Helping you avoid motorcycle accidents while group riding

With summer in the air, getting together for a group ride with your cycling friends sounds like a great idea. However, riding as a group is not as smooth or easy as it may seem to be. It takes even more vigilance and caution than usual to remain in a group and still be safe from motorcycle accidents.

All motorcyclists in the Jersey City area will benefit from some tried and true safety tips for group riding. This is so for the novice group rider and the seasoned group rider as well. Our attorneys have gathered a few of these tips to help you avoid motorcycle accidents on New Jersey roadways.

Hold a meeting: It is always wise to be prepared. A meeting can help you decide things like fuel stops, rest breaks, your route and who will lead the group.

Regrouping plan: During your meeting, create a strategy for regrouping safely if you become separated.

Safety gear: At least one rider should have a tool kit and a first aid kit. All riders in the group should carry a cellphone.

Motorcycle formation: Avoid riding side-by-side in your group. Instead, adopt a staggered formation, which will increase safety for everyone if a motorcycle accident occurs. On roads with many curves, it is best to ride single file.

Signaling: The MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) provides a chart of signaling methods for those who are riding in groups. This keeps everyone apprised of changes in formation, road conditions, hazards, stops and many other important factors.

While following the tips above may not prevent a negligent driver from causing a motorcycle accident, it will help keep riders in your group safe. Practicing safe riding as a group can also benefit your case if you decide to pursue a personal injury claim. You can learn more about motorcycle accidents on our website.
