Bunch Safety

 

Obey traffic signals – red lights

 

Ride inside the yellow line

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.
