Note that all visitors are welcome to join club rides however there are a few important ride

Guidelines we use for safety, and we ask that you and our club members observe these Ride Guidelines.

(1) FUEL: Arrive at the departure point with full tank, ensure your tires are roadworthy and up to the ride.

(2) Ride and Attendance Sheet: A Club ride attendance sheet will be maintained

                  by the organizers for each official Club ride with details of……….

          a. Rider and Pillion.

          b. Bike Make & Registration.

          c. Emergency Contact. Including the E- contact telephone number.

(3) A “Ride Leader” and “Tail end Charliewill be nominated for all official Club


(4) Riding Position: Riding positions should be staggered behind the Ride Leader and a safe 

            riding distance of at least a two (2) second interval shall be observed between riders.

(5) Buddy up: Keep an eye out for the rider behind. If she/he drops back, do the same so that by the 

                  time all riders in front have slowed down, the message will reach the Ride Leader that there may be 

            trouble somewhere down the line.

(6) Corner Marking:  As a rule, the rider immediately behind the Ride Leader will be directed to

            mark a corner at the Ride Leaders’ discretion. The Ride Leader will indicate a safe location to stop and

             wait, out of the way of traffic with the appropriate turn signal flashing to indicate the route that following

           riders are to take. lf you come to a corner and there is no corner marking rider, and you know the correct

              ride direction, you should out of courtesy, mark the corner and not leave until directed to by the Tail end


(7) Don’t Pass on the Left: Under no circumstances are you to pass on the inside of

               another rider, unless you are in a separate lane.

(8) Be Responsible: Members shall ride responsibly and observe all State road laws, speed

             limits and appropriate road craft for the riding conditions.

(9) Other Road Users: Roads will not be monopolized to the detriment of other road users.

(10) Leaving the Ride: Riders wishing to deviate or quit the ride midway must notify the Ride

              Leader or Tail end Charlie before leaving.

(11) Passing the Ride Leader: lf you pass the Ride Leader, you have effectively left

                 the ride and you’re on your own.

(12) Call Back:  When you arrive home or at the end of the ride, please send a courtesy SMS or

                 make a brief call to the Ride Leader (or nominated contact) and tell them what a fantastic time you

                  had !! lf you don’t have their number – ask for it!
