Without larger group rides, I would have no idea where I would fall into the slow / quick pace with the rest of the local riders.

I took the advice of another rider and ride my own ride which means I'm not hauling
yup, i ride quick on roads i know and ive ridden on but never fast like i do on the track. street isnt a good guage and only makes you learn bad habits.

We would much rather have to wait a few extra minutes at each stop vs waiting for a tow truck or ambulance to arrive. At least that is the standard SSB speech. I think the last time we had to wait, it took about 2 hours for a truck to get out to 3090 north.

But we did get a good pic out of it. Local hound leaving his mark of disapproval IMG 0031sized

I like groups of 3-10. Anymore it seems to get into too much of a mess.

Altho it was a bit chilly today! 149 and 3090 were nice.

+1 To the few who organize rides through this forum. They show real leadership skills. They are also doing it out of the love they have for riding, and of riding with other people. They are not mandated by their membership to take on such responsibilities. So, to all the leaders on the forum. Much thanks for your time that you choose to share with us. Happy New year to you all.

Figured with all the renewed interest in group rides I would dredge this up.

I still see lots of posts for "what are we doing" or "when is this xxxx kind of ride?"

Set something up people! Don't wait on everyone else, it ain't easy to do an "official" group ride and the planning involved.

If you want to post up a ride, post up the date, time, expected gear, general direction, and expected riding styles.

A great example is the latest Sunday ride by Brandon.

On the other hand, I don't recommend posting up planned routes unless you plan to 100% obey the speed laws... nuff said on that.

Last advice is if you plan out and post a ride, stick to your guns. If you say you are leaving from XX spot, stick with it. Leaving at 8 am? Good deal, let's roll at 8. The more you bend and change plans along the way, the more disorganized it gets. Also, be realisitic.. trying to get everyone to meet downtown to head out NW at rush hour doesn't work too well.

Have fun!!
