cycling tip 14

Be courteous, a group ride is meant to be fun. Starting a ride with the intention of showing up anyone, cutting in, sitting in, generally being way too serious. Riding together is a great social gathering, you don't always need to have that racer's edge, Sit back enjoy the scenery or have a chat, don't feel the need to always make the front group at the cost of pushing 95%, so out of breathe you can't even talk if you wanted. Enjoy the day. Of course there are the Race rides where nobody stops if you get a flat and the talk is limited and the idea is to strut your stuff, if I have learned anything a little wit goes a long way, so stay cool, and don't be a dick.
