i don't race, but i've been on a few local crit-style training rides. they are a lot of fun, and offers good training. but, at times, especially at the turns, things can get a little sketch (other riders as well as myself). just seems like all it takes is one person to mess up and the whole line goes down. so, sometimes i question whether i should even come out to these rides, since i don't have a training goal or race schedule. also read somewhere (maybe on BF, maybe in a magazine) that it's foolish to train hard or go on a regimen if one does not race or have a reason for training. any thoughts?
