Swivel on it
So my girlfriend and i head out on a ride today with 2 people from BCSB who i know and trust as riders, and one guy who i've never ridden with before (who also had a passenger). We meet up with this guy on #1, and take off for Princeton with this guy in the lead. The traffic was pretty heavy, and within a minute of being on the highway, the lead bike starts weaving between the traffic and taking stupid risks just to get a few cars ahead. It's like he's riding by himself, not leading a group. A few minutes of this and the other 3 bikes are well ahead of me because i'm not willing to take risky moves with my girlfriend on the back with me. 50k's down the road and they're GONE. Nowhere in sight. A few open stretchs of road and i've gotten up to 180kph to try and catch the rest, but no-one in sight AT ALL. If this was you, would you have carried on, or turned back? Me - i stopped, text the other group members, and headed home. The whole point of this ride for me was that it was a GROUP ride, if i want to ride solo, i can do that any time i want to. Far as i'm concerned, if the leader of this "group" ride has no respect for the guys at the back, and is not interested if they're still following, or have gotten into an accident trying to keep up, then i'm not going to ride with em. There's no way i'm taking stupid risky moves to keep up with some monkey with something to prove. Nadia, thanks for stopping to make sure we were ok. At least ONE of the group had some sense of group etiquette. End of rant.....
