One of our New Year’s Resolutions for the club is to ride better together in groups. A few of the following tips will help towards that  –

  • Keep an eye out for the rider immediately behind you – if they start to drift off the back, please call to the lead rider to easy off the pace a bit until they can get back on.
  • Ride a maximum of two abreast and single out when on a narrow lane.
  • Look out for potholes and call them out or signal a warning the rider behind you. The roads are in a terrible state at the moment due to the recent cold weather spell so this is more important than ever.
  • If you feel strong enough, take a turn at the front of the group.
  • Bring a copy of the route with you.
