Group Rid­ing Tips

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - BIKE -

1 HOLD YOUR LINE. It’s re­ally im­por­tant that you are pre­dictable in your move­ments and you don’t weave when you’re rid­ing in a group. That goes for tak­ing corners, too.

2

SIG­NAL. Ev­ery­thing: turns, pot­holes, that you’re slow­ing down, parked cars up ahead, etc. (I’ve never seen an ac­ci­dent caused by peo­ple over com­mu­ni­cat­ing what’s coming up ahead.)

3

STAY RE­LAXED. There will in­evitably be some con­tact along the way. Be­lieve it or not, you won’t come off your bike if you bump shoul­ders with some­one. Don’t hold the han­dle­bars in a death grip – guide your bike and re­mem­ber to hold that line.—km
