Ride Leader Responsibilities
Note: The Ride Leader is not responsible for the competence or conduct of the individual cyclist.
Group Ride Etiquette
Cap’s Bicycle Shop is a Cycling BC recognized Supporting Business for Sapperton Bike Club. In addition to the Member Roles & Responsibilities, group ride etiquette is a responsibility for us all.
a) Say “on your left” when passing another rider.
b) DO NOT PASS ON THE RIGHT.
c) Use hand signals at intersections. Each cyclist is responsible for hand signals to advise both motorists and other cyclists, when turning or stopping.
d) Verbal signals are also important to explain “stopping” or “slowing” and often to announce hazards by shouting a warning, “glass, hole, bump” etc.
e) Use fender(s) on wet rides or plan to ride at back of group on these days.
Cycling requires not only safety, but also courtesy.
a) Riders near the back can alert others about cars approaching by using the verbal signal, “car back”, (or “car up” called by the leader in front.)
b) If a group becomes separated, at least one rider should wait at turns for the next cyclist.
c) Move off the road when you stop!
d) Ride single file. If double file is appropriate and legal, be prepared to move to single file to assist vehicles in passing.
