We have a long standing practice of stopping at predetermined locations with the intention of not leaving any rider behind. It has worked well over the years however the group has grown to the the point it has been difficult to be aware of who has been left behind. Rider are requested organise among themselves to have a buddy group of say three riders (of varying fitness) to look out for each other during the ride advising if one of their group has been left behind or is struggling to keep up with the pace.
You do not have to ride together all of the time during the ride but to keep any eye out on each other if one of your buddied requires assistance or is falling behind. Your cooperation will be noted and appreciated.
