Whether you’re a cycling team, a group of buddies, long time friends, or a group that just met, when you ride together you form a bond that makes for great camaraderie. Everyone is looking out for each other be it if someone gets a flat tire, runs out of food or water, or starts to lag behind. There are few other disciplines that bring people together like cycling does. Embrace it. The bonds you make will last a lifetime. You’re not only sharing in conversation but also the effort. Your struggle together over that long climb gives you a closer bond. Ride together, stay together. It sounds like something your parents would say but riding a bike is just as if you were still a kid isn’t it?
