Corner Marking System

Ride Leader:
-  The Ride Leader is to brief everybody prior to departure
-  The appointed Ride Leader is to be identified to all ride group members prior to the ride commencing and is to remain highly visible at all times (eg wear high vis vest)
-  At approx. 50 meters prior to the intersection, the Ride Leader is to indicate (by pointing) where the Corner Marker is to halt and wait for the group to pass
-  Ride leader is to maintain visual contact with following bike and must slow down if necessary
-  The RIDE Leader is not to exceed the speed limit and should comply with all road rules

Corner Marker
-  The “intended” corner marker is to travel no closer than 100 meters behind the Ride Leader
-  At approx. 50 meters prior to the intersection the Ride Leader is to indicate (by pointing) where the Corner Marker is to halt and wait for the group to pass
-  If the “intended” Corner Marker believes that they cannot park safely off the asphalt surface, then they should continue traveling behind the Ride Leader and the next bike takes the Corner Marker lo-cation
-  The Corner Marker is to remain at the designated stop point until after Tail End Charlie has passed, or until another comes to collect them
When safe to do so, the Corner Marker is to re-enter traffic and overtake Tail End Charlie, thus re-joining the group

Tail End Charlie
-  The appointed Tail End Charlie (TEC) is to be identified to all ride group members prior to the ride commencing and is to remain highly visible at all time (eg wear high vis vest)
-  TEC is to overtake the stationary Corner Maker at the turn point
-  TEC is to sound his/her horn when overtaking the Corner Maker (TEC is not to flash his lights as this may indicate the Corner Maker to pull out in front of them when it may not be safe to do so)
-  TEC is to slow or even pull over prior to the next corner to allow the Corner Maker to overtake safely and re-join the ride group
