  • Group riding requires good communication and visual contact.
  • Visual communication requires proper spacing.
  • To keep the group together, the trail leader should slow down or wait on the opposite side of a crossing when a stop is required. After crossing, the leader stops or slows the group to ensure that everyone knows the correct route.
  • Hand signals should be used at all times when riding. When riding with a group, you give hand signals to the person behind you.
    • Don’t make sloppy signals.
    • Make sure the person behind you can see your signals.
  • Two-way headsets installed in helmets are useful for voice communication and are an effective way for the trail leader and the sweep to communicate.
