the fastest person at the front, lol.
I don't really agree with this. I was always told in 2-3 person rides, put the person with the least experience up front so they ride at their own pace. If you put the fastest up front, the person in the back feels pressure to keep up and ride out of their skill level.
In large groups, don’t EVER put an inexperienced rider in the middle of the pack. They are being pushed both forward and back and will have problems, especially riding out of their skill level.
As far as stopping goes, both pull up to next to each other at a stop. Someone mainly stop left and the other pulls up right. This helps old ladies without depth perception not hit you. When you start to move again, whoever is leading goes first.
When making a turn, the follower needs to make sure to leave themselves an out incase the leaders washes out to avoid hitting them.
Never ride next to someone at speed.
Always ride your own ride…It’s very hard to do sometimes when riding with friends.
Remember that you are working together as a team to minimize risk. If you cut a car off, the person can’t follow you. This means that when making lane changes and quick decisions, make sure you leave enough space and reaction time for the both of you.
This list could just go on and on. My advise is really only for the street, track is totally different. Just be smart about it and have fun. Try riding with another group and let them know you haven’t ridden it groups before, they will gladly teach you so you don’t wreck them. Maybe someone on here can take you around your town and show you the ropes.
