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

4181 Nov. 2019. Looking back through the past 2019yr meets, the third Sunday of the month is the "dry" one ! Despite the recent wettest of wet rainy days, again today we were blessed with another dry, but a touch chilly, run. Twelve of us wound our way around a set of brisk roads, some with glassy sea views and even glimpses of the Jurassic coast.
Progressive was the pace and comforting was the tea and cake fest at Chessel Pottery. A good venue with a great menu. White beards and red coats next month chaps, Christmas is coming ! Meanwhile, keep safe, your T.E. Charlie, Steve, (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)
(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).
