MY MOTO

Ride Outs & Social Rides

For MY MOTO Ride Outs or Social Rides from our stores
When we arrange a social ride from one of our stores, or even a fully marshalled group, please make sure that you are aware of the following:

1. ROAD-WORTHINESS
Make sure that both themselves and their vehicle are legal to be used on the road. This includes having valid insurance, Road Fund Licence and where appropriate MOT. Learners should be displaying valid L plates. Bikes should be safe and roadworthy.

2. SPEED
Speed limits must be adhered to at all times. There may be Police present during the ride and monitoring people heading to the starting points or leaving after the event. Anyone caught breaking the speed limit will be liable to prosecution.

3. RULES OF THE ROAD
Traffic signals and directions should be followed at all times. This includes stopping at red lights, giving way to other road users that have right of way, and adhering to the Highway Code and UK Traffic Laws at all times.

4. RIDING POSITION
We would ask that where it is safe to do so all riders adopt the staggered riding position to help keep the procession of bikes as short as possible. For example Rider 1 near the kerb with the following rider keeping a safe distance behind and riding slightly off set. The next rider goes back to the near side and so on.
Please also ensure that on single carriage ways, all riders stick to their side of the road and do not cross the white line on bends, potentially putting themselves into the pathway of oncoming traffic.

7. OTHER ROAD USERS
During the ride please always be considerate to other road users and pedestrians. Please keep revs (and noise) down through built up areas and villages.
