Paying Good Advice Forward
I've been riding for about 5 years, and frequently ride with a seasoned group of riders. One of my friends gave me great advice for riding in a group that I have never forgotten:
1. Always ride your own ride. NEVER feel pressured to ride any faster than you feel comfortable. The riders around you will slow down to accommodate.
2. He usually leads and he said, "If you can see my eyes in my rear view mirror, then I can see you." Good to know-- it helps me make sure I'm never in anyone's blind spot!
