Leaving Rides Before Destinations

Lead Road Captain

Sertainly! Safety is paramount during any ride, and notifying the Lead Ride Captain (RC) is crucial.

Here’s why:


Risk Assessment: The lead RC must know all riders and potential hazards. Notifying them can lead to missed safety checks or inadequate risk assessment.


Emergency Response: In case of an incident, the lead RC coordinates emergency response. Without their knowledge, delays can occur, jeopardizing rider safety.
