i'll start it.
1. plan your ride, ride your plan (and have an alternate plan)
3. ride within your own skill level..max out to 75% of your capability.
4. take it easy at the end of the ride..after 3 pm when more accidents happen.
Don't know how practical this is....But...one a ride like yesterday's desert run...we need to break into smaller groups.....A,B,C....by ability...
Each Group rides independently....we meet in the morning...at lunch and at the end of the day.....everyone can ride their pace...
To make this work....each group needs a trail leader that know the route...this can be taken care of in advance....
