ok so im prob gonna sound like a bastard but here goes anyway


im sure i dont ride as much as most people ,im usually sanding or bike is down some other bullshit but the whole "group rides " thing i dont really get .First its hard enough to get sort of used to how your best buddys ride let alone 20 strangers .Not just that, but when there is 25 other bikes its kinda hard to stretch your legs or stay in a safe position around newbies and stil have some hooligan fun .The most people ive ever riden with was 5 and i thought that was a lot ,,constantly checking if one of em is gonna wheelie past me when im about to swerve around a pothole or some shit,or if i hoist up the front and hes an idiot hitting the brakes for no reason or just plain old sucks .Now if you know your riding buddies ,you start to learn each others riding and usually stay out of each others way,go at a pace you want to be at ,and if they get lost behind a truck you can count on em to split a lane or rip down the shoulder to catch up without question .Then there is keeping it a group the whole time ,its only going to be as fast as the slowest person so you dont loose someone at a red light or stuck behind traffic . If 50 poeple wanted to ride TO a hangout and meet there to talk shit ,eat some grub,grab a drink and on your seperate ways,that to me is cool ,BUt to gather at a spot ,bunch up into a giant pack ride to another spot ,tell stories of the 30km ride and all the dangers you faced when your leg cramped or you had a really bad itch ,,that boggles me .
I guess its the whole "brotherhood of bikers thing" yes i have a bike and yes you do too ,,,and ??? now we have to hold each others dick in the washroooms? personaly id rather ride by myself ,do what i want ,go where i want or maybe just one another bike and we can tear shit up and still stay out of each others way ..I couldnt imagine being stuck in the midle of 50 bikes puttering up the road pretending to be some kind of sorority cuz we all have a bike and a helmet.i think its weird ,,just a personal opinion ,,just my 2c

First of all, it's an opportunity to make new friends. The way I see it you can never have too many riding friends.

Second - It's fun! We ride in stagered formation....nobody is yelling to turn which way or whatever the hell you're talking about. Apparently most bikes come with signal lights on them these days (not sure about frankenbikes?) and we also use hand signals.

So why rain on our parade dude? We all have lots of fun on group rides and having fun is good enough for me.

I always like to have at least 1 other person riding with me when going for a serious ride. If I fly off into a ditch and knock myself out, there's someone there to get help and vice versa. But I agree with Hakeem in that the large group thing is annoying.

A - They're slow and I hate waiting for people
B - I don't trust people I don't know. If I got take out by another rider I'd probably kill him/her.

So there is a balance, there's safety in numbers but when those numbers grow too large the safety aspect is diminished. Personally, nothing beats a hard ride with 4-5 of your good friends that are of equal skill level.
Different opinions are great Nicely put definately a little better then saying we need someone to hold our dicks for us...

Someone's crashed on almost every group ride I've organized. So I don't organize them much any more. I'll go on some occasionally, but feel free to bugger off if I want.

I enjoy riding alone the most. Few people seem content to rip the corners up while going the speed limit on the straights.

However, I will put a Mt. St. Helens ride together again this year, since I like to encourage budding sport tourers who may just need a little guidance the first time or two out.

For me, the group ride thing is about propogating a love I have for a sport which has brought me tons of great memories.
