On our regular runs you will find members riding a vast variety of machines from the last 100 years or so. We do not control the age of the machines you bring unless the event is one aimed at a particular era. This means the run will proceed at the speed of the slowest machine. Please be mindful of other road users and the potholes.
Our midweek runs normally operate under the dispatch or drop off system, the leader will stay at the front and know the way, they will dispatch the rider behind them to direct the rest of the riders until the tail end person arrives and relieves them of their post. Both the leader and tail end rider will generally wear orange hi-vis jackets to help identify themselves. Please do not leave your post, no matter how long you sit on the wall, the leader will stop and come back when the supply of members is exhausted if there is a problem, that way nobody gets lost. Riders of faster bikes are allowed to overtake slower riders as long as it is safe to do so, but, will have to sit on more corners, don't overtake the leader or you might end up somewhere off plan, make sure you make yourself visible and stop in a safe place.
Some runs use route cards, especially those aimed at slower earlier machines where members like to proceed at their own pace. I will try to advise you of this in the programme. If your glasses mean you cannot see the card try to ride with one of the members who can or has a machine with similar pace to yours.
If you break down, you will need to let the back marker know what’s happened, if the repair is reasonably quick, he will likely stay with you, but if its terminal you will need to make arrangements for recovery.
