That's fine. You can contact a moderator and have this thread deleted as to not be redundant.

The part about the stunting that really bothers me is that you said to keep it in the left lane(ok) or the oncoming lane(wtf?). Having someone stunt in the oncoming lane is probably one of the most dangerous rules I have ever heard. There are rides strictly for stuning, keep the stunting to those rides IMO. Otherwise, good list and definately some good points in there that should be addressed with every major ride.

One a two lane road, how do you describe the lane used to pass slower traffic? I think it's the oncoming lane. How would you describe it?

No, no.. obviously not many people bother to read all the stickies, and this thread has brought up some good points and discussion.

I was not arguing the semantics. The idea is what bothers me, having someone stunt in a lane with oncoming traffic is absurd. Stunting on a group ride is bad enough alone, but to limit it to a lane they shouldn't be in for any extended time is extremely dangerous to the rider, all the riders around them should they have to avoid someone coming at them, and the drivers going in the opposing direction.

Sounds like you share some other folks views for a "no stunting" rule. Sounds reasonable to me. The "stunting rule" comes from language I've heard ride leaders use.

I think stunting on group rides should fall under the same heading as passing in curves or over blind hills.

There is a place for everything, if someone can't chill for one group ride, maybe they need to skip it?

One other thing to add... myself I discourage drop-ins along the way. I've seen and heard of a couple occasions where riders joined a group mid ride, and then caused or almost caused accidents.

If you don't show for the pre-ride meeting, I prefer to not let you drop in along the way.

I agree. Couple the fact that these type threads don't get stickied, along with a not so good Search feature, and....
