Below is a helpful article copied from Rapha Cycling Club website about group riding.

Riding in groups is one of the best ways to improve your cycling, and can also be one of the most rewarding types of riding – sharing the road and the experience of the ride with your fellow club mates. Group riding brings with it certain hazards however, and many clubs stick to set of basic rules and guidelines to ensure that everyone remains safe while out on the road.

There are minimum standards that must be met to safely participate in a group ride, with everyone expected to be able to maintain their speed without sudden braking, and hold their line whilst taking a bottle.

Here are some helpful rules to follow when riding with the One Love Cycling Club.

HELMET
The wearing of helmets is mandatory on all our rides.

RULES OF THE ROAD
Familiarize yourself with the rules of the road and follow them.

KEEP TOGETHER
Incorporate waiting after climbs, be light on the brakes, and take care of each other. If the main group splits, wait for those behind before continuing. Punctures and mechanicals should also be waited for.

COMMUNICATION
Communicate with the group if you are experiencing issues with your bike, the pace, or the terrain. Make sure you let someone know if you’re leaving the ride.

SIGNALLING AND ROAD HAZARDS
Make the group aware of upcoming traffic and road hazards such as potholes and debris by pointing them out. If it isn’t safe for you to take your hands off your handlebars, call out. It is important to hold your line, making no sudden movements. Always check there’s room before moving out, and don’t forget to signal.

CLUB RIDES ARE NOT RACES
Club riding is about enjoying the road and the ride with your fellow club mates. Do not surge or pass the lead rider at any time.

HALF WHEELING
Under no circumstances should you cross wheels with the rider in front of you or, when doubling up on the road, the rider beside you. This is bad etiquette, very dangerous and can cause accidents. If you aren’t comfortable riding close to or behind someone else, get in touch with your concierge who will show you.

LEADING
All participants in group rides should try leading once. Don’t wait to be asked, offer to lead the ride if there isn’t anyone to follow. If you encounter a club mate in difficulty or think you could help out with an issue, use your knowledge to offer assistance or advice.

BIKE MAINTENANCE AND SAFETY
All riders are responsible for their own well-being, and should be prepared for situations such as adverse weather conditions, mechanical problems and flat tyres. We recommend taking a stowable jacket and carrying inner tubes, a pump, tyre levers and a multi tool. To guard against surprises on the road ensure your bike is well-maintained and clean, and check brake pads and tyres for signs of wear.

SELF SUFFICIENCY
You need to be self sufficient for the entirety of the ride. Make sure you have enough food and water for the duration.
