How We Ride

Feel the buzz on mass ride outs!

Being a member of Clyde Valley HOG means you can get involved in some of the most exciting rides out there. The scenery and roads we have on our doorsteps are amazing and not to be taken for granted, they are waiting to be explored, so our aim is to hop on our trusty steeds and see as much as we can!

Clyde Valley Chapter is very well known across Scotland and we are always made to feel very welcome wherever we go. We ride out in every direction to cover as many miles as possible.

We are all about having fun so come along and be part of something major.

Staggered Formation Riding

The Chapter rides in a staggered formation for safety reasons. The minimum recommended spacing to the bike directly in front of you should not be less than two seconds.

The bike in the lane to your left or right should not be less than one second ahead of you. You will find that two seconds is a long distance when traveling at motorway speeds but is still advised.
