Have hand signals
Learning a few hand signals can help each other communicate easier while riding. It can also keep everyone safe on the road, have your group stay together, and have peace of mind.
Create a ride formation
Formatting during riding must be maintained. You would want to be close to each other to make it easier for motorists to see you. Also, give each other enough space back and front to avoid tailgating. Ensure there is enough space on the sides to be safe from swerving into other riders when you need to avoid anything on the road.
Maintain formation when passing
Pass other vehicles one at a time. The leader should go first and everyone else follows, you should all quickly return to your formation. Another example is that the leader can take the third rider’s position on a straight road. This can help them give the best ability to see the traffic ahead of their group. Also, it can help them watch out for incoming traffic and road debris ahead.
Take your time
Ensure to have lots of stops, unless you are going for short rides. You can also try planning your stops around beautiful sceneries and other interesting places along your path.
