I have nobody to bike with!

Theres nobody around here that keeps up with me on the trails!!! the only two friends of mine that share a need for speed are away on vacations


biking alone is never as much fun...

i'm not very fast, but they're just unusually athletic casual riders and arent that comfortable behind the handlebars.






it started thundering as i was heading out anyway, so i didnt get chance to ride regardless =\

I am just the opposite. I love to ride solo. I am at that point in my cycling life where I am still herky-jerky when to comes to hills. I can whip along at 20-25mph on the flats, but the hills darn near stop me dead. Some of them, I am lucky to crawl up at less than 5mph in granny low!

I still haven't a clue about protocol of riding in a group, or even one other person. When to lead? When to fall back? I guess it is something I will have to learn as my wife is pressuring me to join a club and my doctor is pressuring me to join his.

i dont mind a good solo ride once in a while, but competition really helps you push yourself, plus its fun to have someone to chitchat with while taking a break.


if you're not certain about ettiqute, i'm sure you could ask someone in the group before your first ride

Please, don't complain! Be glad that you can ride. I haven't been on my bike since July 17th when I went over my handlebars. My elbow still hurts, I'm not sure when I can ride again. Just go out and do a couple of extra miles for me.

You might want to contact A. Troll. She likes to ride with just about anybody, especially handsome single guys.

Well, I don't think the "not single" part bothers her much. I'm not sure about the "not handsome" though!!
