A certain amount of planning and pre-ride effort goes into a chapter ride and it is the duty of the Road Captain to assist the ride leader before and during the ride. If you are new to group riding , or experience a road side problem during a ride, a Road Captain will be there to assist you. The Road Captain is also an experienced rider who knows how to ride safely in a wide variety of conditions and is there to share that knowledge with anyone who wants it.
The Prairiethunder H.O.G. Road Captains are people who have displayed those attributes and volunteered to help out on many of the rides we have each year. Most rides are led by Road Captains but every member of the chapter has the opportunity to lead a ride if they so choose. Just let us know where you want to go and we’ll help set it up.
The term of service for a Road Captain in our chapter is two years with elections held every year for half of the positions. This way, we have a group of experienced Road Captains to help indoctrinate new people into the role during the following year. This is a voluntary position in the Chapter but is one that is as important as any officer’s position.
