Just how much riding in a group makes one safer? There are roads and routes i would love to ride but am fearful of being run over by a car. Would my safety margin increase greatly if i get others to ride along with me? I often hear or read of riders getting killed or worse..permanently disabled from car collisions. Only the big ones involving numerous riders makes it to the news or newspaper.....the single rider's family suffers alone.
Surely a bunch of riders stands out more and makes a drugged up, drunk driver sit up and take notice compared to a single rider. Their innate fear is that if i run one down the others will attack me.
