POINT OF CLARIFICATION
THE OVERTAKING MANOEUVRE

Overtaking Maneuver Image

The Gawler Wheelers adopted the Tour de Cure 'Bunch Riding Etiquette' Guide when the group was formed in March 2011.

Section 3.2 of the Guide is entitled, "Overtaking Another Rider", and details the correct method for the overtaking manoeuvre (as shown above).

A number of riders, particularly in the faster section of the Gawler Wheelers peloton (whilst riding in a "train"), have been put into a position of being forced to pass a rider on the inside because the lead rider has pulled out into the centre of the road to allow the other riders to "overtake".

This is considered an incorrect overtaking manoeuvre. The correct method is detailed below :


Comment by Wilson Devo on August 17, 2014 at 19:08

When the lead rider has finished "taking their turn at the front" they should indicate with a hand signal or verbal call for the following riders to overtake in a single file formation on the lead rider's right hand side.

The lead rider should not pull out into the centre of the road, "hanging in the breeze", and sit there using this action to signal for the following riders to "overtake".

If the lead rider has not signalled their intention to be overtaken but the following riders "feel like giving the lead rider a break" then they are free to overtake on the right and should call 'Rider Right', 'Overtaking', 'Giving you a break' or 'I'll take a turn' etc. as they pass by. (The first rider to pass will generally make this verbal call.)

The lead rider should continue riding on the left and allow the following riders to overtake on the right. The lead rider can optionally "soft pedal" and in doing so, it will make it easier for the following riders to overtake.

The last rider in the overtaking group should call 'last rider' when passing the previous lead rider to signify that there are no more riders overtaking. This lets the previous lead rider know that they need to follow the wheel of this "last rider" and resume normal pedalling in order to stay with the group and not get left behind.

THE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER

Andrea Woolger

Dear Friends,

Last year I participated in the Ride to Conquer Cancer in Adelaide. I'm not a scientist and can't find a cure on my own, but I can and will be participating in this event called The Sunsuper Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. Upon completion, Lifehouse will be a world-class cancer treatment and research facility providing integrated care and support services to public and private patients. Through this event, I can help prevent other families from having to struggle with this disease.

The Sunsuper Ride to Conquer Cancer is a 2-day bike ride, over 200 kilometres, throughout New South Wales' scenic countryside. Crazy, huh?! Me, riding 100 km (and in a State I don't know) two days in a row, with thousands of other people. As you can imagine, riding that far is not going to be an easy feat for me. I'll have to train and get in shape. But I'm excited that I can do something this big in the fight against cancer.

I know you understand why this is so important to me, and know why I'm asking for your financial support. My goal is to raise $5000 and I really hope you'll help me get there or hey, even beat it. It's hard asking my family and friends for money, but this cause and this event are very important to me. Click the link at the bottom of this email to donate to me online. You'll also find a printed donation form on my webpage, if you prefer that. Thank you for your support in my participation in this cycling event.

I would like to organise a yellow ribbon ride with the Gawler Wheelers on one of the FLAT routes. It would be a chance for people to be able to donate to a worthy cause and have some fun at the same time. This ride would be a great family ride and the opportunity to dress up and get a little crazy. If possible I would like everyone to don a yellow ribbon in support of THE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Andrea

POINT OF CLARIFICATION
MODERATE (PACED) EVENTS
DURATION TIMES

GW MODERATE Event Image

A typical Gawler Wheelers social group ride event will specify an estimate of the given route's duration based on a 25 to 30 km/h average speed, including allowances for multiple re-groups.

A MODERATE paced version of the same scheduled group ride may have an increased duration time depending on the various cycling fitness levels of the riders undertaking the ride, combined with the generally longer/harder nature of the route's involved, in addition to the possibility of longer re-groups.

A scheduled Gawler Wheelers Group Ride route will be ridden without deviation or alteration from start to finish, unless special circumstances dictate otherwise.

Riders who RSVP to attend a MODERATE paced event should have the intention of completing the group ride from the outset.

Calling a MODERATE paced event short, for reasons other than special circumstances, may lead to the disappointment of some riders who were prepared to complete the route in its entirety while still accepting the longer duration involved.
