    Group Mt Bike Rides

    I have no idea what to expect. I have been on Group Road Rides, but never dirt. How does a group ride work on single track?

    Thanks

    It really depends on the group. Some rides self sort (fast out in front, slow in the back) and some have predesignated A/B/C groups, and some are a total free for all. Some rides will have a lead and a sweep to make sure no one gets lost or dropped, and some don't. Where the group is going to ride can be an indicator:easy or more difficult trails is one indicator. Some are social, some are race training. I've been on rides where everyone will stop to session features, and I've been on rides where any sort of stopping is really frowned upon.

    It can be a good idea to contact the organizer/leader and ask them how it is set up.

    Ok, I can see how that would work. I had a funny image in my head of a peloton riding around trees.

    It's a women's only ride, so i don't expect a large crowd.

    Thanks for responding.
