:- Helmet, Jacket (Armored), Gloves, Knees Guards, Bike (with valid Papers and all that jazz), Good Riding Shoes (Avoid Sneakers, or Soft Shoes... Chappal / Sandals are a Strict NO-NO)
2- Bike Related:
Make Sure the Bike is in Good Shape, and Condition.. Dont wanna turn a Ride into a Haul session, now do we?!?!
3- Proper Riding Ethics:
We may hit Water / Rain / Unruly Drivers / Bovine / Canine / Feminine / etc, and the lot, while Riding.. Last thing we need is a Road Rash Session with Anybody / Anything.. So we all ride Safe, and Enjoy the Nature.
*Stick to the Ordered Numbering, and Staggered Formation as much as possible.
*No unwarranted Overtaking and Lagging Behind.. No need to Say, Overshooters, or Stay-Behinders, are a Pain in a group ride.
*So once the Route is Fixed, we ride only to that Specification. We Decide the Halt Points beforehand, and stick to them.
*In case anyone does wanna go ahead for photography purposes, then he shall make his intentions clear to the leader of the pack, by intimating to him..
*Everyone shall carry their own Water bottles / juices / Ciggys / fresheners / Commodities etc.. Lets all be self-sufficient Peoble....
