Connect to ride together.

On Ladies of Harley® ride-outs the following guidelines apply. These guidelines ensure that the ride-out goes smoothly, but above all safely, and can be divided into two categories. The first describes the way in which a ride with a group is driven, the second gives general guidelines that improve safety.

 

The following applies to group-riding:

  1. Road Captains do not block roads or intersections. Their role is supervising the ride-out, and assist in case of issues or emergencies.

  2. Each participating rider will obey traffic rules.

  3. Each ride will be lead by a Leader (the person who knows the route). The Road Captain following the Leader will act as Pointer.

  4. The Pointer will indicate safely and clearly where the first participant riding behind him will halt in order to indicate the direction of the route to make sure the entire group will be able to follow.
    Participants will only be pointed on locations where the route deviates from the main road. If the route goes straight ahead, no-one will be pointed. If the route turns at an intersection, a participant will be pointed to indicate the correct direction for the remainder of the group. The participant that is pointed will indicate the correct direction using the indicators on the motorcycle, hand gestures or the direction in which his motor is positioned.

  5. One or two Road Captains or Sweepers will follow the group. These Sweepers ensure that the rider who was pointed knows when the entire group has passed so she can join the group in front of the Sweepers.

The follow-up system allows for a smooth and worry-free participation to the ride-out. First-time participants are encouraged to take position in the back of the group in order to get acquainted with the follow-up system before being pointed themselves.

Furthermore:

  • Make sure to arrive at the departure of the ride-out with a full tank of gas. On every fuel-stop, each rider will refuel.

  • In case of an issue during the ride-out (bee-sting) all participants will drive on and follow the route. The Sweepers will stop and aid the participant in distress.

  • All Road Captains will exchange contact-details before the beginning of each ride-out
