About McDowell Mountain Cycles

I have six sisters, two daughters and four granddaughters AND my best friend for the last 45 years is a woman. You could say, I am pretty accustomed to being around women, strong women, amazing women. I want to highlight two strong and amazing women who I am proud to call friends and bring attention to this awesome project they are creating.

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.
