BUNCH SAFETY

Obey traffic signals – red lights

Ride inside the yellow line

Single file on narrow roads

Point out objects in the road

Bunch Etiquette

Blow your nose at the back of the bunch

Don’t attack – training rides are just that – training rides

Don’t half bike

Be punctual

Saturdays – rides are slower and easier so beginners are welcome. We try and cater for a long and short group depending on the turn-outs. 

Sundays – rides are usually more challenging i.e. 30+ km/hr pace. We however try and cater for multiple groups with separate capabilities, depending on the turn-outs on the day.
