Notes

We had a few unfortunate falls on Saturdays ride, luckily no-one was seriously injured. With more cyclists joining our rides our groups are becoming bigger and it becomes necessary for everyone to be more vigilant about overlapping wheels, road conditions ahead, pointing out objects in the road and please staying inside the yellow line at all times. Please try not to overtake on the left as you are endangering the cyclists life by forcing him or her into the road to give way for you. When we stop to regroup please try to stand as far as possible away from the yellow line to give fellow cyclists a chance to stay inside the yellow line when they pass us.
