How to Ride Your Motorcycle Safely in a Group
The summer calls for road trips on your beloved bike. Motorcycle riding gives you an exhilarating feeling of being in the open air while feeling the wind over your body. This summer, you might join up with friends or the local biking community to all go for a ride together. But before you go riding in a group, it’s best to keep some safety tips in mind.
Riding in a Group Safely
- Have a route planned
Before setting off, everyone should know the route – how long it will take, where the stops are, and how frequently you’ll take breaks.
- Decide on a leader
The leader of the riding group should be the most experienced. They will be the first person to encounter other traffic and will know how to respond to situations on the road. The tail rider, the last in the group, also needs to be experienced as they could be separated by traffic conditions, and they can help ensure that the more inexperienced riders do not fall behind.
- Ride staggered
The leader should be at the front on the left side of the lane. The rider behind him or her should be on the ride side of the lane. Repeat this pattern to create a staggered effect, leaving plenty of room in between each rider.
- Ride prepared
Someone in the group should carry a first-aid kit and a tool kit. Every rider should have the appropriate protective gear on and a helmet. All riders should have made sure their bikes are ready for a ride beforehand, too.
