With all of the talk and pseudo-legislation about group rides and bans, I was wondering why we cyclists are letting these people define what a "group" is. Who are they to say? If 10 people leave a common point on bikes and spread out, it really ceases to be much of a group almost immediately. If someone is riding even 4 or 5 feet away from another cyclist, at their own pace, spinning or grinding, busting a nut (or labia) against a wind that won't stop, then that is a SOLO ride. Send that same group of 10 out for a ride and have them each record their experience. The recounting of the ten stories will be as unique as the author of each! That singular enjoyment of essentially the same thing is one of the reasons I love cycling so much. I do my thing, you do yours, and we'll still have the shared experience to draw us together. Simple, right? Later! Travel Gravel!
