I'm leading a group of friends on a ride down the Oregon coast, all experienced riders but we've not really done group rides. For a couple of these guys its the first time going more than a few hours from home.
So i need a crash course in leading.
Any tips on keeping us together in traffic, signals to use... For instance how does the guy in back signal that he wants a pee break? How to manage the group splitting up in a strange city? I'm giving every one printouts of the planned route, along with everyone cell numbers, buts its a pain in the ass to have to stop and call.
All help would be welcome.
