    Solo about 90% of the time. I like to ride before work a few times a week and other riders I know cannot do this. Weekends I sometimes ride with a few people.

    Lone wolf here. Have little spare time, so I ride when I can ride. Most of the time thatīs when other people canīt ride. I would prefer to ride with one or two buddies mainly for safety reasons. Crashing and getting injured alone is not something you would like to happen (happenned to me once), so I ride much more carefully alone than I would whith company. Also Iīm quite new in the sport so I donīt know many people and very few guys in my town practice enduro riding (90% XC, 9% DH, 1% enduro). The only enduro trail close to home is almost always empty. Then lone wolf is the way to go.

    Pretty sure I've mentioned this on here before, but I'm ugly and have no friends so I always have to fly solo. Even when I don't want to.

    Daily, every once in a while I'll pick up a riding on longer rides on weekends. My best riding partner just passed away Jan 22 and the first time I get out on a ride we used to do together is going to be a tough one. Looking forward to it and not. I was telling my lbs guy about it and had to walk away not being able to finish the story about Mike. After I composed myself and went back he asked how long we knew each other. We played high school football together and hung out. We have been friends most of our lives and had reconnected through FB about 10 years ago and started riding together about 5 years ago.

    I am solo at least 80 to 90% of my rides. Hey, at least, I like my own company.

    I prefer solo although I'm OK with one other person. It seems as though when I'm with a group there are too many stops.

    3 kids so just get out when I can, hard to make plans.
    New to riding and have actually never done a group ride before. Having a blast riding solo.

    I pretty much ride alone. I like it for the most part but I do occasionally enjoy the company of other riders.

    I prefer riding with my best friend but we have different work schedules so lots of solo trips for me. I do slow down a bit when riding solo for safety reasons but still have a blast. Definitely clears the head and leaves me with a smile on my face.
