Lead

  • Lead position rides next to the centre line.
  • Set the pace of the ride. Usually we try to stay fairly close to the speed limit.
  • Know the route.
  • Know basic hand signals.
  • Know the phone # of your Sweep.


Sweep

  • Keep an eye on the riders in the group.
  • If a group rider stops – Sweep pulls over with them.
  • Know the route.
  • Know the phone # of your Lead.
