this being only my 2nd group ride and all, I really don't have any experience to base my opinion on but I think what you're saying sounds like a smart idea to break up into smaller groups like that

one thing I have learned is to open the gaps up when in the twisties to a couple seconds or more. Also good to split the larger groups up when in the tighter stuff (like 3090), then regroup at the end.

Well...I certainly ain't "runnin" nothing and do not want to offend anyone so I will speak in "I" statements.

I have ridden the forest probably 10 times. I KNOW I can't keep up with the fast guys but I also KNOW I am faster than some of the other peeps.

Whenever we take off from a rest, I know that (a few examples) Tiatool, Moocbr, hooligan, onewheelmoto, jayboy, max etc. are faster than me so when we pull out I wave them by and don't ride out of my limits to keep up. Nor do I hold them up. I just let them go. I also know who is slower than me so I try to fall in line in front of them where I belong. 3090 is no road to be jockeying for position, trying to pass, following someone in corners who is making mistakes, etc.

By the time we got through the forest, in Anderson, prior to 3090 I had an idea of where I fit in on this ride.

It is important for people to assess their skills and get in where they fit in. People being out of place is hazardous.

On the other hand, how do you tell someone where they belong? I, personally, welcome it.

Just my VERY HUMBLE opinion.

Having said that, the ride was AWESOME and would love to ride with each and every person again, this weekend!!!!

I won't take offense to it either and no one should. It's just a matter of riding as safe as possible. Sometimes there are faster people behind me that make me nervous and sometimes someone slow gets in front of my only to go slow as in turns and haul in the straights. If things are organized right as far as skill level a large variety of skill levels can go out and have a good time together.

What is real fun is hanging in the very back and let everyone go, then you can take off and go as fast/slow as you want and have the entire curve to yourself. Only thing that sucks about this is if you go down, the others may not see you if their a good way's ahead and not looking back.

You can solve some of the flying down the straights deal if you set a reasonable speed limit for the ride. That can also change as the ride goes, once you get a feel for how everyone is doing.

I prefer to keep groups down to 10 or so, so splitting up might not be a bad idea.

It was nice to see everybody highly geared up. I stopped for a bio break just before the forest and got to see everybody on bike when I returned. All geared... didn't see anybody riding seriously outside of their limits.

Good ideas, I had never ridden that forrest ride and should of hung back on that turn to be able to identify what i was in for, but I didn't which was a BAD on part and was glad i didn't bring anyone else down with me, but its good, a little bummed about the bike but I am up and running again the bike is out for a week but hey WE LIVE AND LEARN, RIGHT! Like Thomas Edison said I didn't make a mistake i just found out how not to do it right next time!

Very good points... I wasn't myself and slid to the back after 3090 on the way home. Some like myself dont speed during the straights hence the reason we stay far right... come on around... we'll catch ya in the corners


But we do have a good group of riders here who do care about eachother. Only recommendation would be to have someone who has some experience run the back group through the trails at a consistant speed they feel and know that group can keep up.

ditto for me too! i KNOW i am way slower than the majority of the people on these rides and also i am very new. I welcome any and all comments or suggestions, especially when it comes to safety. i feel like if i didn't learn something each day, was it really a good day? sorry if i ask a bunch of ???'s when i've been around some of ya'll but i watch how you guys interact and ride and i see that there is so much for me to learn. many thanks to those who speak up - you have no idea how much a comment or two about how to manuver or what things to look out for really do make a difference. i would much rather someone tell me what i'm doing wrong than to have something happen to myself or anyone else

While 149 (forest) will give you somewhat of an idea of a persons skill. It is in no way comparable to 3090 as evident by the past two weekends.

Point blank tell them.... Don't rely on ego's or their perceived skill level... Its not only their it could be the person in front or behind them that also gets unknowingly involved..

it was nice to see all of the bike in a looooong line heading down the straights......

and we did kinda break off into grops naturally as the ride progressed.....
i was the last guy most of the day ( other than the sweeper ) and I had a ball.


i was riding my boss's bike and had no intention to push it..................but i managed to have some fun and got home safe, and thats the important thing.
