Claud’s Bunch Riding Tips #1 – Its About the Group, Not the Individual

Tips for Group Riding

When in a Group Ride, ride as a group NOT as an individual.
Always ride as if connected by a half metre thread – don’t break it for anything

When riding in a group of 8 or more use up the Left Lane to discourage “Squeezing Through” by motor vehicles
When stopping at traffic lights use up the Left Lane again stopping the “Squeezing Through”

A notorious set of lights are at the intersection of Marion Road and Anzac Highway

  • If bikes get there first, use up the Left Lane
  • If bikes get there second, stop BEHIND the cars and use up the Left Lane

It’s all about acting as a group and being predictable to traffic. There’s safety in numbers but if we don’t ride as one then the advantage and the safety disappears.

Look forward to your comments
