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.
