Group riding is a whole new set of skills to learn.

You have to focus on the person in front....  if they stop suddenly, you need to react.  You also need to watch their riding to give extra warning of that pothole or other obstacle in the road.

Another important factor is to remember that there is someone behind you - so you need to not stop suddenly, give clear signals, and try to maintain an even spacing  - no one wants to feel they are dropping back behind the pack because the person in front is going too slow.

Speeding to catch up after dropping behind is dangerous...  you have less reaction time and less stopping time if the person in front slows or stops and you are accelerating directly towards her!

It's good to see a group riding. It looks like they have parades and in order, especially if they have the same vehicle and clothes. Thank you for sharing some advices when doing a group ride. We should really focus on this to avoid accidents. I hope you can post more about this. I am looking forward for your next one.
