This group is less supervised and structured than the Relaxed group, and is geared towards experienced riders with street motorcycles. Control Riders observe riding ability and encourage faster or slower riders to move up or down a group. Passing is allowed everywhere except the inside of corners. Minimum gear requirements: Textile jacket & pants, boots that cover the ankles, riding gloves that cinch at the wrists, and a helmet that is DOT approved. A spine protector is highly recommended but not mandatory.
