Ground Rules

We would like to remind everyone, that each rider SHOULD and MUST ride within their limits. If the group goes at a speed you don’t feel comfortable with, you should not attempt to keep up.

You are encouraged to go at your own pace and the sweeper will be with you always. The group will always stop at important points for everyone to regroup.

Please, don’t feel ever like you are holding the group. We ride to enjoy our motorcycles, among friends and we want you to be safe.

  • Safety meeting mandatory before the ride
  • Adhere to indications given during the safety meeting
  • No passing on the right side of the road
  • Ride your own Ride; don’t push beyond your comfort zone
