​Single File

​     How much distance does it take you to stop? Brian S was kind enough to share this "Braking Calculator" he found. Click the link and check it out!

​     As illustrated above;

​     Single file formation-maintain a 2 second interval between you and the bike in front of you. This formation is utilized on curvy roads and when hazards are encountered.


​     Stagger formation-maintain a 2 second interval between you and the bike your following in your half of the lane. The other half of the lane will put bikes 1 second ahead of you and 1 second behind you.


​     Trikes-Three wheeled bikes ride the center of the lane. The first bike behind the Trike will assume "leader position" (inside half of the lane).


​     Stay out of the blind spot!

​     In close quarter riding if you cannot see the face of the rider in front of you, ​in HIS mirror​, he can't see you.
