It's better that YOU keep it that way cuz you're a hazard to everyone in the group

Riding alone is ok, but sometimes it's nice to have a few buddies to chat with on breaks.

Plus, if you ever go down and have bike issues, it's nice to have a little help.

Also something else to keep in mind... make sure to ask your "spirited" riders to be mindful and respectful of the slower rider in front of them. There's no need to ride his , revving and trying to get around. Give them some time and space, then pass when it's safe. Feeling that you're "holding everyone else back" is one of the reasons a newer or slower rider will ride in over their head.

Those fun twisty backroads will ALWAYS be there. Your buddy, his bike or his limbs may not.

Group Rides---a few years ago, Awesome Cycles conducted group riding classes and I think they were free. You might see if they are still having those classes. Those of us who attended learned a lot. My old instructor (Walturd) said that a good ride leader will go only as fast as the slowest rider. I think that pertains to all the groups listed in the proposal. How about it Challen?

Kind of overly optimistic
Oncomouse not. I'm saying that there are already laws in the books that cover speed, lane maintenance, following distance and passing. If your groups are so big and fast that you have to make a whole list of rules on your own then you're doing it wrong.

Follow the laws that are already in place and you'll be fine.

I'm,........... fearful to ride in a group.
Most riders IMO, have NO clue how to ride on the street, NOT just them but everyone else out on the road too.
I just feel I have more "personal space" on the road when I ride alone. I just feel safer.

I'll see if I can find someone willing to run one. The problem is, this forum has WAY more members than any other forum/group that we've ever done one for.......and yet, to date, holds the record for the worst turnout.

But I'll ask if any of the Instructors are willing to do one and post up if so.
