Now onto Part 3 in our series on Group Riding. We’ll wrap up with a smattering of techniques and tips to help you master the skill of group riding. Let’s start during our preparation for the ride.
Welcome to Part 2 of Group Riding. In Part 1, I wrote about why we ride in groups and how it’s safer and more fun to know and abide by the long-established rules and techniques. This time, I’ll get into the various formations, or pacelines, we use to stay organized.
With more people showing up to the Saturday morning MMC group ride, it’s a great time to tackle this topic. Riding in a group, just like any language, becomes second nature with regular practice of proper techniques.
