Guidelines for Group Riding
Be aware of other riders; ride consistently, ride considerately
Ride with a 2 / 1 second gap between motorcycles; try to keep the group together
Ride staggered formation when safe to do so (lead bike left), avoid “wandering”, increase gap and ride single file in tight turns
Check your mirror for the rider behind you and pause at turns, pass hand signals back
Stay in your lane on blind curves, watch for oncoming traffic
Close up in towns, 2 thru stop signs/signals, don’t block intersections or roads
Allow faster riders to pass. Don’t crowd a slower rider, don’t overlap wheels
Ride Leader will change freeway lanes approximately 1 mile in advance of exit when possible
Visual head-check when changing lanes. Allow other vehicles to pass thru the group
Sweep will stop with a breakdown, other riders follow the ride leader to the next stop
Relax, don’t panic, have fun, be considerate; and remember - you can say anything as long as it stays inside your helmet.
