Don’t forget to adjust your alarm clock for end of Daylight saving.
Some tips for cruising as a group from previous experience.
Front car usually the organiser, who knows the way and doesn’t have to read instructions.
Always keep the car behind in sight, it everyone does that it works easily.
If you come to a turn and can’t see anyone behind you, wait in a safe place till they see you,,If you can, or go slow for a while.
It helps if the lead car drives about 5 kph below the limit to keep everyone together, with inevitable snags.
The fun of these runs is to see the other cars in front and in your mirror, if people speed, the convoy spreads out so much, one may as well be on a solo drive.
We are on show, make a good impression
Be patient, be mellow, smell the breeze, it’s not a race. If you want one of those, start at 4:00am! ,,, I’ll be asleep then,
No hooning, remember, roads quiet, but Police very aware of car clubs doing Sunday morning runs on the nicer roads.
Put a bright coloured car in the middle, make it easier for the ones at the back to see the way.
Tell everyone the end-point in case they get lost.
More fun if we stick together.
Even with written instructions, most people just follow the car in front ( I will, no navigator) so if the group really spreads out, some get lost.
