Ride and Event Calendar 2017

Ride Guidelines, to enhance a pleasant ride experience:

  • Arrive early and prepared: alert, proper ride clothing, check bike condition, fuel tank full, tyres at correct pressure.
  • Riders ride within their own limits ("Ride Your Own Ride") and observe speed limits & other rules of the road.
  • Riders do not overtake the ride leader unless previously discussed with the Ride Leader.
  • Do not overtake anyone on the left (unless in a separately marked lane).
  • Tail End Charlie rides at a safe margin behind the slowest rider and indicates to each corner marker rider that they may continue with the ride.
  • At each turn, the 2nd rider (the one behind the Ride Leader) pulls over and signals the corner - and waits until the Tail End Charlie arrives.
  • Riders inform Tail End Charlie if they intend to leave the ride.
  • Visitors are welcome at Ulysses rides - please introduce yourself, and ask about our ride protocols.
  • New and inexperienced riders: please ask the Ride Leader to match you with a "buddy" for the ride.
  • All Branch Sunday Rides usually start from East Perth at 9:00am.
