All Groups will have a ROAD CAPTAIN.  If no road captain is available, the most senior member of the group will take the role as road captain. Road captains are there for the safety of the group and must be adhered to at all times.  Failure to do so may lead to you being asked not to ride with the group and reported to the disciplinary committee.

The Maximum group size for any run will be 20. This is for the safety of everyone.  The road captain will split the group and appoint a second road captain if this is the case.  The two groups will still complete the same route and the same rules will apply.  Both groups should be mixed of the same ability.

If your group does not go and you choose to join another group.  You must ride by the rules of that group. (do not try to ride at a higher speed than the group)
