  • Maximum eight motorbikes, otherwise create sub-groups.
  • Designate positions - experience determines the order, the best bikers at the end.
  • A routinier who knows the route leads the group.
  • Do not overtake within groups. Observe safety clearances, if it‘s possible, ride slightly offset.
  • Close the gap at red traffic lights
  • Do not mix with other groups.
  • Keep eye contact. Everybody is responsible for his backer.
