Learning Group Riding – A great way to learn how to cycle in a group is to practice with a group of friends. Simply pick a route with little traffic and work on getting comfortable following each other closely. Work on taking short “pulls” at the front and maintaining a steady pace geared towards your slowest rider. Talk a lot so that you know how everyone’s doing. Don’t overlap wheels. When it’s your turn at the front, don’t accelerate. Hold the group pace. When you tire, pull off and soft pedal until you’re at the back. With regular practice, you’ll find that group rides are a blast because you can cover ground so much more easily than when riding alone.
Today's Word of the Day
Short for Did Not Race. If you register for a bicycle race or a
century ride and then for some reason can't be there to ride it, the
officials will usually put DNR next to your name. DNS is also used, for Did Not Start.
