Leaving a ride

An individual(s) leaving the Group is to give the Tail Rider the recognised hand signal informing the Tail Rider their intent to leave the ride, for whatever reason. The common signal is a flat hand waved side to side across the throat signalling “I’m done, heading home”.

Making the communication clear will avoid a Lead Road Captain having to stop, or turn round and go back, to check that the rider is ‘ok’. It is also good practice to let the Lead Road Captain know before leaving on the ride of their intentions so that others following are aware and do not follow once an individual(s) leave the ride.

Road Rage

DON’T DO IT. Other road users can become frustrated and venting anger at other road users may have consequences for riders’ further back in the group who may not be aware of any situation.
