Standard Group Riding Rules:

1. When riding in a group of two or more, ride in a staggered formation. Lead bike to the left side of the lane. Second bike to the right of the lane and so on all the way to the end of the group.

2. No side by side riding except to convey messages that are pertinent to the group.

3. A minimum of two seconds traveling time between your bike and the bike immediately to your left or right. A minimum of four seconds traveling time between your bike and the bike directly in front of you.

4. Scan in all directions 12 to 14 seconds ahead at all times.

5. No passing of other riders. Passing is only used for emergencies and conveying information to the group leader.

6. Know how to use hand signals properly. Do not use them if you are not going to use them correctly.

7. Wait in pairs as stop signs and stop signals.

8. Flash your brake lights before and during stops to communicate your intentions.

9. Run your bright lights (high beams) by day, and your low lights (low beams) for night riding.

10. If you are unable to ride the speed limit or have other special conditions, let the road captain know. A slower group will be formed to ride behind the main group.

If you do not feel comfortable with these rules, please ride at the rear of the main group.
