Ride Out 2022

Come meet us and ride with us!

We floated the idea of meeting up with our subscribers for a bit of a ride out in Cornwall and the resounding answer was YES!

We were shocked that people want to meet us and that got us thinking that we could show people some of the delights in Cornwall and take people to see some amazing roads.

We would love to meet you and ride with you.

If you would like to come, the details are below:

What to bring

You won’t need to bring anything with you other than a sense of humour, your bike, a full tank of fuel and suitable clothing.

Chapters Diner is on site and have an array of treats available for purchase including bacon rolls, breakfasts and lots lots more!

What to expect

We both describe ourselves as 2 idiots who know nothing about bikes, talking about bikes, but we do like a good social, so everything on the day will be super easy going.

With time to arrive, have a cuppa or two, have something to eat and then meet both of us and more importantly for us to meet all of you, everything will be relaxed.  

You can even check out the bikes that are in stock at Damerells Motorcycles!

After we have all arrived and mingled, enjoying laughs we will lead you through some of the delightful roads in Mid Cornwall, taking in some amazing countryside and also the seaside too!  Mark has a great ride out planned for everyone.  The ride should take about 2 to 2 1/2 hours and we will leave at about 11am giving us plenty of time to head around the route and return to Damerells in time for coffee and cake before departing for home.

We have been working hard behind the scenes to see if our ride out is successful and if it is, if you like it, then we plan to make this an annual event at a local holiday park where we can have entertainment, food and fun by extending the rideout to a weekend event.

They offer a wide range of drinks and food, so everyone can get coffee and food before and after the ride.

Competitions

Route Files

We have plotted our route onto several different platforms.

Rules of the ride

As with anything, there are a few ground rules. (nothing major though!)

The aim of the day is to have fun, so we will use what we call the ‘drop off system’ to keep us all together and we will let you know what this is all about before we start when we brief everyone on the ride.

All we ask is that you and your bike are legal and that we ride within the Highway Code and road traffic legislation.

As RoSPA and the IAM say, your ride is your ride and you are responsible for it.  RiderCamTV are not responsible for your riding and you take sole responsibility and will behave within the law when riding.  This is to make sure we are all safe and that above all each and every one of us enjoys the day and has fun.

That’s it!

The drop off system

On the ride we will use the drop off system.  This is a method for ensuring that all turns are marked so everyone gets where the group is going, even if they don’t know the way. The system allows everyone to ride within their own abilities with no pressure to ‘Catch Up’.

Riders don’t need to keep the rider ahead in view, riders don’t need to contravene any road signs or legislation, and don’t need to exceed speed limits as there will always be someone waiting to point the way.

We will have a Ride Leader at the front and a ‘Tail End Charlie’ at the bank of the ride.

Once we set off, everyone follows the leader.  The basic rule is that the route is ‘straight ahead’ at roundabouts and junctions. If at any point the route deviates from straight ahead, i.e. a turn off or uncertainty at a roundabout or the group has split up for whatever reason, the rider immediately behind the Leader stops to mark the way at the junction in a place prominent to the following riders. This must be a safe place which does not confuse or inconvenience other road users. The choice of position will usually be guided by the Leader who will be experienced in choosing suitable places.

Once stopped, the second rider waits until everyone except the Tail End Charlie passes them before setting off. If road and traffic conditions permit, the second rider should re-join the group in front of the Tail End Charlie. If not, the second rider allows the Tail End Charlie to pass safely before setting off; he/ she then catches up with and overtakes the Tail End Charlie to reform the group.

It’s a great system and works really well, but don’t worry if you haven’t ridden with this system before as we will explain it all before we head off!
