I struggle between wanting to ride alone, and wanting to ride with some friends. On one hand I really like group rides (small groups of 3-4), but I don’t have the same kind of control. I can’t stop to take a photo of gorgeous scenery, or take a quick break. I have to ride with the group and wait with the group, not something I’ve ever really been fond of. Sometimes I get pretty anxious just waiting around at a gas station while everyone smokes and chats, I just want to get back on the road. But I do love the company and security that comes with a group.
I really want to do this ride and take photos but I REALLY don’t want to go alone because a lot of it are less traveled, dirt roads miles from any town. What to do, what to do?
What do you prefer?
