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

Circular run Sunday 18th Feb.
11 of us made it this month, such a long time since the last ride out,heavy damp mist, almost fog seemed to cover the Island.We had a young man join us this month for the first time, he was riding a 50cc bike which has limited power and can only attain 28mph flat out and although we tend to have a gentle pace there was a problem for him
on hills, we made a couple of catch-up stops.
The Island looks a bit drab at the moment and the roads were very slippery with the conditions, in-fact a member had an incident coming to Godshill and has stretched his shoulder tendons, very experience rider, 10 mph, slippery white line, we are all close to that when the weather is wet, at leased nothing is broken.
Thanks to Steve L - tail end Charlie. See you next month - P


(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).
