10 Key Rules of the Road


Wear a helmet when you ride.

Ride as far to the right as possible, sharing the road with cars.

Keep some easy to find ID on you when you ride.

Keep your hands near the breaks while riding in a group.

Keep your attention on what is going on in front of you.

Leave a gap between your front tire and the wheel of the rider ahead.

Plan an escape route, should the rider ahead slow suddenly.

Communicate with riders behind - verbally and/or with hand signals.

Ride at a steady, smooth pace, your behavior affects every person behind you.

Point out hazards in the road to help prepare the rider behind you.

All the best, Ian
