Group Riding Guidelines
Sussex Cyclists operates under guidelines that are expected to be followed on Group Rides by all riders that will be vigorously enforced by Ride Leaders.
It is the role of the Ride Leader to monitor and address ride safety issues and all riders are expected to accept their feedback and decisions. But it is the role of all participants to ride and behave in a safe, courteous manner and to assist each other to improve group riding skills and eliminate risky behaviors.
Below is a list of general guidelines which is intended to clearly layout the behavior expected on Club Group Rides. It is not an exhaustive detailing of all possible safe riding rules.
Our Guidelines can be summarized by the following statement...........
“Come prepared, Pay attention, Be predictable, Ride straight, Point out hazards, Know and obey the law, Peacefully and safely coexist with other cyclists, vehicles and pedestrians”
