Ride Safety

In real estate they say there are three important things to know about a piece of property: location, location, and location. In motorcycle riding there is similar advice, as it is all about safety, safety, and safety.

FWCMC requires that members and guests ride in staggered formation. This means that you should never be moving in a lane next to another motorcycle. You should be 1 to 1.5 seconds behind the staggered bike (the motorcycle to the left or right in front of you), and 2 to 3 seconds behind the bike directly in front of you.

Spread out a little around tight corners. Most will need a little extra space. We don’t want anyone riding off into the ditch.

Keep both wheels on the ground, i.e. no wheelies, stoppies, etc. People should also not slow way down from the group, then zoom back up to the group. While it maybe fun to goof around with your bike when you’re alone, it can create problems with the safety of the group.
