Group Ride Expectations

 

  1. Regroup at T intersections and after hills.  It's a ride not a race.
  2. Obey all traffics signs and signals.  Make a complete stop at all stop signs and lights.
  3. Ride two abreast when possible, but do not cross the centerline. When climbing and needing to pass slower riders stay on our side of the road and keep the group profile as narrow as possible to avoid errant oncoming drivers. Also keep a narrow group profile on blind corners. 
  4. Avoid overlapping wheels. 
  5. Hold your line, especially when cornering. 
  6. Do not let vehicle traffic with the right of way "wave you through". Do not let traffic put themselves in danger to let you cross or turn. i.e. when slowing down in your lane to make a left turn do not let oncoming lane traffic stop to let you turn. This puts them in danger of getting rear ended and thus endangering us. 
  7. Announce "car back" or "car up" when there's an approaching car. 
  8. Do not engage angry drivers ... smile and wave. 
  9. Represent our club well.
