Four Tips for Preparing for Group Rides
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation® suggests that before a group ride:
- Show up with a full tank and on time. Bring your cell phone.
- Meet and talk over the route, rest stops, fuel stops.
- If necessary, divide the riders into smaller groups so there are five to seven riders per group.
- Assign experienced riders to lead and sweep (tail) for each group. At least one rider in each group should have a first-aid kit and a complete tool kit.
Stay safe out there!
