I can ride for hours in my own company. It’s something I’ve always done and always loved. I’m at peace with my own thoughts, with nothing but the hum of my tyres to get me lost down the open road. That said, there’s something extra special about a ride with a great bunch of like minded folk. Rolling turns, chatting rubbish, sprinting for signs and of course catching up over coffee!
For a while there COVID put an end to most bunch rides (and still has in some parts of the world) but as things slowly get back to normal I’ve been doing my best to get back into the bunch. It also helps to keep those bunch riding skills sharp! Staying smooth and sitting just inches away from the wheel in front at high speed takes continual practice to maintain your edge and confidence.
What’s that saying? Happiness shared is happiness doubled. So true and that definitely applies to cycling. So what are you waiting for? Round up some mates, grab your bike of choice and go smash some miles together! You can thank me later. :-)
