Riding with a Group of Cyclists

"Isn’t it more dangerous for me to ride with a group of cyclists than on my own?"

It depends. Sometimes group riding can be more dangerous, and other times it may be safer. When a large group of cyclists are riding together, it is really difficult for other drivers to miss seeing them. Whereas if you were riding solo, negligent drivers may be more likely to miss seeing you on the road by yourself. However, this is not always the case. There are times when group riding can be more dangerous and cause a Georgia bicycle crash—even between riders.

When cyclists in a group follow too closely, a front tire of another bike can hit the rear tire of your bike and cause you to crash. This is why it is very important that any riding group must include experienced cyclists who know how to leave the correct amount of space between bikes. Additionally, it is important to leave the pacelines only to the experienced riders. Sometimes in group riding, cyclists forget that they are not the only ones on the road. It is important when riding with others in a group that everyone checks for traffic and rides safely.

Sharing the road is always each rider’s individual responsibility. Often, cyclists may follow other front riders without even checking for dangers on their own. For instance, never follow another rider into an intersection without checking the traffic lights and for traffic before entering. Although there are some dangers to group bicycle riding, there are also many positive features. You may learn new techniques from other cyclists and improve your skills. Plus, you will be helping to raise Georgia cycling awareness.
