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.
