Member Contributer VFRbeliever Posted June 19, 2008 Member Contributer Share Posted June 19, 2008 During the organization phase of our last group ride, one of the members asked a great question. Do we have any posted group riding rules? After searching a bit, I found short discussions here and there, but nothing extensive posted here on VFRD, other than Nick Ienatsch's excellent post on "The Pace". My proposal is that the wisdom of the board regarding group riding be collected, pruned by the mods if necessary, and made into a sticky. This is not a post about riding technique, but rather common sense rules about group riding. I have personally been on less than 10 groups rides with 10 riders or more, but have found the experience to be rich and satisfying. The group dynamic adds something intangible that riding solo can't produce. However, I think we all realize that if simple rules aren't laid down and adhered to, disaster could strike. What I think would be really helpful is a list. A list that could be accessed, downloaded, printed, whatever. Perhaps after everyone has chimed in, someone could collect, categorize, and organize all these thoughts and produce a single VFRD Group Riding Rules post, or a .pdf for everyone to utilize. Thinking through some of these issues before riding in a group could save someone's life. There are some seasoned, experienced riders on this board. Let's hear from all of you and see what we can come up with. ~Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
