Rules and regulations of rides and sites

Site Rules

This site is hosted in China with a ICP. No politics or porn or other stuff that might get us switched off is allowed. We host in China because we are here,  it is the quickest option and dont want to get blocked.

Ride Rules

These are group dependent so check out individual groups for their exact exact rules.

For Puxi Wednesday and Saturday rides we try and adhear to the following;

Dear Peloton,

In the big Saturday group ride please take special care on
some issues:

  • Ride in lines of 2 cyclist beside each other
  • Overtaking only on the left side
  • Point out obstacles clearly to warn the cyclists behind You  (additional shouting is also good)
  • To regroup into the line, point the gap to the back cyclist
    let others regroup into the line
  • Ride in constant speed
  • No abrupt acceleration, the long group ride is not a race! (this also counts for attacks from the back field;
  • If it gets hard to keep the pace, bite your teeth together and try to do it, don’t loose the front cyclist’s wheel;
  • Drafting is OK but leave enough space to the wheel in front
  • Use ‘Soft-Paddeling’ to balance the gap to the wheel in front
  • No wheel overlapping, this is dangerous!
  • Safe Your attack power for the ride back home from ‘Trinkstand’ (well…maybe not ;-))
  • Don’t ride on white lines, especially when roads are wet

Special ATTENTION:

  • take care about the gaps in the road, e.g: the steel expansion gaps on the last bridge before the Trinkstands, the gaps in the middle of the canal roads, …
  • Once your front wheel gets into the gaps, YOU WILL CRASH
  • Several terrible accidents happened in the past!
  • Be very careful of the white road markings when wet and cornering. You will probably slip over and crash.

Once an accident happens:

  • manoeuvre around the group involved
  • then slowly reduce speed, no abrupt breaking, it will make the guy behind you crash!
  • This also counts for the cyclists in front of the accident

Slower riders:

  • try everything possible to stay in the group as far as you can!
  • drafting saves a lot of energy! even if it gets tough, always remind yourself that it gets tougher (and less fun) once you get dropped!
  • we ALL started slow and only by many training rides we made our way to the front of the pack!
  • if you get dropped, try to recover while continueing cycling at a constant pace, others get dropped soon and You can form a chasing group!

One more thing:

  • We are all doing this for fun and we have to take care about each other
  • But in the groupride everyone is responsible for her/himself, this is what makes those rides possible!

Some other notes:

  • Red lights – follow the law and stop for them. They are there for a reason. How much of a rush are we in?
  • TT Bars – 2014 was the year of many accidents and some caused by people on TT bars. Only get in your TT bars if you are at the back and no one is drafting or if you are 5m away from another person.
  • No earphones while riding in the group.
  • Also for post drink stand longer rides, its assumed that the group sticks together and should regroup every 10km to allow the weaker riders to catch up. Lazy riders should wechat the group that they are not going to keep up and not to be waited for.

Please let us know if you have other suggestions of what should be stated on this page.

Thanks Jens for the above;

骑行和站点的规则条例

站点规则

这个站点在中国建立,获取了ICP的,没有政治和色情色彩,我们在中国建立,是因为我们在中国,这是最快的选择,不想被阻止。

骑行规则

这些是团队骑行规则,因此要检查下很多单独的其他团队有另外的规则否

亲爱的Peloton自行车

周六的大部队骑行请互相特别注意一点问题

  • 两个自行车肩并肩起,两列骑行;
  • 只在左侧超车;
  • 清楚地指出骑行中的障碍地警告在你后面的车手(如果喊下听得到的话喊也可以);
  • 要重新组合成线,请指向差距背骑自行车的人;
  • 让别人重新组合加入骑行队伍;
  • 保持速度骑行;
  • 不能突然的加速,大部队的骑行不是一场比赛!(从背后超越也算违背规则);
  • 如果难以跟上脚步,紧咬你的牙齿,尝试这样做,不要放松前自行车车轮;
  • 漂移是可以的,但在前面的车轮处留下足够的空间;
  • 使用soft Paddeling来平衡与在前面的轮子之间的差距;
  • 不要把轮子搭接起来,这是危险的;
  • 从 ‘Trinkstand’ 的回家的注意保留自卫的体力(嗯…也许不);
  • 尤其在路面湿滑时不要在白线上骑行。

特别注意点

注意路边的间隙,在到trinkstand的最后一座桥,路中间有个大间隙

一旦你的前轮卡到间隙里面,你会坠毁

以前发生过一些可怕的意外

有白色标注的路面要特别小心,当路面湿滑的时候,你有可能会滑倒或者摔跤。

一旦事故发生

要让你的团队知道

然后减慢速度,不要紧急制动,这样你后面的家伙会被你绊倒

在事故面前这也很重要

比较慢点车手注意了:

尽量争取自己跟上大部队的节奏

滑行节省了很多的体力,如果路面变得骑行困难,提醒自己,如果你落后了的话

我们开始的时候都速度很慢,只有有些训练骑行,我们才会争取在队伍的前面骑行。

如果你摔倒了,接着以一个持续的速度恢复过来,其他的人速度会慢下来,你可以组成一个追逐的队伍。

还有另外一件事情

我们骑行运动是为了乐趣,我们必须要互相照顾

但是在团队骑行中每个人都要对自己负责,这才能使我们的骑行变得可能。

 

另外的一些注意点

红灯-按照交通规则骑行,我们见证了多少事故,因为没有准守这个准则

TT-手柄-2014年我们看到了很多由于自行车TT手柄引起的事故,你只有在最后一个的情况下才可以使用TT手柄,没有人漂移,或者你在跟别的车手离开的距离有5米远。

集体骑行的时候不用耳机

另外针对于比到Drinkstand更远的长途骑行,团体必须一起骑行,每隔10公里要重新组合队伍这样可以方便那些体力差点的车手可以跟上大部队,懒惰的车手要微信给团队如果他们不想赶上去,告知大部队不用等他们。

如果你有任何其他建议觉得应该在这页被呈现的请联系我们

谢谢Jens提供给我们以上的信息。
