  • Use three basic positions to start with

    Position 1 – Left hand side or left hand wheel track Position 1 is the left hand third of the lane (not including the gutter). Riders should adopt this position for maximum view on approach to right hand bends, when turning left or when moving away from oncoming vehicles that encroach into their lane.   Position 2 – Central position between the wheel tracks This is also referred to as the ‘neutral position’ and mainly used for new riders, it gives maximum safety margins to both sides if dangers exist on either side. Position 2 is the middle third area of the lane, in between the right and left wheel tracks.
