Sorry Billy....
Always! That's the whole point of riding with a group!

I could tell some scary stories but I won't.

I thought the whole point of riding with a group was to get some great crash pictures .........................and to have Noobs to carry your beer

Sorry about that Billy... I think the whole thing started at the first fall. Once you were up I rode off thinking all was well before you had everything all sorted. That kind of set the tone of "It's Billy he'll be fine." My bad. I owe you a beer.

that and an orange paint job!

i waited for everyone about half a mile from the bottom of indian canyon to take pictures. hordes of bikes went by, kicked dust in my face, and passed me, wasn't sure if billy was one of them. anyway, stood there for several more minutes for the dust to settle down. no one else came up, and i assumed by now all the FFs are in front of me. and if there's someone left, he ain't coming.

once we made it to the top of BPL, and about 15 more minutes of waiting, traveltoad volunteered to go back and look for billy. after hearing from others that bb had a bike problem, some of us assumed that bb had decided to take soledad and bailed out.

anyway, whatever assumptions and reasons we had.....they don't justify loosing

sorry brutha... , next time stick to the nOObie group...we never lost a rider yet...... , we're so slow that you can do a trailside oil change and still be in the front of the pack....


another issue:
group ride rule #3...we have a trail leader and just don't go on your own. i saw some guys taking off in front of nw, that's , this was also prevalent on some of the past rides. you may be a faster rider than the trail leader but if you come and join our rides...you have to sacrifice some of your personal needs and go along with the group. riding fast and getting in front of the group are tolerated, but you have to tell the ride leader of your plan. as much as possible, we don't encourage individualism in group rides.....

rule rides

i take this opportunity to lay down some of the basic rules of the ride. nothing new, just pure common sense and respect to the other members of the group.


#1. ride your own ride and wait for the rider behind you at the junction, speed up a little but be safe, try to catch up with the group and be safe. do not ride beyond your skill level, and if you get hurt, you just screwed up everyone's ride.

#2. bring spare parts and tools....we love helping others get back on the trail, but hate giving away the only spare tube we rely on if we have our own trouble. if no one has the spare part you need, you just screwed up everyone's ride.

#3. respect the ride leader.

My old Mountain Biking group had an unwritten rule...

If you crash and cannot make it off the mountain on your own power... you owe the rescue group lunch on your next ride.

I'd be too broke to ride if I had to feed all my rescuers.


But everyone would want to ride with me for the free lunch.
