What's the point? I understand riding with a bunch of your buddies, but I feel like riding in huge groups greatly increases your chances of going down, and it can't really be that much fun. I was riding up to NYS yesterday, and coming the other way was a huge group of maybe 30 or so riders. It was a mixed group of all kinds of bikes, I'm not sure what kind of organization it was, maybe just a riding club. Anyway, I thought to myself, how is this fun? I felt claustrophobic just passing them the other way, I can't imagine what it's like to be in the middle the group and have to constantly worry about the people in front of you and behind you. All it takes it one rider with bad technique and you could get multiple people down.
