Do you ride alone?


I was wondering today what most people prefer; riding alone, riding with a friend, or riding with groups.

🤔 For myself, I enjoy all three. Lately, because of the Corona virus, I’ve been mostly riding solo. I have gotten together a few times with a friend, and once in a small group for the unofficial R4R 200k.

If I had to pick one, it would probably be riding with a friend or two. I really enjoy the relaxed pace and conversation. It’s definitely a lot easier to say hey, let’s take a break up hear when it’s just you and a buddy riding. Try that on a group ride and you might find yourself riding solo on the way back. 😂


Riding alone isn’t all bad though. It’s great for challenging yourself or just getting out and clearing your head. The one downside of riding alone is that it’s not as safe. There’s safety in numbers. Also, who’s gonna hold your bike when you have to water the corn. 🤷‍♂️

Anyways, just my thoughts. What about you? What’s your preferred ride?
