How to make highway rides safer

and more fun!

1. Each rider is responsible for his own safety and comfort, come dressed appropriately.

2. Come to rides 15 minutes early with a full tank of gas. This allows time to organize the riders into groups for the ride.

3. If you are a slow rider or donít like to keep pace with the group, come and ride anyway. Youíll be sent ahead and can ride at your own pace.

4. Weíll divide into groups of no more than 5 bikes with 5 minute intervals so faster traffic can pass us without problems.

5. Individual riders try to keep about 3 second intervals so we donít get separated so much.

6. Tail rider keeps the group together and helps any disabled bike. The rest of the group continues until thereís a safe place to stop.

7. Point to road hazards and also use CB if appropriate,

8. Keep windshields and helmet visors clean.

9. Ever ride should be enjoyable for everyone.

10. Always be courteous to all other traffic.

How to make city group rides safer and more fun!

  1. No more than three bikes in a group.
  2. Stay close together so cars donít cut in between bikes.
  3. Lead rider is responsible for the group together-look ahead for traffic and traffic lights and "time" your pace so that everyone gets through together.
  4. Regroup at the outskirts of town.
  5. Ride in staggered formation, but much closer together than highway riding.
  6. ALWAYS expect the unexpected when it comes to traffic, especially at intersections.
  7. Keep windshield and helmet visors clean.
  8. Remember each group ride should be fun for everyone.
  9. ALWAYS be courteous to all other traffic.
