Riders in the group

  • Please pass along shouts so others are aware of what is happening at either end of the group
  • Please let riders adjacent to you know if you wish  to slot in between them, by pointing to the position you wish to take (wait for a nod or verbal  acknowledgement before doing so)
  • There may be occasions where you need to let riders in front of you know where you are in relation to them – do this by shouting – inside, if you are on the left of the rider,  or outside, if on the right
