I went out the other night with a couple of guys from the LBS. They pushed me hard which i loved, but they ran every red light. I am a cautious driver and an even more cautious cyclist. I rode motorcycles for tens of thousands of miles and I know the kind of damage a car can do to someone on two wheels first hand. They weren't interested in waiting for me or stopping at lights for me once they saw I like to stop for red.
1. Should i harden the **** up and ride how they ride?
2. Should i keep safety in mind and catch up after every light?
3. Should i find a group to ride with who respects traffic laws and safety the way i do? Does that exist?
