Well..it seems the "buddy system" actually worked.. At no time was any rider by himself... As time passes, and we know each others riding style and comfort pace..we can better pair riders ..

Regarding the buddy system, I don't think you need to try to keep up with or ride together necessarily, but look for each other in the group at stop signs, rest stops, etc. If it's a large group, then you'd want to at least stay in the same part of the group, so you're not trying to look 6 or 10 riders ahead or behind trying to find them in the bunch.

Yeah, but onetime on a different ride we lost the Hulk on 149. We went looking to him, but kind of difficult to find a green bike in a green forest. Luckily he turned off, but nobody knew. If he had a ride buddy it would have helped. Maybe.

Well The logical next step would be to buddy up with Lawrence's buddy..
I think no one should be left alone.. Just in case..

I agree! If something happens to me on a ride I would rather someone know than not. Time is very critical in the event of a crash.
