    Every time this topic comes up it get disected into every possible secenario. These are general guidelines and couldn't possibly cover every thing that comes up while riding in groups. Don't be a hero, don't ride over your head, be respectful of the others in the group and try not to chuck your bike into the woods.

    All pretty good advice, especially for new riders. "Always watch the guy on your 6" is something I learned from 5Toez, late last year, when I went out with the group after Hooters. Took a nighttime backroads route(possibly the same one as we've been doing lately), and I was totally out of my league and was quite a ways behind the group, which made em slow down even more since I couldn't see a rider ahead of me. By the time I caught up, Bruce(who was the last guy in line ahead of me), had half the group turned around to go back and look for me.

    a good read lotta good points, my suggestions would be:

    a 'what to do when a rider does go down in a group ride"

    and a signal that a rider is breaking from the pack, or "how to break from the pack properly" sometimes it's hard to hear talking at a light or a stop sign, it seems common enough to warrent more info

    Hold the phone, Sometimes you belives the hype... Look at American Idol, Someone at some point in time told a few of these folks they could sing....
    I think the group has a responsibility to the riders as well, if you see someone riding over thier head it needs to be mentioned, preferably in a nice way. they just need to be taught or have something mentioned etc..
    And no one needs to jump out and chew out a person for riding like an ass.. unless everyone is riding 100% in the legal green. Also think.. It be kinda hard to get called out hard for something people felt was unsafe when people who are "accepted" rip a wheelie in heavy traffic with riders in front and behind. We don't all have to be great friends and drinking buddies to all be part of a ride, Just keep the shit to acceptable levels and look out for 1) Yourself 2) the rider behind and in front 3) every other rider with you
