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. PLEASE STOP AT THE POSITION INDICATED TO BY THE LEAD BIKE
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

The runs will depend on the Corona situation and if any venues are open, our pastime involves meeting in small numbers outside in the fresh air, the venues are normally roomy, and if we do go each person makes their own decision, above all feel safe in view of the virus.
run March 15th to Busy Bee
Very confusing times with Corona, which up to now I thought was a beer.
Still 11 joined us this month including a new member, many regulars gave it a miss this month as rain was also forecast for the day and it was not very warm, however it was dry and the temperature was quite reasonable after all.
The Island once again is beginning to awake after the wettest winter on record which has made riding motorcycles not appealing, still of we went.
The roadside plants made lovely splashes of colour throughout the run which was a little longer than normal.
The Busy Bee was welcoming as always with a few cakes etc, many thanks to Paul Turner who ran tail-end-charlie
(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) AND AT THE POINT THE LEADER HAS INDICATED BY HAND
(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).
