a club ride and the cyclist was not wearing a helmet.
