Visitors/mates
Visitors are always welcome as per the Bring a Mate mantra.  If you are bringing someone down to a ride for the first time, please consider their cycling ability beforehand to assess whether they are a good fit for the type of riding being done. Please introduce yourself or your mate to the ride leader at tool talk. If it is your or your mates first ride with the main bunch we suggest you remain at the rear of the peloton and not rotate through as to give yourself time to get used to the structure. If you are considering coming along please ensure you or your mate have read the Code of conduct and Ride rules (links below).
