Planning a long distance ride with a group is like a dream which many people have. Some certainly don’t get a chance to fulfil it but lucky are those who get it. So if you are among those who are blessed with this opportunity, given below are some tips for riding long distance in a group.
Having a proper sleep before going for a long ride is quite important. Having eight hours sleep is a must. Don’t just stay awake in excitement. Even you should take nap in between while you are travelling if the journey is too long. If you have to leave for the journey at 5.00 am, be sure that you have a proper sleep and if any case you are unable to sleep then you should start your trip little late.
It is very important to state a proof of your identification on the vehicle. You might be in a big group but you can even get lost or some mishappening can occur. So, in that case, you should stick to your details on the vehicle. Even this should be done on the luggage too so that if you lose it, then someone can contact you and return if they found it.
Technology is a great help but do carry printed map along and share with all your group members. It will be easy to see routes and go according to it.
It is very important to see the road clearly. You should just observe the routes and follow accordingly. Don’t trust other riders blindly. Even see that you don’t block the whole road as even other people have to move. So go in a group but leave some space for passersby.
Don’t just carry your watch along. If you will be wearing it, you will probably be looking out at a time after every few hours and worry that you are getting late. So, in that case, you will increase the speed. So just leave your watch and go on enjoying your ride.

Take the tools along as you never know when the vehicle can stop working. Maintain cordial relationship with people so that you can also ask for help when needed.
