Groupie

Yep your dead right, if your not careful it's very easy to be pulled into the wrong line and fook knows what's going to happen next.  Hope all those involved are all not injured.

Group Riding

I love riding with the o/h.  He's miles better than me, and when he rides above my limits, I just stick to mine, then he waits for me further on. :wink:

When we first moved here, we went out with a group of locals.  Never again.  Some mad idiots, and happy to drink pints and brandies at breakfast.:shock:

The bunch of us that ride out most Sundays are similar in style and age, so we have gelled well.:biggrin:

I like group riding,

but I usually stick with the same group. If we're joined by anyone I haven't ridden with before I like to stay near the back and see how it goes. If there are nutters about I usually make my way home and try again another day.

I do love riding with all my girlfriends but they are definately more competitive than any of the guys I ride with. Now and again I can be tempted to misbehave too. :biggrin:
