We will be encouraging you to ride as a group wherever possible, although ultimately it is your decision how you ride.
We find riders will naturally fall into small and medium sized groups as the event progresses. Around 10-12 per group is ideal.
These groups are flexible by nature. If you are having a good day, you may want to push on with others. If you are having a bad day you may wish to drop back and join a more leisurely group behind you.
Find a group of people of a similar standard and maintain a sustainable pace.
