For our scenic tours, riders should have the riding skills necessary to maneuver safely on country and mountain roads.
On battlefield tours, be aware we will be crossing hallowed ground. Respect to the fallen and to others visiting the field is the theme of our group ride. This is best displayed by limiting noise levels to a minimum and maintaining a free flow of traffic.
Parking two abreast is preferred over backing in and tying up traffic. Some stops, however, may be on a slant, requiring bikes to obtain the best lean for parking.
Safety comes first. Riders should have experience in group rides. Helmets are recommended. Attentiveness to rider safety on unfamiliar roads is essential.
