CUK Ride Leaders Info - max riders per leader

Postby westofsouth » 25 Mar 2019, 8:57pm

Can anyone give me a link to the CUK 'guidance for ride leaders' page - specifically suggested max no of ride participants (to minimise issues with other road users)
Thanks

There are no hard and fast rules about the amount of people acceptable on a group ride as it depends
on many variables, such as the competence of the riders and Ride Leaders, the number of Ride
Leaders available, the planned route and so on. As Ride Leader, you should be confident you can
handle the number of people who turn up for the ride. Cycling UK recommends considering dividing up
groups of 12-15 or more into smaller groups and/or appointing a backmarker.
