Group Riding can be a daunting experience without and agreed code of conduct. Equally, a Group Ride Out with DWDAM is not a Military Precision event; rather it is a sociable event with no observing or criticism, but with a code of conduct in place to ensure safety and prevent arguments.

  • All riders take part at their own risk.
  • Turn up on time with a full tank.
  • Please listen to the Ride Brief, so you know what is required of you.
  • Overtaking within the group will be briefed. If it is not briefed, then don’t overtake within the group.
  • Take great care if overtaking within the group as most members will not expect to be overtaken.
  • Not all riders have advanced passes, so be patient with them.
  • Ride with the safety of every other road user in mind.
  • When arriving at traffic lights/junction please double up to reduce the queue for other road users.
  • Allow space between riders for other road users to overtake.
  • If you wish to make a detour/leave before the end of the ride, tell the leader before you start or at a stop enroute. Please don’t just disappear – we will worry!
  • Ride cancellation decisions are the responsibility of the ride leader (e.g. anticipating severe weather). He/she will make arrangements to attend/cover the advertised starting place to ensure no DWDAM members are left uninformed.
