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.
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

Sun 19th Run to Chale Green Café
12 bikes were on this run, the weather was cold but not freezing, the natural
colours of the vegetation across the Island are hanging on to the golds of autumn,
despite the strong winds of late. The run was the usual mixture of larger and
smaller roads which take in even at this time of year especially over
The layoff worked well and we all enjoyed the warmth of the café,
I saw cakes & toasted tea cakes being consumed.
Thanks to Paul Turner tail-end-charlie
(Just a note, whenever you are the laid off person make sure you stop where you can be seen)
(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).
