Racing issues

Members are reminded that we are subject to the usual road rules while we compete and that we share the road with other traffic.  We are vulnerable!  Riders need to be safely close to the left side of the road and a maximum 2 abreast.

We need to remain on the left of any single centrelines unless in the act of overtaking; once the act of overtaking is complete, we must move back to the left side of the road safely and promptly.  Cornering does not count as overtaking!                                                                        Solid double centrelines indicate that we must not cross AT ALL for reasons of safety.

Members are recommended to carry their own pump and spare tube/patches or tubular tyre while racing.  Be prepared, as you may not necessarily be picked up!
