Staggered Formation. This is the most common formation we will ride in. This will be our riding formation on freeways and straight or slightly curvy roads. You will ride in either the #1 or #3 position. Don’t ride side-by-side. Don’t attempt to pass another rider in formation unless they have signaled for you to pass.
Single File Formation. We will switch to the single file formation while in twisty, mountain roads where riders may decide to use the full width of the lane for turning maneuvers. Don’t tailgate the rider in front of you. Don’t attempt to pass another rider unless they have signaled for you to pass. Never attempt to pass another rider on a corner/curve.
The lead rider will give a hand signal when we are changing our formation. If you see the leader, or a rider in front of you, giving the signal for a different formation, repeat the hand signal for riders behind you. After the hand signal has been given, safely move into the new riding formation.
