It is unbelievable how much comradeship we form during on group rides and it always makes me wonder how much psychic bonding occurs.
Even the most unfriendliest rider that I have met at the end of a long ride they are effused with brotherhood/sisterhood confirming that we must have just shared more then a ride.
I've heard of group showers (I won't name names) and much more occuring during long rides, especially when you have mixed group of riders.
What do you think? do we form a bond when we ride?
