Expect to have a chat to almost everyone in your group as you move up and down the group.
Show respect to all road users and pedestrians.
If you see something in the road that is potentially dangerous, shout it out and that will be echoed down the group to riders at the back who are unlikely to see them as quickly.
Cars approaching the group from the front will be accompanied by a 'CAR DOWN!' and from the rear with a 'CAR UP!' . However, just a shout of 'CAR!' is often enough to get peoples attention.
During the ride, the group will rotate in an anti-clockwise motion every 5 minutes or so. This enables the riders on the front to take a break, whilst the next two riders in the right lane rotate around to lead the group. It might sound complicated, but rotations will be communicated so you will so get the hang of it.
Nothing else to say here!
