Our meetings are held on the 3rd Sunday of the month
WHERE POSSIBLE PLEASE RIDE IN A STAGGERED FORMATION. THIS GIVES RIDERS A BETTER VIEW OF THE ROAD AND THE GROUP WILL TAKE UP LESS ROOM ON THE ROAD When riding as a group keep close together, when stopping - side by side please, move off together in pairs always leave room for another bike next to yours. Roundabouts, group-up in pairs, go round in pairs. This will reduce the chance of a rider having to take risks to keep up, or the group getting split up, always, if you stop, make sure there is room on the right of your bike for another bike and rider.

THE 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

Sunday 17th June - Cafe Verde Fort Victoria. Always a risk having a run on Fathers Day but it always falls on our run date of the 3rd Sunday of the month, Angie stayed at home recovering from our 12 Night East Coast trip to Scotland some 2059 miles, we got back on Friday.
Anyway 14 bikes joined the run with a few pillions, we welcomed back members we hadn't seen for many months as well as two new members and although I ordered good weather my contact let us down. It just about stayed dry before we left but it wasn't long before the wet misty rain started the clouds closed in with very poor visibility and a strong gusty southerly wind along the military road.
We arrived at the café which normally has a great outdoor area to sit and enjoy a Solent view, not today, the café was empty so at least there was indoor space for us all. Thanks to Tail End Charlie - Michel


(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).
