LAY-OFF SYSTEM FOR GROUP RIDING.
WE USE THIS SYSTEM THE LEAD BIKE WILL INDICATE A POSITION FOR THE BIKE BEHIND TO PULL OVER AS A DIRECTION MARKER FOR THE GROUP. PLEASE STOP AT THE POSITION INDICATED TO BY THE LEAD BIKE
This is normally done by pointing to an area on the road where the Marker Bike is to stop. This bike acts as a direction marker for the rest of the group USING HAND SIGNALS ONLY, turn off indicators. ALL THE GROUP PASS THE DIRECTION MARKER BIKE, WHEN THE TAIL-END BIKE ARRIVES THE MARKER BIKE PULLS AWAY IN FRONT OF THE TAIL-END BIKE AND FOLLOWS THE GROUP TO THE NEXT DIRECTION MARKER BIKE. This system works even if the group is broken-up in traffic, as the marker bike
MUST always remain in place until the TAIL END BIKE arrives.
THE LEAD BIKE AND TAIL END BIKE WILL HAVE YELLOW REFLECTIVE OVER JACKETS

21st Nov to Busy Bee - Ryde
I didn't count this time, but I think we had 17 bikes and riders plus Terry and Anne on their trike joining us this month. We all braved the cool ish, blustery weather with occasional sunny spells, for a good and varied run. Autumn colours are nearly gone, quite late this year, as winter looks to be setting in. The skies looked quite menacing across the channel as we passed Ventnor rugby club while on the approaches to Blackgang from Niton, the wind reminded us just how much it can move a bike off line! We arrived at Busy Bee in time for tea/cakes/goodies etc and a catch up chat in the car park. It was good to see an old acquaintance from the not too far past and a few new bikes sporting 21 plates. Until next month when we can chase Santa's sleigh, stay well and safe, Steve (tail end Charlie)
(Safety note, execute your turn then please cancel semaphore/trafficator/indicator, thank you)
(Just a note, whenever you are the laid off person make sure you stop where you can be seen) AND AT THE POINT THE LEADER HAS INDICATED BY HAND
(Quick Note: please do not use indicators when in the lay off position, if you are stopped with your right hand indicator going it will confuse other road users when approaching your position, please use your arms to indicate to others in the group which way to go).
