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 September run to Busy Bee
Just 8 bikes joined us this month which is not a surprise considering the Classic Car Show in Ryde and the Bike Show at Arreton were on. With the sky full of clouds and rain which seems not far away off we went and oh how quickly things have change, August bank holiday weekend was 27 degrees and 3 weeks later the autumn has arrived, still its always nice to meet up with friends, it stayed dry and as always Busy Bee made us welcome. Many thanks to tail end Charlie Mich (broken leg now mended) Oh, and my leg is more or less healed. Safe riding, see you next month.
(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).
