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

July 21st Run to Old Smithy Café- Godshill
A very warm July day, around 18 bikes joined the run which was going to Chale Green Stores Café which was going to be open again, it wasn't, so we went to Godshill, Wendy joined us today her first ride since she broke her leg on a mountain bike accident last November. Thanks to tale-end-charlie Michel.
p.s. My BMW which had a smoking problem last month needs
a new engine AGAIN, quite why I don't know and nor does anyone else. BMW
are covering the cost, 3 engines in 32,000 miles, there is a problem, but
it's quite rare.
(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).
