Ride-Out Guidelines

By Dave Heafield


Chapter activities are conducted primarily for the benefit of H.O.G.®  chapter members. There are three categories of activities, identified as follows:

  • MEMBER events are events that are open only to H.O.G.® members (plus one guest per member).
  • OPEN events are those chapter events, which are open to chapter members, National H.O.G.®  members and other guests as desired.
  • CLOSED events are those chapter events, which are open to chapter members (plus one guest per member). Our Chapter will hold a minimum of four closed events per year.

One of the reasons people join the Black Mountains Chapter is to meet others who share the enjoyment of riding. It is therefore important to learn and understand the dynamics of group riding.

These Ride-out Guidelines have been developed to provide riders with information regarding group riding with the Black Mountains Chapter.

The Chapter plans many rides throughout the year. When participating on Chapter ride-outs we want everyone to ride safely and within their own capabilities at all times. It is important that you give respect and consideration to other members whose riding style and comfort zone may differ from your own. These guidelines will inform members of riding techniques with the intention of adopting the Chapter standards of group riding.
