Ride Outs

On our regular runs you will find members riding a vast variety of machines from the last 100 years or so. We do not control the age of the machines you bring unless the event is one aimed at a particular era. This means the run will proceed at the speed of the slowest machine.

Our runs normally operate under the dispatch or drop off system, the leader will stay at the front and know the way, the rider behind them stops at each change of direction to direct the rest of the riders until the tail end person arrives and relieves them of their post. Both the leader and tail end rider will generally wear hi-vis jackets to help identify themselves. Please do not leave your post, no matter how long you sit on the wall, the leader will stop and come back when the supply of members is exhausted if there is a problem, that way nobody gets lost. Riders of faster bikes are allowed to overtake slower riders as long as it is safe to do so, but, will have to sit on more corners, make sure you make yourself visible and stop in a safe place.

Some runs use route cards, especially those aimed at slower earlier machines where members like to proceed at their own pace. Will try to advise you of this in the events.

If you break down, you will need to let the back marker know what’s happened, if the repair is reasonably quick, he will likely stay with you, but if its terminal you will need to make arrangements for recovery.
