How to handle a situation.

Ok suppose you post a ride on here and a few people show up drunk / stoned. or you know the person is a dope head.
Of course i care about group safety.
So I politely tell them they are a danger to everyone on the ride. And they are not welcome to ride with us.
But they still insist on riding with the group ..because it was a ride posted on a public forum.
Then they come and stand in your face and say ...wtf are you going to do about it...

How would you guys handle this scenario.
What would be the Right thing to do.
What should I not do?
Do I need to post that stoners and drunks not welcome?

Or should I just stop posting rides because these bad people will keep doing this every time I post a ride.

Again this is just a scenario.

You did the right thing in my opinion. We risk our safety riding with cars everyday.

I tell him to leave or I will call him out in front of everyone.. safety of mine is a 10, of others along side me is a 10+

others don't have to suffer loss of your nice rides for a moron not thinking clearly

You gotta tell colin to stop that man! Da faq

I think if you took the time to post and lead a ride, it is well within your rights to exclude whoever shows especially if they are high or drunk.

High and drunk belongs on the couch not on a fast ride. What we do requires a clear head and it is still milliseconds separating good ride from bad ride.

Ride leader can eject who the want.

You homies will help you. We got your back!

Easy fix.
1-Tell a couple stand up guys whats going on.
2- Pull the person aside politely tell them they can not ride with the group. They are more than welcome to ride behind the sweeper. If that doesn't work give thumb up
3-couple of stand up guys let the air out of the tires.
Problem solved.

I'd quietly ask some other people there if they noticed anybody acting strangely, and base my action on their responses, possibly asking for their input. Then if y'all decide that it's best to confront the person(s), i would do so with a small group on my side. That way it's not a situation where the person being confronted feels the need to act out and cause a scene, but me having a coupe others with me would prove that i wasn't being unreasonable. Also it would allow more "power in numbers" for getting what i want (for them to leave peacefully).

I'd be hesitant to harm their safety, and that also may cause them to react and retaliate in an even worse way.

Well the way I look at it. We face enough dangers and challenges riding on the streets sober. We cannot control the cars, animals, debris and many other factors out there. But we can control the influence of drugs and booze in our group ride. So why not

get a few of the other riders together... as a group tell them that you can not keep them from riding, but that you are not going to ride with him...and that none of you are leaving until after he does....let them know that they would be welcomed to ride on future rides when they were not impared.
if that does not work, call the cops and tell them that someone under the influence is causing trouble...protect someone who is drunk or stoned from themselves.

Does not sound like they are hesitating to harm your safety. Give a couple bucks and point to the closest airpump.

He tried to show up drunk to another one of your rides? Thought he didn't have a street legal bike.
