Getting together with your team and taking the time to ride is one of the most beautiful parts of our sport. The lifelong friendships, shared laughs, and connections made on the bike are among my favorite experiences. Period.
In a world of social media, we’re unique in our tangible experiences – and not to knock SnapFace too much – we’re afforded the means to help put the ride together effectively with the tools we have today more than ever. Still, there are some basics that can help make your group ride a successful one and that’s what we want to share with you today.
Group rides can be one of the best experiences a rider has. When so much of our time is spent training alone, the opportunity to ride with friends can breathe new life into the activity. Conversely, if miss-managed, it can also be an unpleasant – even isolating or discouraging activity. Keep safety and inclusion forefront in your mind and it’s hard to go wrong.

The last lap took everything she had. She crossed the finish line euphoric and then slumped over her bike, weaving to a stop and bent over, exhausted from the effort.
We all have a pain cave. The question is - how deep do you dig when you approach it? How willing are you to push beyond your perceived physical and mental limitations? And what is it you fear most that you tend to avoid because it shines a light on an area you need to address?
