ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia ranks tenth in the nation for the number of bicycle fatalities. 

A cyclist group in Albany is dedicated to making sure that safety is a top priority for cyclists and motorists. They want drivers to give cyclists enough room, three feet exactly, to enjoy the roads.   

Lisa Kendrick joined Cycleworld's beginner cycling group not only for her health but to also learn the rules of the road.   

"We have different types of sign languages as far as stopping, when to stop as a group, when cars are passing or about to pass. Making sure we're single file and everything like that," said Kendrick.   

The group meets twice a week cycling 18 mile and 21 mile routes around Albany. Motorists do worry Kendrick and she hopes drivers are obeying Georgia's three feet law when passing. 

  "Motorists need to remember, give us those three feet," said Kendrick.

Etiquette Guide for Group Rides

Whether on your favorite century or just out for a spin with your friends, group etiquette is essential for keeping the ride safe and enjoyable.

 

Group Rides follow the Same Rules of the Road as Driving:

Remember, cyclists fare best when they ACT and are TREATED as drivers of vehicles.

Be Predictable:

Others expect you to keep a straight line and constant speed.

Use Signals:

Whether by hand or voice to let others know your intentions.

Give Warnings:

Warn of changes in your direction or speed. Signal "slowing," "stopping," or "left / right turn."

Change Positions Correctly:

Call out "on your left" as you pass. Avoid passing on the right as others do not expect it.

Announce Hazards:

Call out "gravel," "hole," "dogs," or just "obstacle" to inform others that may not see it.

Watch for Traffic:

Call out "car back," "car up," or "car left / right." Cyclists in large groups cannot see traffic, Acknowledge by repeating someone else's call.
