On smaller group rides, it would be good to know the riding style of the organizers. For example, someone mentioned “low and slow” in a comment—I love that! It would be the a great ride for me, as opposed to speedy and rambunctious (can’t think of another description). I’m a relaxed rider and am in it for the wind and the scenery and I like to take my time and stay within the speed limits. Great article!

Great article. I lead lots of group rides and your advice is excellent. Always a chat prior to departure so expectations are voiced is so important. Also who has the smallest gas tank will be the gas stop gauge. Fun and safety are most important for a great ride.

Another detail is if you are joining someone else’s ride, don’t try and change the ride details to suit your own agenda. I’ve been involved in group rides for more than a decade and in that time I’ve lost count when ride participants show up for a planned ride and try and change the route on the lead rider. Planning rides takes a lot of time and energy. Gas stops, distances, group experience are all considerations for a group leader when planning the route. Plus, it's just plain rude to try and subvert someone else’s ride.

Thanks! I’m a newbie and appreciate all the tips I can get. I was fortunate to ride two up before my first group ride. Now to learn hand signals.
